The Week Leading up to the 4th of July

The Monday before 4th of July I won tickets to the Twins Game. We had the same awesome tickets I got last year right behind home plate. Unfortunately the game was horrible and we left before the seventh inning. The Twins were already losing 10-0 when we left and in the end they lost 15-0 to the Dodgers. This is the view on the way out.

That Wednesday the City of Plymouth hosts fireworks at the park near our house. It was a gorgeous night and we enjoyed the show.

On Friday night we met my family at El Toro in Shakopee for dinner. We missed the storms, but Luke was on his way back from Duluth and went through about 5 storms on the way down.

On Saturday, Patrick grilled up some bacon wrapped filet mignon for dinner. It was another perfect night for eating outside.

Our lack of plans turned into a great way to celebrate Independence Day. We ended up listening to NPR and eating Noodles in the park for lunch. In the afternoon we watched How the States Got Their Shapes on the History Channel. Then we walked to DQ for a Blizzard. When we got back we watched Black Swan, ordered pizza from Chanticlear and then headed to Delano for the fireworks. It was an amazing day of just being together.
