How was your weekend?

Hi everyone,

I hope that you all had a nice weekend.  Our weather has been nothing but cloudy and rainy.  It can be pretty depressing not to have the sun shining.   Still, we do what we can to not get down about it.

So, on Saturday when we heard about an Art Festival on Lake Minnetonka we decided to go check it out.

I loved walking around and checking out all the artisan's creations.  Think I may have gotten some inspiration because I've got an idea brewing for a new painting.  Stay tuned.

We also enjoyed some of the food from the tasty food trucks - delicious Steak Bites, Strawberry Rhubarb Struedel, Gyros, French Fries, Kettle Corn, and more.  Oh, how we have missed you, summer fair food.

It was a great day, and we lucked out.  It just started to sprinkle as we walked to our car.


Later, Saturday evening we decided to take in a movie at the Theater

The Internship - with Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson.  How could you go wrong with those two actors?  We all really enjoyed the movie.  I've always been a fan of Vince Vaughn, and was really surprised when I read the credits at the end, and found out he also wrote the story.  Damn, that guy is good!

Don't you think it's cool the way this group of guys, Vince Vaughn, Owen Wilson, Ben Stiller, Adam Sandler, and more always seem to help each other out by providing roles in each other's movies? I like that.

Sunday morning I made this for a breakfast treat.

Trader Joe's Coffee Cake.

My family gave it another thumbs up.
