Maple Grove Ice Loop, a Brewery Worthy of a King and a Buffet

 

Pancakes for breakfast. Even Scott joined us.

Brooke decided we should make a day of it. But first we had to go to the library. Theo just kept on handing me the first book he saw.


Like everything else, Meadow always says she doesn't want to go to the library. Yet she finds like 20 books every time we go. 

Maple Grove's ice loop is just about the only reason we head to this side of the Twin Cities.
 
Ice skate season is already almost over. They're one of the last ice rinks still open.  
 

Once in a while we can convince Theo that he doesn't need the trainer.
 
A perfect day. 

Meadow wanted to race around the track the entire time.


Theo doesn't really need it, but he likes to goes as fast as he can (in spurts) with the ice skating walker grandpa made us.

I liked seeing the other handmade trainers. This yellow looks like it has a built in seat in the front. 






We kept on skating until the Zamboni had to touch up the ice.

I suggested we go play on the playground. You know the kids were thrilled.
 
I think it may have been Meadow's idea.  


It is always so hard to leave once they get going.

We checked out Under Pressure Brewing next. It's a Knight themed brewery. Kind of odd, but decent beer.
 
We need to get Jeff and Brittany here. There was tons of drinks on their menu including a Harry Potter butter beer.  
 

The kids enjoyed their rootbeer and new library books. 

The main thing I'd suggest for this brewery is to dim the lights.
 
I agree it would feel more dungeon-y if it was a little darker. 
 
After beer we were getting hungry. We tried to stop at the Super Moon buffet but it was packed. The Hibachi buffet on Lake Street is second best.
 
The buffet was great, but I'd regret having this much fun the next week. Dang you GERD!

Post Vaxx Memorial Day Weekend Fun in Three Lakes

  We went up to the cottage for one our never-miss weekends, Memorial Day. We got to the cottage at night and in the morning I made some crazy bacon-pancakes for the family and Brooke's parents. This weekend was my annual deep clean of our car. The amount of crumbs and food under the kids seats was pretty disgusting.   

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

St Nick and a Duluth Christmas Weekend

St Nick Day! Pitty the fools who don't celebrate this Wisconsin tradition via the Netherlands. Kirby! Cat ornament! Pretty good St Nick loot this year.
