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.

Aurora Peeping at the Cottage on Mother's Day Weekend

I had PTO to use up so we made a trip to the cottage for Mother's day weekend. It isn't too often we drive up on a Friday so fish fry was a must.  I would've stayed home and painted, but you guessed it, it was still raining. On the way we took a slight detour up to Lehman's Supper Club up in Rice Lake.  We've never ventured up here from our typical route, but it's kind of the start of Up North, which means lots of restaurants for the tourists. The kiddos got spaghetti. Of course we got the fish fry. I'd rank Lehman's as a mid to low tier supper club. Ambiance is meh. Fish was forgettable. Good salad. After reading reviews later I guess the main attraction is the entree's that include a relish tray and popovers.  But they do have a great bar. My dad has been busy working on Chelsea's bedroom upstairs. She upgraded to a queen bed and we needed to get the box spring up stairs.  It would not fit. Close, but we were really searching for a solutio

With Spring Comes Biking

Whenever daylight savings changes I flip the mattress. (I know I'm a little late) Every new season I change the duvet cover.  Scott actually helps me this time. Yup, I'm cool like that. I was a little worried we had too much dough so we got out every pan that could be used for muffins. I was wrong, we only needed two pans. By the time we actually eat "breakfast," at least that's what Brooke calls it, Peanut has already finished most of his Organmix. I know, we spoil the little runt. Speaking of Brooke's fascination with breakfast, she will not eat anything that resembles lunch for her first meal of the day. So, even on the laziest Sunday, breakfast comes before lunch. As you can see Brooklyn really loved her muffin-fast -- even if it was already 1 p.m. While I finish up some dishes Brooke cleans the kitchen. Did you know that Brooke is a cleaning expert (really, she'll clean your house or cook for you. H

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. Since we were near Fergus Falls we had to stop by the abandoned state ho
