MPLS with Suz

Suzie and I scheduled a weekend to Mpls months in advance because it is just that hard to find a weekend that works for both of us and our family schedules. So days/weeks leading up to the big weekend we get excited/nervous (just in case something comes up to prevent our plans).

This time we took Jeff's truck in anticipation of Suzie finding some outdoor furniture. We also got smart and decided to leave a day early so we wouldn't like we were going to run out of time- which has been the case in the passed. 

We left Thursday afternoon and arrived just in time for 5pm traffic- all was fine. We hit a couple spots and went to dinner before checking into our hotel and getting a good nights sleep. 

On Friday morning we made a point to take a big walk before we hit the shops. We walked around Lake Harriet near Suzie's old home when she lived there. It was a fun and brisk and a great way to start our day. We hit the shops and shopped until we dropped. We had dinner reservations at the mall at 9pm and then we started drinking a little wine and had way too much fun with Snapchat. It was pretty hilarious. I am proud to report that we walked over 20,000 steps on Friday. 

On Saturday we met Suzie's friend, Leanne and she joined us for the day. We had lunch, shopped, vegged, dinner... the day went by too fast. 

Sunday we woke up and made a couple returns before hitting the road to come home. 

It was so much fun and so needed. The last time we were in the cities together was over 2 years ago. We really try to go once a year but life got busy for a while. We had plans but things came up to force us to cancel. 

Thanks sis, for the wonderful weekend!
