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.

Meadow's 3rd Birthday Party with Special Guests Mr. Mike and G.G.

My parents called the day before they arrived saying that they were coming for the weekend. My mom had to work late on Friday so they left early Saturday. This weekend turned out to be super humid and hot. As soon as they arrived I suggested we go to the Science Museum. Mr. Mike was astounded by the the museum. Partway through our visit we took a break to see a national parks documentary in the Omnitheater. This was Meadow's first movie.  I was surprised to see a lowly midwest locale featured. At one point in the film they went ice climbing at Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore. So cool. There was so much to see here that we didn't quite get to everything. And this is the second time we've been here in the past few months.  It was actually less busy on a Saturday than during the week when school groups are here. As we were trying to leave we kept finding more things to do. I had a chance to see space. You look astounded. Must be

Grand Rapids to the Gunflint Trail: A Work-cation

Scott had a few jobs in Northern Minnesota to do so he packed them all in to one week to make a trip out of it.  I offer a special rate for my 360 photography to Minnesota tourism businesses through Explore Minnesota.  We would be making stops in and around Grand Rapids, Duluth, Grand Marais and the end of the Gunflint Trail. Of course I have to bring the family along.  If I'm going to have to take off work to stay home with the kids, I might as well come along too.

Beaver Creek State Park Hiking Club (with a Layover at Frontenac State Park)

After we dropped Meadow off at school on Friday morning I made some last second plans to camp in southern Minnesota this weekend. Once we picked up Meadow we headed towards Red Wing. Red Wing Brewing has some really great pizza. The crust is something special. So we stopped there for dinner. Getting back to pre-COVID life is a bit strange, but we're getting used to it.
