My cousins keep sharing awesome pictures from their day the Minnesota State Fair. It involves corn dogs, cheese curds, and s’mores beer. I’ll fire back with negronis by the fire in the woods.
Tonight we marked an important day by making a special dinner to remember and celebrate someone who taught me so much about family and food. I would not be where I am or who I am without him. We miss you, Uncle Ron. Thank you for everything.
Note the wine.
Our first day at the farm went well. We visited three of them! We saw cows, pigs, horses, and lots of kitties.
Now that is a mouthful! What a great photo of a American white pelican taken at Bear River Migratory Bird Refuge.

Wow. That’s big mouthful
Frank ended up sleeping in today until 7:15. So when we woke up we hustled to get to the beach. It is just over an hour away. The little guy insisted that we were going to the beach to see, “Sharks, an octopus, fishes, and a baby beluga” whale. While we did not see any of those we did find a big clam. The weather was perfect, the waves small, the water cold, and the beach crowded but pleasant. Definitely a redo. We lasted about four hours and left, everything covered in sand, for a trip to Woodman’s for fried clams for lunch. Everyone just woke up from a nap.
We spent some time outside this afternoon. I started watering a flower and the kiddo decided to run through the water. One thing led to another and soon he was soaking wet, laughing, and 15 minutes had gone by. When we came inside I spent a few minutes making this video.
Frank managed to climb into his water table today. He celebrated by practicing his touchdown dance. He has currently been screaming, “Mommy open the door!” from his crib for the past 15 minutes. Can’t win them all, big guy.
