4. Owen is beginning his "Birthday Weekend" around here. Tonight he will have 2 friends walk home with him to spend the night. Then later we will order pizza ~ they will play ~ and we all will be going to Cherry Berry (FroYo) for the special birthday treat! Tomorrow is AM baseball stuff and a family outing to the Mall Of America where we will ride some rides, do some birthday shopping and let Owen pick HIS place for supper ... I hear the talk of Perkins already. ;-)
3. Hubs and Nicole are heading to the Hamline "Elite" Meet after Cherry Berry. (What a packed night...why does every thing always seem to happen on the same nights?) Hamline University is the college that hubbies brother Dave went to and is in the Athletic Hall of Fame in large part b/c of his records and accomplishments during his Cross Country running trek while there.
