This little smilier pretty much sums up our weekend! It was filled with sunshine and fun!
The weather in Minneapolis has been amazing and we've enjoyed every minute of it! Friday I spent the entire day outside with the girls, walkng around the lake, playing in the park and even walking with the stroller to run errands. There is really nothing better than WALKING from place to place rather than driving!
Friday night Matthew and I enjoyed some sushi at Wakame followed by the movie 'Midnight Special' which was great! I am so happy to be able to eat as much sushi as I want again - oh how I don't miss being pregnant :)
Saturday was such a fun day! I got the girls into the car and headed over to St. Paul for brunch and to meet my good friend Jenna and her new dog Roo Roo. We sat outside and enjoyed the weather and the chance to eat with the dogs!
After brunch we headed back to Jenna's place and played around a bit. If you look closely at the photo above you will see that Roo has no arms. Jenna adopted him from Secondhand Hounds, a non-profit animal rescue center in Minnesota. They took Roo in after he was dropped off at a high kill center down south and arranged for his transportation (via volunteers) up to MN. I am so inspired by both Roo and Jenna. Roo has overcome the odds and is so strong and capable, and Jenna is doing such a beautiful thing by giving this sweet little girl so much love and affection and a new forever home!
Saturday night Matthew and I headed to Salsa a la Salsa for dinner and then stopped by my parents house for their annual wine party. It was a great time seeing so many family friends and people I rarely see! Plus, it's pretty rare that Matthew and I have an excuse to do dinner without the kids twice in one week :)
Sunday we woke up and headed to brunch as a family and then I spent the rest of the day outside with the girls! Jos had such a great time at the park! It's so much fun watching her explore and challenge herself more and more! She can seriously be quite the handful, but it's also so much fun having such an adventurous little girl!
After all the playing someone sure needed a bath!
I hope you all had a wonderful weekend and are enjoying this spring weather! What have you guys been doing enjoying this weather? I love hearing from you in the comments!
