Mr.C & I spent this weekend with our friends Sarah & Brandon from Indiana. It had been 2 years since we last saw them and this was their first visit to the Twin Cities so we wanted to make it memorable!
Friday we cooked dinner, wandered around the Mall of America, ate delicious gelato, and then played games the rest of the evening… well, that is until a tornado warning chased us into the bathroom!
Saturday we made breakfast and set off to see the cities. First stop was Minneapolis and of course we popped over to the famous spoon and cherry.
Next stop was St. Paul and the Festa Italiana at Harriet Island.
It was quite warm that day so after our exploring we headed back home for a nap before dinner at the always delicious Mozza Mia. And after that? More card games of course! We’re fiends!
Sunday the boys had an appointment at Twilight Tattoo to finally get a little friendship ink. They’d been talking about it for ages! As big kids (and nerds for life), they opted for matching Ninja Turtle tattoos. Ryan got Michelangelo/Mikey and Brandon got Donatello. Ink by Bradley Trotter.
When they were finished, we dropped by Glam Doll Donuts for a little sugar before cooling off at Minnehaha Falls.
Next stop – dinner at The Nook! Everyone was jonesin’ for a Juicy Lucy and we were not disappointed. We also fell in love with their sweet potato fries and honey-bacon cheese curds.
Monday greeted us far too soon and we had to send our friends on their way home. So glad they were able to visit though! We had an absolutely wonderful time.
Hope you all had a good weekend too!
