Sweet Summertime - Part 4: Minneapolis, MN

After the fabulous wedding of the Zink's, Ben and I made our way to Minneapolis to visit Jamie, Keith, the girls, and Andy.  Ben's parents were also there for a couple of days and we were able to enjoy their company as well.  We were amazed at how much Kara and Nina had grown in our year away.  Both girls are very active and we enjoyed getting to play with them.  

Thoughtful Kara

Silly sisters!
Fearless Nina

Silly sisters!
 Ben and I took a day to do a bit of a MN date.  We started our morning with a bit of Hazel's drunken banana French toast (absolutely, hands down, the greatest French toast EVER).  We stopped at a few shops by Hazel's before heading to downtown St. Paul to hit up our favorite used bookstore.  We stopped at a few other stores along the way and decided to head back to the house.

Mouth watering. . . 
Nap time. :)
While in MN we cooked a couple meals for everyone, one being an Arabic dish we learned how to make in Dubai.  Both went over very well.  Keith almost made his delicious Pad Thai one night which is always on my request list! Aside from yummy eats, we also enjoyed wonderful conversation and quality time with everyone.  

We look forward to our next trip!
