On Thursday, Tom and I celebrated the 4th of July at his aunt's house where we ate good food and played volleyball and croquet all afternoon in the sunshine. We enjoyed fireworks at my brother and sister-in-law's house in Coon Rapids which were very impressive!
On Friday, I got to hang out with my niece Sophia who is just over a month old. She is the sweetest!
Tom dropped us off at the Outlet mall so we could check out some sales, then we walked a little over 2 miles home, freshened up, and headed out to dinner at the River Inn. We ordered a cheeseburger and buffalo chicken wrap and split them. Then we enjoyed Dairy Queen on the way home...no shame:) Tom surprised us with a scary movie, The Call, and some candy to enjoy with it. The movie was good and the Sour Patch Kids were excellent:) Saturday morning, we went to spin class (Jen joined us too!) to start our day off right. After Jenna went home, Tom and I drove down to Edina to go to my brother Patrick's house warming party. We got to see my uncle Steve, Beth, and my parents, who were in the metro to celebrate their 40th wedding anniversary!
Tom and I scooted back home to get ready for our friend Jen's birthday dinner at Redstone that night. We had a great time with Jen, Roger, Nick, and April. I had a delicious Asian chopped salad that I forgot to take a picture of, along with a yummy martini called a Stoli Doli. Jen and Roger ended up coming over after to watch another scary movie, the Possession. I do not do well with scary movies and had my head in the blanket for much of the movie.
