As always, a caramel skim latte from Caribou for the car ride up to the cities
First stop: MOA (Mall of America). . . Luke and I kept ourselves entertained in the dressing room with Dad was trying on pants.
They were having a competition – making structures out of canned foods – with local architectural firms to support a local food shelter. . . they were still early in the building process. Le Sueur –> represent!
But had some cool photos from years past. . .
Then, off to Grandma and Grandpa’s house. . .
Grandma Mary just got back from Seattle and brought back a super adorable toy airplane for Luke.
Which he loved for about 2 minutes and then the rug was much more interesting! Oh the life of a almost 6 month old.
Abby did not appreciate having to share attention with Luke – and also he was on her rug. ..
Then, we all went and had lunch at Scott’s favorite restaurant – Chili’s – where he always gets the same thing. . . chipotle chicken crispers.. . so boring! Love their chips and salsa though! And I had a fabulous bowl of potato soup and a yummy sandwich. Great lunch with great company.
Abby being cute in the car – love her paws together!
I had gotten Scott an arrangement from Edible Arrangements for our 4th anniversary, and we went a finally picked it up last weekend. (it is sorta out of our way, hence why we didn’t get it until then.) But they messed up the order and gave me dark chocolate strawberries. And the lady at the store wasn’t helpful at all. . . so social media to the rescue – I tweeted about it!
And heard back from the company and they offered to make it right. . . another bouquet with all white chocolate strawberries – and they were delicious! Thanks again Edible Arrangements for making it right.
Dinner on Saturday night – squash! Abby has learned very quickly to be close by when Luke is in his high chair.
And she tries so hard. . .
notice the puppy nose in this picture! –>
Dad having fun with the camera. ..
And bummer. . . at Target on Sunday to pick up antibiotics for Luke’s 1st ear infection. Boo.
Thankfully, he was feeling good enough later in the day to put on his Packers sweatshirt and go for his 1st family run!
I bundled him up good – cause it was only 55 degrees out. . . and put some extra padding in to help keep him in place.
He did great! And even fell asleep on the way home.
Family pic… or as close as we could get!
And my calf stayed nice and quiet! 3 miles and no pain –> I’ll take it.
Overall, a really nice weekend. .. and I think Luke is starting to feel better from his ear infection.
What were you up to? Any running? Eats at a good restaurant?
