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.

An Appalachian Hipcamp Road Trip: A MKE and O-HI-O pitstop on the way to Tawney Farm, West Virginia

Day 1  Scott had gotten a lucky gig to check out some off the beaten path campsites for Hipcamp. Our trip was going to bring us to the Appalachians. We packed our car full and headed east "early" Friday morning. Early for us is never that early, but at least we got out on the road at a decent hour. While driving through Madison we stopped at Cabela's to pick up a few more supplies that we would need. Our original plan was to make it to Indiana Sand Dunes tonight. Scott mentioned that if we drive through Milwaukee we could skip the Chicago tolls. I agreed and then he asked if we could stop in Cudahy to say hi to the folks. I said we might as well stay the night.  When we got there we went to Tsing Tao with my dad, my childhood favorite restaurant. It's in an old Ihop and has a great buffet at any time of the day.  Sorry Scott, I wasn't impressed. That's because your pretentious. Anyways, Meadow decided she didn't want t

An M&Ms Halloween

Theo's been on a Mario spree recently. Mario Maker 2, Bowsers Fury, Mario Odyssey. He's also been getting a bit riled up by the challenging moments.  It was crunch time for me to get these costumes done before Halloween. Meanwhile I once again ended up in the northwest exurbs. This time I purchased a used Iron Sleek backyard rink setup. The kids are going to have the best winter ever.  Somehow I managed to haul all the hardware and 19 long 2x6s. The kids Christmas present had made it home safely. I guess while I was gone the kiddos actually played air hockey. Fitting. Sometimes they get along.  The fourth costume and I was finally getting the hang of these appliques. These were looking so good.    Meadow dug into one of her old lego kits. Busy day. Must mean a visit to La Casa Market for deli tacos. So good. Love that it's just down the street.  I did the finishing touches on Scott's costume. These costumes are really meant for kids and teenagers so I had to alter Scott

Winter Camping for Brooke's 29th Birthday - Part 1

All winter we had plans to go winter camping, but because its been so so cold we had to keep putting it off. Scott was supposed to work on my birthday and last minute didn't have to. We decided this would be the perfect time to go before the snow melts.  I think we would've went earlier in the worst winter in recent memory, but a baby and sub-zero temperatures don't exactly mix.
