Theo's First Kids Birthday Party

Last month I asked Theo what he wanted to do for his birthday. He said he wanted to have a birthday party. We let him invite 5 friends at school for a gathering at our house.

Well, I told him he could invite more, but he said those 5 were his friends. I guess you can't argue with that.

Meadow helped out with most of the planning and decorating.

Can't say I did much other than order the pizza and pickup his cake.

The anticipation was palpable.

And then Theo's first friend arrived.

Theo requested Dominos and fruit and veggies.

I ordered way too much pizza. Partially because we forgot to mention lunch on the invites.  

Since it was a math and number themed party we played Bingo. The other kids weren't quite as patient with the game as Theo is. After one round they were ready to move on.

They were too excited to play together anyway.

Is there anything cuter than a kindergarten birthday party?

Maybe we should have a cheap cake for the kids next time. There was so much leftover on the kids plates.

After everyone left Theo opened his presents. I just can't make people sit around while our kid opens presents.

He got a DIY lantern and remote control car.

The RC car the size of  a hot wheels was so cool.

Then Meadow and I sold some Girl Scout cookies. This is her first year doing a cookie booth.

Theo had told all his friends there was going to be a fort at the party. The friends seemed more interested in the toys.

Happy Birthday, Theo bub.

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
