I say this every year...I am so glad that I have a job that has a definite start and definite finish. After a successful kindergarten graduation, I jetted off to the midwest to meet Tim in Minneapolis for his birthday. Tim had been in Iowa for two weeks working on a research project so it was great to see him. Although I had envisioned a warm June day where we could spend the day downtown and walk to a great restaurant from the hotel, it was cold and very rainy. We walked to the restaurant anyway. We ate shepard's pie and beef roast at The Local. It was delicious and the perfect meal for a cold night.
After a cold night in Minneapolis, we drove to Grand Forks to spend some time with the family. Of course, I had to spend as much time with my cute nephew, Caeden. It has been a month and a half since I have seen him and he has changed so much. He is kicking and cooing and all the things that are so special when babies are three months old!
Tomorrow, I will drive to Avon, Minnesota to see my friend Sara and her boys, Sam and Lucas. After that, it is Iowa and the rest of the summer. We are spending two months in Iowa so Tim can continue his research project. I am not quite sure how I will spend my summer. I'll do my best to keep you posted.
