Riding the Bus to MIA for Family Fun

Finally the family days at the MIA are back in person. 

We decided to take the bus since it's a single seat ride all the way there. Give or take a couple of blocks.

Pose in front of the museum. 

Thanks, for obliging.

Meadow wore another pair of her new earrings today. 

The kids wanted to see the gift shop first. 

Why do museums always have the best toys?

The first activity was mask making. Meadow was so happy to be creating. 

In her zone.

Looking good Theo. 

They had some Heart of the Beast Theatre masks on disply.
Looking mysterious, little dudes.

The next activity was making clay creations. 
Theo and I made a couple bowls and Link.
Meadow and I made a kitty and a Master Sword.

There was also a kids scavenger hunt. Theo was bored with this idea and was a little antsy.

It's pretty great seeing folks enjoying the city like pre-pandemic times.

Meadow turned in her scavenger hunt for a postcard of artwork and a squishee. 

Back at home, Theo's always trying to get cozy in our bed.

I did more test baking. This family is loving it.

Don't think I'll be losing anymore weight this fall and winter.

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.
