The Weekend

The wife went to Florida with her mom, dad, sister, niece and nephew to have some fun in the sun. They also went to Disney World. Me? Well, I decided to stay here. I've been to Disney World in the past 1.5 years (our honeymoon) and it's still "right there" in my mind. Maybe in another year or two I'll be ready to hang out with the mouse & the duck. ;)

I spent the weekend hanging out with friends, mostly. Friday night I stayed in. On Saturday, Kurt and I watched the Harry Potter & The Goblet of Fire. Saturday night I went to an old haunt (Moose Country) for dinner with friends and to catch up with Diane, a college friend/ex-roomie who had come up for Renae's baby shower. Kurt and Julie, their daughter Abbie, Todd and Renae, myself, and Diane had a great time watching Abbie as she dipped her fingers in Ranch dressing.

Kurt & Julie had to put Abbie to bed, so the rest of us opted to rent a movie (300) and watch it on Todd & Renae's new huge flat-panel television. Way-cool...now I want one. =) On the way there, I gave Diane a tour of downtown Minneapolis. She took a lot of pictures by sticking her camera out of the sunroof (like the one in this post). We also
drove by the infamous bridge that collapsed on 35W. You can get pretty close by driving down University on the north side of the river. The whole thing is still pretty eerie, maybe I'll go back when it's light out.

I surprised the heck out of Nate by showing up at his bar on the way home from the movie. I like doing that, it keeps him guessing. *evil grin*

Being evil is always fun. The bridge is very eerie. You can see it from my work. Or at least the lack of it. They are opening the stone arch bridge back up. S and I are going to go check it out.

Musta been weird seeing the bridge. Must have been worse being ON the bridge, mind.
