Back to Bokoblin Woods in the Winter

Meadow requested big pancake. I asked if she wanted regular or chocolate and she said both. 

You outdid yourself, breakfast chef.

We used to go the Roberts Birdy Sanctuary seemingly every week before our last move. So, now we have to make an effort to make it to Bokoblin Woods as we like to call it. 

I think we need to go on more adventures. 

Yeah, we can't do that when you always need to go for walks. Or maybe we can...

Since it's full of moblins and bokoblins, the kids needed to bring their master sword and bow.

The woods are a dangerous place. Even for link.

Bokoblin Woods and the Lake Harriet playground? Spoiled.

They have a swing set at home yet their favorite thing at the playground is the swings. 

They simply can't get enough.

Then we spoiled the kids more by promising them ice cream. 

It was a reasonable walk to Sebastian Joe's in Linden Hills. So, why not?

Meadow loves her drawings. 

Theo and I worked on his new electric car lego kits.

Post Vaxx Memorial Day Weekend Fun in Three Lakes

  We went up to the cottage for one our never-miss weekends, Memorial Day. We got to the cottage at night and in the morning I made some crazy bacon-pancakes for the family and Brooke's parents. This weekend was my annual deep clean of our car. The amount of crumbs and food under the kids seats was pretty disgusting.   

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

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. Since we were near Fergus Falls we had to stop by the abandoned state ho
