Saturday night Grampa and Gramma came and got both kids and took them home with them. It was kind of a last minute thing but everything worked out. And what did we parents do?

Went out separate ways.

Matt took off to our friends cabin also known as "The Shack" with some of the guys and from what I hear they just hung out and played poker...there could also have been some drinking and smoking cigars going on too. They haven't had a boys night in awhile so it was much needed.

While Matt was up in the middle of nowhere I went down town Minneapolis for a going away party. There was 16 of us and we went on a Pedal Pub. Has anyone in the area ever heard of this? It was one of the funnest things ever.

Basically it is this big cart looking thing with bike seats around the outside and you seriously pedal it. There is a driver in the front who steers and everyone else pedals the thing to make it go. At first I thought it was some kind of joke and the driver would eventually turn it on and we could stop pedaling. Nope. No joke. It was a blast though! It was nice because you can bring coolers with your own drinks and food and pretty much whatever you want and then you "bike" around town. They have different routes but you basically get to pick where you want to go as long as your back within the time period you paid for. There were routes through some of the downtown parks and routes past popular bars where you can get off and on as you please. It was such a good time! If your in the area I would absolutely recommend it. They said they get a lot of birthday parties, bachelor/bachelorette parties, work events, tailgaters and just people who want to do something different. Way cool!

Oh. My. Goodness. That is such a crazy idea! I am sure I would get on it and get drunk then fall off. I mean, I haven't gotten drunk in 5 years, but that thing just might inspire me!

God bless-
