Minneapolis weekend

My mom got Isaac a ticket to see Ed Sheeran in concert (for his birthday) and I was the lucky one to take him. So, we made a family weekend of it. 

We left Friday afternoon and took a pit stop at Minnesota's largest candy store. Then we went to Valley Fair for a couple of hours and rode rides and played games. We arrived right after a big storm so the park was really quiet and we were able to do all we wanted to do in a short amount of time... thankful for that!

Saturday morning we went to the mall for a couple of hours and then in the afternoon we all went to St Paul to hang out. We shopped around and checked out some stores. We ended up eating pizza and having some ice cream before Jeff dropped Isaac and I at the concert. 

We had a great time at the show. Ed Sheeran is so good. It was so much fun to take Isaac. He was clapping, singing, screaming, and just taking it all in. The place was packed. We had really good seats  so it was perfect that Isaac was able to see. There were 3 proposals during the concert. Crazy! 

Jeff and Anna went to the American Girl doll store while Isaac and I were at the concert. They had a great time, too. 

Sunday morning before we hit the road the kids went swimming at the hotel. They were really excited to be staying at the Embassy Suites. Anna requested the top floor so that's where we stayed. It was nice and quiet up there but it took forever to get the elevator. It's all good though, cause the kids loved it. 

It was a really fun weekend. Enjoy some pictures in random order. 

loving the top floor and ready to swim!
