Theo's 4th Birthday, Fun Day

 

After a busy last few months at work and at home I took Friday off to spend the day with Theo. First up was asking him what he wanted for his birthday breakfast. He chose a chocolate big pancake. 
 
 
I told him we can do whatever he wanted today. I thought we might go to the childrens museum or something but he just wanted to play toys. 
 
 

We also had to celebrate his birthday on Animal Crossing.

Lucky guy got to spend his whole day with mama and papa. Since we've been getting our condo ready to sell, moving and most recently fixing up the rental, we've been so busy. 

Next Theo wanted to go to the Bobolokin Woods.

I sure do miss walking over here everyday. Felt kind of weird to drive over. 


Going to Boblikin woods was at least what he said. Really he just wanted to play under the trees at the Peace Garden.

He was having a blast. 


Soon the wind picked up and we convinced him to go to the toy store to pick out a toy. He wanted to stay all day. 

Then we picked up his cake. Theo chose an ice cream cake and we let the little bub choose one in person. He went with the Oreo Ice Cream Cake at Sebastian Joe's.

At the Hobby Shop he chose a remote control car. He has been asking for one for awhile now. 

Lucky kid. His very own remote control car. 

Since the rental is empty we decided to race it around down there.

For dinner we went to Sushi Train. With Omicron cases in retreat, we thought we'd have some fun. Who knows when the next surge of cases will pop up?

This kid loves his sushi. 

These kids too. 



Meadow and Brooke said I ate too many fancy ones. Whoops.
 
We eat a lot in general.  

Back at home it was present time. 


Theo was excited for present time.

He's been wanting his own art supplies. Now he doesn't have to share with Theo or use up our tape. 


From Gigi he got slinkys. 

And a northwoods counting book. 

Then one last surprise from Meadow. 

His own bean bag chair. 
 
So excited to try his new paint set.
 
I was excited for the decadent ice cream cake.




Happy birthday, little bub!
 
We love you!

A Tettegouche Camp Cabin and Roller Garden Brooke Birthday

Saturday It's become a yearly tradition to stay at a cabin for my birthday. Since Saturday night was the only night that worked for us this year, our locations to stay at were slim. We had casually checked places all week. We hoped to stay somewhere with snow, but all those places were far away or booked. We decided to wait to see what was available on Saturday.

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

Honeymoon But With Kids: Pictured Rocks, Beers and Beaches

We stopped for lunch in Grand Marais at The Dunes Saloon Lake Superior Brewing. That's the Michigan one. Not the one in Minnesota. Love the old bar vibes. We started with these massive bacon and cheese stuffed tater tots. They were so good.  The pizza was just as good. A much better brewery than Tahq Falls brewing. Scott wasn't so sure about having lunch here, we had to keep up with our Beaches and Brews theme of the trip.  Meadow has turned into such a teenager lately. She's so embarrassed to take photos with me now.  Oh, I'm going to miss having little kids. T he Lake Superior waters have been giving Theo all the curls.  Next we headed over to Sable Falls. We planned to see the eastern part of Pictured Rocks today since we were staying to the west of the park.   I attempted to recreate a photo from 10 years ago.  Back on the North Country Trail again. This trail runs 42 miles through Pictured Rocks along the coastline. I've now added it to my bucket list to thru-h
