Anniversary weekend!

This past weekend Rob and I spent Saturday kid-free to celebrate our anniversary (again). We started off the morning with a quick 9 holes of golf. I wasn't feelin' it, so I played a nice game of "Tracy golf". This involves about 3 mulligans per hole and a few good kicks or throws. It's a much more enjoyable game that way.

After golf we headed to the MOA for some shopping. Rob was in desperate need of new work shirts. He managed to find quite a few non-work items too. It's rare for Rob to go on a shopping spree (for clothes) so that was fun. We ate lunch at Twin Cities Grill, shopped a bit more and then headed downtown.

Downtown, we stayed at the Hyatt right on Nicollet. Great location. We were able to walk to our dinner and the show. We dined at Dakota Jazz club (meh.) and we saw "Mary Poppins" at the Orpheum. It was a great show.

Meanwhile, back at the ranch, our kids were busy entertaining Grandma and Grandpa. Sunday morning Grandma decided donuts were in order so Bob and Austin (in PJs--Austin that is) packed in the van and headed out to get the tasty treats. As Bob turned left to go towards Cub Foods, Austin told him, in true Austin (screaming) style I'm sure, that he was going the wrong way. Austin then gave him turn by turn directions to Donut Connection, Austin's preferred donut shop. Yes. My son knows the way from our house to Donut Connection. Furthermore, Austin was greeted by name when he walked in.

It was a very proud moment for me.
