What a weekend! Fun with friends that we don’t get to see much from Moorhead! But first, we must re-cap the exciting events of the week.
Tuesday we played Bingo in Brooklyn Park. It was a lot of fun and cheap entertainment at $5 for the entire night! Nice! To make it even better, I BINGOed! It was only for $10 at the concession area because other people won with me but it is still a win!
Thursday we went to The Paint Pot in Plymouth. It is just like Clay Your Way in Fargo. We both picked out items and Nick finished his that night. I, being the picky perfectionist, am still working on my project. I am going in to finish it tomorrow because it is supposed to be a rainy day. After we got home we decided it was time for some exercise. We checked the weather, so we didn’t run into another hail storm, and headed out on the bikes with a trip around Medicine Lake planned. Wow, didn’t realize it was a 12 mile trip! Nick and I both decided we did not like hills, at least the upside. Needless to say we were quite beat by the time we got home.
Saturday we woke up and did some cleaning before loading the bikes behind my car and heading off the Minnehaha Falls. It was a beautiful day and we biked around 5 miles and really took in the beauty. We saw the first lock and dam system on the Mississippi and watched a couple of boats go through. Pretty cool. The falls were gorgeous but we decided next time we were going to leave the bikes at home and hike around on foot to really go around the trails surrounding the river. There are a lot of trails along the river and even a small swimming area in the rapids! I can’t wait to go back! Oh yeah, how could I forget, we also biked over to a Dairy Queen that was nearby the park and I enjoyed a cone while Nick had a cherry slushy. We packed up the bikes again and headed for home to meet Tim at our apartment. We all watched a movie before going our seperate ways. Nick and I met Lindsay, Madi, and Rich at Maple Grove Days and walked around the blowup games. Madi, Rich and I even went on the bungee run and had a pretty good time. It was getting dark and there was fireworks on the agena so we walked over to the lake where they were going to be shot off at. Wow, awesome show! We were so close they practically filled the sky! The grand finale was so great Nick and I both commented that we could feel it pounding in our chests! Nice! After the show we met up with James and Sheena and headed over to Kyles place to sit on the deck before relocating to Perkins due to the rain. We made plans to meet for a fun filled Sunday afternoon at Valleyfair before saying our goodbyes and heading for home.
Sunday was awesome! Nick and I went to Valleyfair with James, Sheena, Lindsay and Rich. The lines were really short so we got the most out of the day! Right before we left I remembered that Rip Cord was having a sale for $10 a person to ride. I convinced James to go and we headed off to sign up to fly! Right when we were getting ready to be fitted for the harnesses, Rich decided he wanted to go to so he got in with us. I wish someone would have had a camera to capture the event but it was great! I got to pull the cord and wow! After the events we were all pretty tired so James and Sheena dropped us off and they headed to Sheenas place to take a nap before they came over later that night to watch a movie.
All in all a pretty great weekend. This week I am trying to be patient in waiting for the call-back from GfK. Please cross your fingers! We are heading home this weekend for the summer Extravaganza and to possibly see my Dad at Pelican. We also may be picking up a hitchhiker for the way home and if we do, it will be nice company! That’s all for now!
