This weekend our friend George once again hosted a gathering at his photography studio to coincide with the Target fireworks show that concludes the local Aquatennial festival.Â We had a great time visiting with Mitzi, Barb, George, Bill and Julie, among others.Â We had a little fun teasing Bill’s friend (just ask who’s cuter) and then of course, had a great view of the fireworks show.
Thanks Stevie for taking the time to come and visit this weekend for my birthday.Â It was great to see you and to just hang out for a while.Â I can’t believe you’re headed back to France soon.Â I know you’re looking forward to being home.Â Please keep in touch!
The 1/2 marathon wet well despite the tough course — Lots of bridges to crosss back and forth over the Mississippi and a lot of steep hills. My finish time wasn’t too shabby, but next year will be better.
Otherwise, we FINALLY got around to staining the deck – I’m sure the neighbors are thrilled.Â It looks great – we’ll see how long a 5-yr deck stain lasts in MN.
