Almost Out of Here: Packing, Crafts and Bike Rides


We made it to the beach one last time this season. I'm really going to miss being able to walk to the beach whenever. 

It's October. Do they call this Global Warming or something?


Theo has been very naughty lately and runs away when it's time to go.

Theo still loves his magnatiles and plays every single day. 

We all love apple pancakes or really any variation of pancakes.

Just a few more weeks before the big move. We have a lot more stuff than I thought. 

Meadow made a bat signal out of paper, a flash light and magnatiles.

Clever gal.

Our busy days mean quick meals for dinner. 

I had to do some test baking for work. There were no complaints from this family. 

Sneaky buddy. 

Smoothies all the time. 

Theo somehow keeps himself busy as we pack, clean and pack some more.

It was another nice weekend so we went on a family bike ride. Grand Avenue is still closed which is perfect for us to bike down and not worry about cars.

Open Streets Grand Avenue has been fun.

We ended up biking right up to Tap Society. 

Snack lunch, FTW!

 While on one of our recent walks Meadow found an origami book in one of the little free libraries and has been hooked since.

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

She stuffs the pinata I work on the cake. the pinata is ready Cevonne has better handwriting My attempt at making a Holga shaped cake. I pick up Scott from school and he is surprised. A couple of weeks ago in his sleep Scott told me that he wanted a Batman pinata for his birthday and that I was going to forget. He doesn't remember saying this. He wishes for a pinata for his birthday next year. We gobbled up the cake Scott gets ready for pinata smashing time After one swing it opens Scott is excited for candy We all go back to the cube because kitty is hungry and to get our drink on kitty wants in on the fun too for some reason because it sounded good at the time. we take the bus to psycho suzi's we order a lot of food the birthday boy gets drunk We take the bus back but only make it halfway home.
