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.

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

The Cape Cod of the Midwest

We talked Brittany into joining us for a road trip to Door County, WI. Scott had never been there before ( or so I believe) . Considering how short of a drive it is I'm surprised my family didn't go that often, either.
