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

Grand Rounds National Scenic Byway

Yesterday Scott and I biked this. That's a wopping 41 miles around the city. It has been my goal all summer to do the whole thing and I did it. I got to see parts of the city I had never seen before. I'm glad Scott likes biking as much as I do. I've been working more, but I still seem to be short on money. I need to win the lottery or get a third job. It feels weird not going to school this fall. For the first time since I was 3 I won't have homework. I'm kind of disappointed in a way. I wish I could go to school, taking a semester off was a bad idea. I'm going to be in school til I'm 30.

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.
