Baking and Forgetting to Take Pictures

Theo's always building something on our living room rug.

Meanwhile, Meadow is suddenly really good at drawing.

If she keeps practicing, she's going to be incredible by middle school.

Meadow has been asking for a coconut cream pie since she had some on our big road trip to the UP. After having the ingredients on hand for a couple of weeks, we finally started with the crust.

Meadow requested breakfast like Grandpa likes. Waffles with strawberries and whipped cream. 

I can't find the recipe on the internet, but I made my go to oatmeal whole wheat waffles. They're technically a pancake recipe, but work great.
I finished the pie with the whipped cream we made during breakfast.

Lots of baking lately. I made another gingerbread cake.

This one was amazing.

On Monday night Theo helped me make a homemade take on Hamburger Helper. He ate a bunch of cheese while we were prepping. Of course once it was fully cooked, Theo wasn't having it. Apart from sushi and spaghetti and meatballs, this kid has been so picky recently.

Somehow we were left with a chunk of cheese that looked like Wisconsin.

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

Mille Lacs for the Day

Yesterday I made yogurt and today it was ready to go in the fridge. 

Camping The Driftless

Last month we went to a birthday party at Choo Choo Bob's Train Store . Since then Meadow (or should I say Scott and I) have been hooked on getting Meadow more trains and tracks. I found this awesome deal on Craigslist for a giant bag of trains for only $20. The best part of being a parent is getting to live out your childhood dreams. Craigslist makes that a lot easier.
