MInnesota Time

Since I was home for close to two weeks, we tried to have a little fun. Even if the circumstances were not the greatest it was still nice to be able to go home and see my family. So here is a few things we did while I was home.

After my mom's funeral, we went over to my Aunt's house to swim in her in-ground pool. We have always gone swimming there growing up and my mom loved to hang out in the sun so it was to honor her. Most of my mom's family was still in town so they joined us at the pool. It was a nice way to forget the events of the day.

My nephew is so adorable. Such a little ham. I am glad that I got to spend a lot of time with him. He has grown into such a big kid with a huge personality. I am glad I was able to see how big he has gotten.

Here is a video of his cuteness.

We also went to a place called Sky Zone which was an indoor trampoline park. We jumped for an hour and it was seriously so much fun. I was not sure it would be at first, but it was awesome. And an added bonus was that we found a Groupon for it so it was half price. Perfect.

I then went with my friend Sammi, her husband and some of their family to a Middle Eastern Festival. It was at a church and they had music and food. I had to try food outside my comfort zone, but it was pretty good so I can't complain. I ate a cheese flat-bread so nothing fancy, but I still enjoyed it. Then we went into Minneapolis to watch the fireworks from the Aquatennial festival. We picked a park along the river to watch the fireworks- or at least where we thought we could watch the fireworks. Then when the fireworks started we could not see anything. So we got in the car and drove to where we could see them and watched from there.

I also was able to hang out with some friends. I had lunch with my friend Tiffany and coffee with my friend Heather. And like usual I forgot to take pictures. It was nice to see them and catch up with both of them.

One of the nights I was at my sister's house, we got bored and decided to go for a walk around the lake near their house. I had never been on that trail, but it was super nice. One of the things I definitely miss about Minnesota-bike trails.

So it was a long two weeks. We had a lot of work to do and still have a lot more to figure out. But we tried to make the most of the time we had together. There was so much more that we did on this trip but these are pretty much the highlights and also the things I actually took pictures of.
