What a Weekend!

Last weekend (& all last week as well) was HHH... Hot, Humid & Hazy!  It didn't keep us from having a busy & fun weekend though!  We started out with a Friday evening happy hour at our new found favorite happy hour spot near our downtown place... Lyndale Tap House.  Great happy hour specials & great beer... can't beat that!  Then Saturday we hit the Loring Park Art Fair...
... it was hot, but we enjoyed walking around for a bit.

Then we were off to our old house for a housewarming party for the new owners.  The kids had a ball playing in their old yard & we enjoyed visiting with some old neighbors as well as the new residents & their family!
They had a pig roast, which was phenomenal!  

Jeff & Anna are a wonderful couple... it is fun to see what they are doing with our old place & how much they are enjoying it so far!
After the housewarming, we were off to Lake Calhoun for a "movie in the park"... Top Gun. Brandon was excited to see fighter planes!
They have a cool inflatable screen that is used & the sound system is amazing... we've taken in several movies in the park this summer... did we mention they are free?!
It was a hazy night looking across Lake Calhoun towards downtown, but thankfully it cooled off a little as the sun went down.
Our friend Bob & Bing joined us too... along with Bob's dad.

Sunday was hot from the start... but not hot enough from keeping us from walking around the Uptown Art Fair for a few hours.

After the Art Fair, we loaded up the canoe & headed to Minnehaha Creek... we were wanting to canoe that before heading out of the city for good!
It was a good day to be in the water...

... the creek was not too high in most parts, in fact, there were many parts we had to "walk" the canoe through because of low water & rocks. The kids just liked that they could walk along side the canoe for periods of time!

At the tail end of our adventure, we came across this obstruction...
... we had to lift the canoe up & over some of the debris & through a  small opening under the tree!
It was quite an adventure... not sure where they are hiding all the water from the rain we've had, but 1 -2 more inches in some spots would have been a little easier on the bottom of our canoe!
