The Last Weekend on Bryant Avenue We Made it to Open Streets

We've been making sure that Meadow plays with the neighbor kids before we move. We'll really miss their whole family.

 All of our neighbors have been great.  

Theo swung while I attempted to pack the garage.

The kids have been making do with what's left that we haven't packed yet. 

Packing is a lot of work. So much stuff. 

The days are still warm so we took one last trip to the neighborhood playground. 

We've been making meals out of what we have in the house already. That way we have less food to pack since we have to fit everything in the fridge into a couple coolers.

Hopefully we won't need masks soon.

Our last Sunday in the condo happened to be Open Streets Lyndale. We were busy most of the day but made it for the last couple hours. First we had to drop off all our library books. 

I still don't get why we don't do Open Streets every Sunday like they do in Mexico City and much of Latin America.

Theo is still afraid of other kids. 

We made it only as far as Sonny's so why not stop for ice cream. cream.

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.
