Minneapolis Weekday Adventures and Apple Picking on the Weekend

Meadow returned to school this week. Our big 3rd grader. 

We went to the inspection at our new house and afterwards walked over to Vo's for dinner. It's going to be nice having this place closer to us.

One of our favorite places and now even closer.

We left our house early midweek since our condo had it's inspection.

While our condo was being inspected we went out for breakfast before school.

I'd never been to Our Kitchen. We always ended up getting donuts from Bogarts across the street instead.

It's always packed on the weekends. Was nice to get up early and get a table.

Why hadn't Brooke insisted on taking us here. It's so good.

Luckily we'll still live close by and stop by again. Note to self though, only order one pancake per kid. They're huge!

We dropped Meadow off at school and walked over to the "Boblikin" woods as Theo calls it.

A few days later we went apple picking. I am now all for the early apple picking. There's way less crowds and you get the good apples. 

Meadow couldn't wait to get picking.


I'm loving Meadow's outfit choice today. 

We started by picking honeycrisp.


I remembered these trees being much smaller last year, they really grew this year. 

Eventually Theo helped out.

Though the apples were kind of slim picking.

They were pretty tiny.



Then we picked zestars.

And we were done before we knew it. Apple picking goes so quick compared to picking blueberries.


Since we were close by and we had some time before the Packers game we went over to Afton State Park.

First game of the year. Woo. 

I think this park is pretty. 

We just let the kids play on the beach. Their favorite thing. 


I explored the shore a bit in between telling Brooke all my hair-brained schemes for the duplex we're buying.



We recently got a new blender. I had an old Oster blender that I had since I was 20. It was never very good at making smoothies. This one actually has a button for smoothies. 

Thanks basement store that's no longer in a basement.

Then it was Packers game time. They played horrible, but we ate well.

Morgan Comes to Minneapolis and We Go to Southern Minnesota

I went to the monthly North Minneapolis Bicycle Advocacy council meeting w hile Brooke, Meadow and her friend Morgan went kayaking.

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
