Walking to the Kingfield Farmers Market and More Fixer-Upping


After being in school for only 4 days Meadow already brought home germs. I seemed to be the one that got hit the hardest and was sick all week. It was nice to get out for some fresh air after a week indoors. 

We decided to go for a walk to the farmers market, but first needed to stop at the hardware store.

September is the absolute best time to go to the farmers markets around Minneapolis. Brooke loves the downtown market, but this one has just as good of selection. Just fewer vendors.

The temporary guest room was all painted and light fixtures were hung. Now I had to clean all the dust before our guests come next weekend. 

It felt like a big step forward, but we still had two more rooms to finish patching. Well, the other bedroom was nearly ready, but the big room hadn't been started yet.

I was busy finishing up the lower porch. I guess there was a few more items left on my lead remediation checklist.

This will also be the exterior color on the exterior cedar shingles.

Meadow sewed up Theo's blankie for him so it was sort of a square again. 

Nice job, Meadow

Funny how we never ate Domino's ever and now it's our go to for when we don't want to make dinner. 

The kids love it and it's cheap.

T-minus 2 Months to Wedding

The second week proved to be more of a challenge for our local month. We are starting to crack down on wedding plans. We both bought our wedding attire from the Mall of America. I did feel a little guilty about that. I had originally wanted to buy my dress from a vintage store. I have been looking since we got engaged (even before that) and everything I found wasn't in my size or a style I liked.  Then we bought some candles at Target while doing our registry. Scott bought lunch at Jimmy John's.  All our groceries have been local. At least we're still good about that. Scott was in southern Minnesota yesterday shooting a wedding. I didn't think he was going to come back that night and scared me when he got home.     My sister's wedding is coming up in 2 weeks and I get the honor of making the cake. I tested out different cake recipes.  While Scott made pancakes.   We started out eating by each other.  Then Scott move

Honeymoon But With Kids: Bayfield, Porcupine Mountains for a Night and Unexpected Motel

Once back on the mainland Meadow got to pick up her Junior Ranger badge.   This one was made of wood! Before heading to our next destination we went in search of lunch in Bayfield. We got a simple lunch from a tiny little bakery, the Starlit Kitchen . Meadow says this was the best sandwich she ever had.  The bread was very good.
