Twin Cities is Twice the Fun

We spent last weekend in the Twin Cities visiting one of my very dear friends Alisha.  She and I met and Kansas State and became fast friends.  She was there through some really rough times that I had and then on one of the most wonderful days of my life she stood by my side again.  Needless to say we have a lot of memories and a friendship that continues to grow.

Matt and I took this little road trip with other great friends of ours from Kansas, Leslie and Joey.  I actually met Leslie and Alisha at the same time and our friendship has grown a lot since I moved back to Kansas.  Joey and Matt and like 2 peas in a pod so there is never a dull moment when they are together.
You can barely see this but Matt is riding his golf club like a horse, and Joey has a dart gun he was shooting off. 
 Never dull moments!

We left Thursday evening after work and arrived in St.Paul, MN around 2:00am.  We were tired and went straight to bed.  On friday we headed out to see Alisha and get a few things for the game that night.  We were going to the Twins vs. Royals game at the new Target Field on friday night but we came unprepared.  A big storm blew in and it poured down rain most of the day so we had to get some rain gear, just in case.  After our little adventure to the store we headed to a place called Psycho Suzi's for a late lunch and beverages!  It was such a neat place.  We really wished it wasn't raining so we could have sat out on the patio, but no big deal we still had fun.  If you are ever in the area, you have to go.

After lunch we headed towards the field because we didn't know what traffic was going to be like.  We got their early so we went to a pub and have a drink before the game.  Thankfully the rain let up and it turned into a great evening for baseball.  And for all the Royals fan's it was a great ending game, when Hosmer hit the 9th inning homerun!

Saturday the girls went shopping and the boys played golf at the only course that was open.  We didn't realize how much rain had come down until we saw a few roads were closed due to flooding.  It was crazy.  That night we got all fancied up and headed to Bradstreet for some dinner and great drinks.  This place is super cool and they make some wonderful drinks.  They do not call themselves bartenders either, they are mixologist!  Another great place to go if you are in that area!

All in all, it was a great weekend!  I am so thankful we had the chance to visit and I look forward to many more adventures with my great friends.

4th of July fun

We had an eventful 4th of July! Since we live do not live in the city limits we can set fire works off at the house, and the boys had way to much fun with this! There were some left over from last year that were shot off and ones that were bought this year....and then this happened...

Yep we caught the grass on fire! Thankful we got in under control and did not have to call the fire department! haha, it was a lot drier than the boys thought. It was an eventful evening though. We did have to buy a new fire extinguisher so we are ready if it happens again.

Sunday we headed east to Perry to hang out with family and friends and had a great time. I didn't take any pictures...guess I need to get better at that! On Monday we went to Wamego for their parade and wonderful fireworks show! The show last about 25mins and was so worth the tiredness I felt the next day at work. We will for sure go again!
All in all it was a great celebration weekend. Look forward to the next few weeks flying by and then we head to Minnesota to visit my friend Alisha!
