This past weekend was glorious!
A lot of relaxing, a bit of celebrating, grilling out, sun and lots of togetherness with friends and family!
Here are a few highlights from the holiday weekend!
Wednesday evening Derek and I walked the mile and a half to St Anthony Main!
Where we enjoyed a bottle of wine, and an amazing dessert (a brownie sundae) at Wild Roast Cafe. We must have gotten to the restaurant right at the perfect time - we didn't even have to wait for a table outside! The weather was beautiful and the view amazing!
Thursday (Happy 4th) Derek and I woke up fairly early and hit the gym! A few hours later we had a picnic packed and bikes in the car! We were off to meet my friend Bri for a day of bike riding around the beautiful Minnesota lakes!
We ended up riding about 15 miles around Lake Harriet, Lake Calhoun and Lake of the Isles!
The weather was perfect and the lakes were buzzing with 4th of July activity!
We met up with Derek's cousin Nate and friends around Lake Harriet - Nate and his friends were spending the day biking to each beach in Minneapolis and jumping in the lake at each stop!
Once they had all splashed around in Lake Calhoun we ended up heading to Urban Eatery for a few drinks before Derek and I headed home to get ready for Nate's cookout!
I told you in this post that the 4th just isn't the 4th without a cook out! Pre fireworks we grilled out at Nate's enjoying where we sat on his back porch enjoying the beautiful evening!
After dinner all of us wandered down the 2 blocks to Lake Calhoun to watch the fireworks over the lake!
Friday I unfortunately had to work but after a quick 5 hours and a little packing Derek and I were off to his aunt and uncles lake house! Derek and I spent the rest of the weekend relaxing with his family, soaking up the sun, and water skiing! It was a great way to end the weekend!
Now its back to work - but only for a few days stay tuned Derek and I are off on a road trip adventure!
