Friday morning I headed to Kickass Cousin's house so that we could spend the day together. We went to one of the lakes in Minneapolis & decided that we wanted to go pedal boating. We were hilariously horrible at it. Afterwards we got seafood tacos & the finished walking around the lake. We already had plans to meet up with Music Soulmate that night for a concert but had more time to kill so we went to a different park & checked out the Mill City Ruins. We also got ice cream & without even discussing what we wanted before ordering got the exact same flavors but in opposite order. I got salted caramel with a baby scoop of mint chocolate chip & she got mint chocolate chip with a baby scoop of salted caramel because related. It was finally time to head off to the concert. We saw Maiden Dixie, Brian Collins Band, & Love and Theft. I had seen Maiden Dixie before & I really like them. Brian Collins was definitely my favorite though. Love & Theft annoyed me honestly. I like their music but they played mostly covers, were charging $40 for meet and greets when they are not nearly famous enough to be doing so in a small unsold out venue, & other annoying things. Overall the concert was fun & it was a great day. After the show Kickass Cousin, Music Soulmate, & I went out to breakfast where I felt incredibly old being surrounded by essentially nothing but teenagers & wondering why the hell they were out so late.
Saturday morning I left Kickass Cousin's house & headed home. My dad got to come home last minute for father's day weekend (he does bridge construction & is working on a project out of state.) Despite being incredibly tired, because I'm too old to be out until 2 in the flippin morning & wake up 5-6 hours later, I spent much of the day lawn mower shopping with my parents. That night we grilled steak & sweet potatoes for supper & I made peach cobbler for dessert.
Because it's summer we apparently grill all the time...as we should. I spent the morning with my family & then headed to Kickass Cousin's house once again. I was in search of a shirt that I had seen a girl wearing when we were out & about on Friday & I needed to have it. So we went shopping (didn't find it there & wound up ordering it online...in a size that probably won't fit me but it's all that was left & I had to try...) & then went out for a late lunch of unlimited soup, salad, & bread sticks at Olive Garden. After lunch I dropped her off & headed back home. We had grilled chicken for supper along with green beans & baby red potatoes. For dessert my mom made strawberry rhubarb crisp. We ended the night by watching The Gambler with Marky Mark.
