We decided to splurge this year and go on a mini anniversary trip. I am SO glad we did! It's hard to make a decision like that when we are trying to save for our adoption, but we know focusing on our marriage is important, too. We had a great time--although we were only gone 2 nights, we were so relaxed it seemed like much longer--as a good vacation should!!
Dipping our feet in Red Wing....
About to head out for dinner (this photo was taken at The St. James Hotel)
Enjoying some great beverages and lunch at Nelson Creameries. YUM!
Great lunch at Nelson Creameries!
A nice scenic overlook in Wisconsin called Buena Vista Park.
Our anniversary dinner was at A to Z Pizza Farm. Fun and delicious! Every Tuesday this farm serves fresh wood fire pizzas. You get a pizza and need to bring everything else yourself!
My side had roasted beets, onions and goat cheese. YUM. Like our fancy plates and wine glasses?
Our dinner dates. A group next to us had an accordion and were playing awesome modern music--it was so fun!
We had a great time watching Griffin's first t-ball game. He did a great job hitting the ball. He did a great job fielding the ball. He did a great job throwing the ball. And, he did a great job entertaining us:
My parents have a hummingbird nest in their huge, beautiful oak tree. It's hard to spot since it's so tiny and blends in so well with the tree. We assumed there were eggs in there since the mom was sitting on the nest so much, but it turns out that there are tiny babies in it! It will be fun to watch them leave the nest when they are ready!
My mom, Griffin and I had a GREAT weekend last weekend! After running the Foot Lake 4, my parents met me with Griffin to walk in the Willmar Fests parade with CDS. After that, my mom and I took Griffin to my cousin's graduation party--we had such a good visit with them. We stayed in a hotel that night, then headed to the MN Zoo (thanks, Anita!) on Sunday. We had a blast seeing the animals, watching the coral reef feeding and the dolphin show, riding the monorail and playing in the splash pad. The weather was fabulous (and wasn't in Spicer), so we really lucked out!!
