We left mid-morning on Saturday, stopped in Mason City for lunch and arrived in Minneapolis with about 45 minutes to spare before our first stop - a couple's massage. So nice to start the weekend relaxed. After that we checked into our hotel so I could pump and we could get ready to go to the Twins game that evening. They were playing the White Sox and both teams had home runs in the first inning! It was a REALLY long game, so we left early for dinner at The Local. Mike had "the best Reuben he had ever had" and helped me finish my giant plate of fish and chips - which he said made him regret his Reuben. Clearly one of the best food recommendations we've gotten - thanks Nic and Kassia!
Sunday we slept in, attempted to navigate the incredibly full hotel breakfast area (nearly joining a family reunion on accident) and played a couple rounds of Dominion. After a quick lunch, we headed to the Minnesota Zoo. The weather could not have been better, warm and overcast, with just enough chance of rain to scare away some of the young families. We had a great time walking at an adult pace and I only teared up at the baby snow monkeys once. After the zoo we headed to the Mall of America to eat at Bubba Gump Shrimp Shop, since neither of us had ever had it.
Making me miss my baby...
...and then not so much. Sometimes I'm thankful to EP!
