Highlight Reel July 16th-22nd July 23, 2011

Filed under: Life's Musings — Angie S. @ 10:18 pm

Saturday- we woke up in the air-conditioned comfort of the casino and decided to take off and have some fun before the air got too tropical.  We headed to Milaca to browse through the large unclaimed freight building they have there.  After Zach bought a cane pole and I bought a few cookbooks (my weakness) we traveled into the town to find a place fo lunch.  After eating at Hardees we headed back to the casino, stopping twice (once at the Rum River and once at Lake Shakopee) for Zach to try out his new cane pole.  Once we got back to the casino it was time to go swimming!  We cooled off in the pool playing football and relaxing in the hot tub.  We worked up quite an appetite so we headed to the buffet and I ate far too much.  Ugh!

Sunday- Not wanting to leave the comfort of the casino, we reluctantly packed up and headed for home where we wilted in the wetness of the stagnant afternoon air.

Monday-Wednesday- Hot! Hot! Hot! With hard to breathe humidity made these three days difficulty to function in.

Thursday- A break from the heat and humidity.  A truly beautiful day.

Friday-  Zach’s Boy Scout Patrol came over to do some swimming and afterwards we cooked some brats over the fire.  I had made some goulash that I had in the crock pot and Alvin brought along Schwann’s Chocolate Chip Cookie ice cream sandwiches for a treat.  The weather was perfect and the boys had a great time.  A nice end to the grueling week.
