Union Boss Blake Comes to Minneapolis


Blake was in town for his annual Union Conference. After dinner we walked over to Lynlake Brewery for some drinks. 

We'd never been and thought it was about time.

We brought games but they had a hug pile of their own. 

I love when the kids root beers come in fancy glasses. 

Everyone except for Meadow played a round of Sorry.

We've never been to this brewery yet. It always seemed like one that people generally don't bring their kids to. While looking up what this space used to be we discovered its 21+ after 6pm. Whoops. 

I guess the bartenders didn't mind.

It recently became a Packers bar, so maybe Theo's jersey was our ticket in.

The next day, before Blake headed home Theo and I took him to the MIA. I hadn't been here since pre-Covid. 

Blake in his favorite exhibit. 

Theo did pretty good. After awhile he said he was bored and wanted to go home.

There were a few bicycles painted to match artwork in the museum. I loved this one. 

Thanks for coming Blake. See you next time the union is in town.

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.
