Donut Sundaes, Farmers Market Sundays and Canoeing Lake Harriet on a Sunday

We're trying to enjoy our last few weeks in our condo and the neighborhood. We have been going for daily walks, to the park mostly.
 
We will miss the park so much.

 
I saw on Instagram that Bogart's now has donut sundaes. We convinced the kids to leave their kickball game to go get some. 
 
Also loving our new blender. 
 
Thanks basement store.
 
 

Not our neighborhood but one last trip to the farmer's market for the season. With our busy summer we barely made it out this year.


There's nothing better than a farmers market visit.

The house around the corner from our condo was having a rummage sale. We were hoping for the toy chest for Meadow's costumes but it was already sold.

As much as Scott hates it we had to get one more canoe ride in. 
 
I like canoeing. I don't love lugging it to the lake on a cart.

This time it wasn't windy so we could go all the way around the lake. 

Theo tried fishing to pass time.



Can't believe it took us nearly four years to do this.

Was fun to pass and see all the sailboats up close. 

We liked reading all the names of the boats. 



We also had to get ice cream at Bread and Pickle. 
 
 Another one of our neighborhood favorites, but we'll be back.



We made one last stop at the beach before heading home. 

Hey, it's one of those giant row boats we saw on the St Croix. 


We have a few more 80 degree days this week so I'll have to take the kids back for one last swim at the beach.

Backcountry Camping with Kids in Theodore Roosevelt National Park

Day 1  Back in May I stumbled upon Theodore Roosevelt National Park. I had no idea there was a National Park in North Dakota and that it was the northern end of the Badlands. Usually our summer vacations coincide with Scott's work trips. Since he didn't have any this summer I thought we should take advantage of actually taking a vacation. What, my workcations are always classics? I suppose a second real vacation this year wouldn't hurt. We definitely have more time than normal. As long as we took Covid-19  precautions and avoided people. We finally settled on a time to go. Blake joined us so we borrowed our dad's van so we could ride together. Scott had just driven from Michigan the day before. Blake had met my parents in Wisconsin to get the van and then drove from Duluth to pick us up. I offered to drive since I literally only drive twice a month.  I was still pretty tired from a long drive home. Don't @ me for doing this, as the kids say. Our kitty has been havin

Fox Valley Thanksgiving 2022

As always, we made the trip to Little Chute and the Fox Valley for Thanksgiving. Since we don't eat Thanksgiving dinner until the evening. I suggested this year we drive on Thanksgiving day instead of leaving the night before.  First thing when we arrived, G.G. was already giving Meadow gifts. My mom is always spoiling her.   Then we were off to Brittany and Jeff's for Thanksgiving fun. Theo got the longest piece of cheese. Marina showing us her island on Animal Crossing.  I made some maple whipped cream just before everyone arrived. All the cousins wanted to do at first was watch each other game. Theo stayed with us when the kiddos finally started to play something other than Switch. Eventually Theo warmed up to playing with his cousins.  Look at this dumb picture. At least that's what G.G. would say. Chelsea surprised the kids with this cute cookie decorating kit that looks like Thanksgiving leftovers.  Theo just watched. Silly little guy. This cranberry bread that Britt
