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.

An Appalachian Hipcamp Road Trip: A MKE and O-HI-O pitstop on the way to Tawney Farm, West Virginia

Day 1  Scott had gotten a lucky gig to check out some off the beaten path campsites for Hipcamp. Our trip was going to bring us to the Appalachians. We packed our car full and headed east "early" Friday morning. Early for us is never that early, but at least we got out on the road at a decent hour. While driving through Madison we stopped at Cabela's to pick up a few more supplies that we would need. Our original plan was to make it to Indiana Sand Dunes tonight. Scott mentioned that if we drive through Milwaukee we could skip the Chicago tolls. I agreed and then he asked if we could stop in Cudahy to say hi to the folks. I said we might as well stay the night.  When we got there we went to Tsing Tao with my dad, my childhood favorite restaurant. It's in an old Ihop and has a great buffet at any time of the day.  Sorry Scott, I wasn't impressed. That's because your pretentious. Anyways, Meadow decided she didn't want t

Winter Camping for Brooke's 29th Birthday - Part 1

All winter we had plans to go winter camping, but because its been so so cold we had to keep putting it off. Scott was supposed to work on my birthday and last minute didn't have to. We decided this would be the perfect time to go before the snow melts.  I think we would've went earlier in the worst winter in recent memory, but a baby and sub-zero temperatures don't exactly mix.

The Biggest Maple Tree in Minnesota

On the night before St Patricks Day, Meadow made a leprechaun trap.  Maybe next year Meadow.   Meadow was having a rough morning and needed a hug.  She wanted to play Zelda all day long. The rest of us wanted to go on a hike. We spend so much time getting these kids to get outside and once they are outside they don't want to come back in. Scott chose this weeks hike based off his current love of old growth forests. Wolsfeld Woods SNA just west of the cities in Medina. It's home to the tallest sugar maple in the state.
