Anddd that's a wrap...

We had an awesome weekend! Friday was a day off for us as we traveled to Northfield to a farm. :) We went here with the Student Ambassadors from Concordia. It was a lovely time.

Sparkler Picture... proud of this one :)

Saturday was spent with them as well. We enjoyed yummy food, bonding activities, and learning about what it means to actually SERVE as Student Ambassadors.


The WHOLE group in front of Barn

We got home saturday night and got ready to spend some time with Laura and Tyler (Josh's youngest sister and her bf). We had a lovely time in Uptown and half off apps at the Bee's. Yum!


Sunday was a beautifully crisp day in Minneapolis. It felt almost like fall, and I actually really loved it! Church was amazing and a lot of cool things are happening!! After church I had a photo session with our family, The Thurston's (Greg, Cheryll, Zeke & Kiera). It was lovely! Laura got a new camera (dSLR) this weekend too and she came along to practice and check it out. It was fun to have her along!

Then we spent the evening with family friends and had a "DUMP" dinner. It was VERY wonderful and QUITE interesting! You boil a bunch of veggies, chicken, sausage, shrimp, potatoes.... and then DUMP it out on the table. Everyone grabs the food to eat with their fingers. It was SO fun!!!!

Check it out!!

Weekends... I love thee. Here's to another week. The last one before we start Fall Classes. SO sad. We will try to embrace it for all it's worth!! How were YOUR weekends? Do share!
