This weekend was a whirlwind of activities. I am still exhausted. It began with dinner at Tinucci's in Newport to celebrate the 55th anniversary of Julie's parents. Dinner was delicious and having dinner with the Roboles is a rare occasion so it was nice to catch up. Saturday began with swimming lessons for the kids which was followed by the Bloomington Heritage Day parade. It was a little long but was a nice parade. We were amazed to see people throw candy onto the blanket even though the kids weren't even sitting there. We had to even tell them NOT to add anymore to the pile!
I was able to convince Curious George for a quick photo
Our spot near the beginning of the parade
Yvonne!? What are you doing with all that candy!?
Sirens... and suckers
After the parade we ate a quick lunch and made our way to Applewood Orchard in Lakeville. We love this tradition and it was a quick visit. It realized that with both kids wanting to pick apples it was going to hurt my pocketbook in a hurry. We were only in the orchard for the tractor to go around once! It was such a beautiful day to be outside and the apples were very yummy.
And lastly, on Sunday Julie and I took my parents, my sister and brother in law to see Xanadu at the Chanhassen Dinner Theater. It is a spoof on the movie with Olivia Newton-John. I know I wasn't the only one at the table laughing. This was our Christmas outing from last year and this year, since we dropped the ball last year. I think everyone had a good time.
