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 Northwoods Mother's Day

My mom had texted me last week asking if we wanted to go to the cottage for Mother's Day. Scott didn't have any work on Monday so we headed there for the weekend. I was able to get off work a little early so we didn't have to get there so late.  Driving through Lindstrom Scott wanted to get donuts at the bakery. We didn't have any cash so we settled on ice cream at the Cotton Candy Ice Cream Shop  in Center City. About 20 minutes before we got to the cottage Meadow threw up all her milk. Soaking herself and her carseat. She never threw up like this before. It was kind of scary. She kept asking for milk. I guess I should've known better.

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. Since we were near Fergus Falls we had to stop by the abandoned state ho

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
