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.

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.
