Holy Produce

This afternoon we went to Raley's (our grocery store) and found an abundance of AMAZING produce. Everything must be in season right now. We got apples, oranges, bananas, cherries, a lemon, limes, peaches, avocados, celery, carrots, tomatoes, onions, garlic and lettuce.

Back Home

Nothing says summer better than some Extreme Croquet. It's one of our favorite outdoor games and we can resist setting up courses at both my parent's house and at Steve and Deb's. Sometimes the course gets pretty crazy.

During the week we were busy seeing as many people as we could, and for Josh, playing as much golf as he could.

We drove past the new Twins stadium which was beautiful and we can't wait to see an outdoor game there next year!

Then we took a spin over the the new football stadium on campus. It is so HUGE in dwarfs everything around it. It's really amazing to see all the changes in town and new areas being revitalized.

And we couldn't miss Steve's pottery show at the AL Art Center. We went with my parents on Friday and all the pieces looked really great.

Thanks to everyone who made our trip so fun and we can't wait to see everyone soon!

Last Weekend and This Weekend

Last weekend with nothing to do, we decided to check out the Dixon May Fair. With headliners like Jessica Simpson and Chris Isaac, we thought it would be similar to the Freeborn County Fair, but we were wrong. This gross piercing stand was the highlight.

Yesterday, it was 100º out, so we waited until it cooled to 90º and headed up to Land Park to check it out. It was very similar to Como Park in Saint Paul. We walked through the Rock Garden and got some shots of Lucy.

Today, to escape the heat, we went to Berkeley for fun and turns out, they had a Jazz festival going on 4th Street.

On the way home we stopped at an In-N-Out Burger for the first time. They are known for the crossed palms out front and inside it was like a trip back to the 50s.

The menu only has Cheeseburgers, Hamburgers, Double-Doubles (double meat and double cheese), French Fries, Shakes and Soda. And the workers wear little paper hats!

Sunday in the City

Today Janelle and I spent a rainy day in San Francisco visiting some of our favorite shops.
