After a wonderful night sleeping out underneath the stars, we woke up to egg mcmuffins--camping style--courtesy of Sarge and Rocco. Top notch! Then we slowly packed up before heading out around 2 or so. Matthew had a great time and I really enjoyed reconnecting with my camping roots. We're already planning trip #2 later this summer.
Then, Saturday, Julius (Angela's dad) and Julian (Angela's brother) drove up from Peoria to hang out with the family. We missed them Sat. night as we had dinner plans with the Martins at Loring Pasta Bar (which was fantastic--we will be back!), but we ventured out to brunch this morning at Town Talk Diner for a great breakfast with the group. Matthew had "pookies" and we had some great hash, eggs and bloody marys. We capped off the weekend with a trip to our local pool--Amy was walking non-stop around the pool. She's really starting to like the water. We will probably enroll her in swimming lessons this summer and hope to take her to the Eagan or Richfield water park later this summer.
