Brandon and I had a wonderful trip to Minnesota this past weekend. I think we brought some warm Texas weather with us because is was actually 50 degrees one day while we were there! The other days...not so warm but I survived. It was great seeing everyone again and hearing what everyone has been up to these days.

I did manage to swim once and run 30 minutes (27:40 to be exact) while in Minnesota but that was it. The rest of the weekend was spent catching up with friends, bowling, eating great food, and ofcourse games! As usual when we all get together, we stayed up WAY to late every night. I think it will take about a week or so to get back on my normal sleep schedule.

I posted some pictures below...enjoy!

The famous Mall of America. I lived in Minneapolis for 5 years and I don't think I have ever been around the whole mall. It's quite large.

Another view of all the rides at the MOA.

Lego Land at MOA. We were actually at the mall for awhile because we were waiting for the Finanger's flight to land. However, we weren't there long enough to see the whole mall. Maybe one of these days!

Terri's wonderful parallel parking job on our way to get some hot chocolate.

Emily, me and Brandon watching the swim meet that was going on.

The 1999 Big Ten Championship Team being introduced.

Baby Clare and the old crew...Jenny, Me, Terri and Emily. Only wish Beth could have been there but is living in France for the next 6 months.

I love the picture of all of you at the end. I so wish i could have been there. But next year for sure.
Glad you thawed out and hope you got back on your sleep schedule. I know how the feud keeps all of us awake....
