Winter Weekend Get-Away

Amy and Seth, our PA students, were on Winter Break, so they were the first to arrive in Minneapolis.  They checked out the Mall bargains and restaurants.
And after all, one cannot bring a teenage girl to the midwest without taking her to the Mall of America...so we planned this weekend trip for our family...and for Line...
Lego Land was one of our stops...Line's little brother, Erlend, would be in heaven here!
 
All of these characters...and more...are built with Legos...it is quite impressive...
Next Stop...Mall Lunch...

Emily had to work at the Wellness Center on Friday, so didn't arrive until noon on Saturday...but the sisters are finally all together!
The Lacrosse Game
Jake is a team captain and one of the scoring leaders on the Bison Lacrosse team.  We all went to cheer them on.  The game was very exciting...double over-time...and Jake scored the winning goal...
...WOW...
Valentine's Day Brunch
We went to the Local for Sunday Brunch.  It was the one meal for which we were all together...It was perfect...
Line's mission was to find a prom dress and to eat Bubba Gump Shrimp...I hope you notice that we accomplished both of those tasks!
Saying Goodbye
Amy and Seth were the first to leave, as they needed to be in class by 7:30 this morning.  The rest of us observed the Presidents Day holiday, so traveled later today...and now we are all safely at home...refreshed...and ready to face the reality of work and school tomorrow.
I hope you all had a wonderful weekend.
