So we’ve been at Rock the Garden at the Walker Art Center for about an hour now and no less than 10 people have already stopped Todd to comment on his Smith’s t-shirt. About half of those people asked to take a photo of him, so I figured I should do the same and post about it. Great day for a music festival!
We are headed up to the cabin for a few days….taking two cars this time. Girls in one car, boys in the other…including Hurley! Best three things about being in the girl car?
– It smells better
– We can take a bathroom break whenever we want
– No dumb boy jokes
Looking forward to our road trip and some family fun at the cabin!
It was Minnesota Private College Week last week, so on Friday afternoon we took Greta down to our alma mater, Gustavus. It was a lot of fun to be back on campus….so many good memories, even though it’s changed a lot since we went to school there. Back in 1998, a tornado ripped through the town of St. Peter and caused a lot of damage to campus….I remember going down a few days after the storm to help clean up debris. Although the trees aren’t as large and majestic as they used to be, there are a lot of newer buildings on campus and everything looked great. Greta really enjoyed the visit…it would be fun to have another Gustie in the family!
We had fun watching the Pride Parade today….so much celebration, positivity and color! Although we didn’t stay for the whole parade, we all agreed Delta had the best float and flair. Unfortunately this photo is missing their amazing dancing flight attendant…he was great! In addition to all the candy, stickers and beads that were tossed out, Carmichael Lynch handed out these “choose love” bracelets…to me, that says it all! To see more photos, click here!
We’re up at the cabin this weekend for a quick trip…..tonight we’re checking out some of the recent additions to the little town of Crosby. With the huge popularity of the Cuyuna Lakes Mountain Bikes Trails, the town has seen a resurgence. There are a few new restaurants and this great brewery that have all recently opened….even us wine drinkers are tasting the beer! So fun to see the town so full of life!
It’s crazy to think how much has changed in one short year…..check out my Father’s Day post from last year. At that time, we were still living in Burnsville and had no plans to sell our house and move into the city. We DROVE to the Bachelor Farmer restaurant last year for dinner and this year, we walked the block and a half from our condo! But the one thing that hasn’t changed is that Todd is still the greatest dad. We celebrated by taking our own dads to the Twins game today and then by having dinner at Todd’s favorite restaurant. Happy Father’s Day, Todd….we love you!
After hitting a couple of graduation parties today, we checked out the Stone Arch Bridge Festival for some art and food. As we walked over, it started to sprinkle, but we kept on and were happy to get our fill of festival food. As we finished eating, the temperature dropped and the wind and rain picked up so we decided to try the Nice Ride bikes to speed up our commute home….a fun family adventure! Thankfully, not pictured? Me wearing a dress….I’m sure I was quite a sight while I was riding!
Top five things that have changed in Hurley’s life since we moved to the city:
Being a city pup is a pretty good life!
