Innies vs outies

After leaving Duluth, we headed back to St. Paul. Once we arrived, we were hungry… again.

We parked and made our way to Great Waters Brewing Company. Are you seeing a trend?

We ordered a few appetizers.

We ordered the Black and Brew Pate. It was Black Bean Pate and Hummus (I LOVE HUMMUS!!) It was simple yet tasty. Huck was licking the plate.

We ordered the Bac-N-Beer Nuts. These were AMAZING! Really, Bacon, Beer, and Hot Spices… How can you go wrong?

And the Rasta Wings. SUPER spicy wings with a Dijon Mango Sauce. They were not lying when they said SUPER spicy!

Everyone agreed the beer was less than impressive. I struggled to finish mine.

After dinner, we went to Rice Park.

Huck’s butt was cold!

Once we finished walking around the park, we headed to Buck Hill to do some Snow Tubing.

We were like little kids running around. Our passes were good from 9-10PM, so our goal was to ride as many times as we could. Luckily, there wasn’t a line. We raced guys vs girls a few times. The girls won 2 out of 3 times! Innies WIN!!

After tubing, we went to fly a kite!

These pictures were taken at night. My camera is awesome!

After flying the kite, we went back to Chris and Lisa. I used some of the leftover fish to make Fish Taco. It was about 1230 when we had dinner, so I forgot to take a pictures.

I was going to try and finish my MN post, today, but it is just to long. I’ll be back tomorrow with my last one. Promise.

HAPPY VALENTINES DAY

 

Chicken Noodle Soup with heart shaped carrots text

Yes, my lunch was a little cheesy! But cute!! I got the idea for the carrots from Sophistimom. Mine didn’t look as nice.

I’m embarrassed to admit this, but I like Campbell’s Chicken Noodle. Sodium in a can! This is my Campbell’s knock off! The appearance of Campbell’s without all the sodium!

I hope everyone enjoys their V-Day. I woke up to a nice surprise!
