A drive-in movie... ("Transformers" and "Super 8")
(A little pre-movie entertainment. That guy is on a little motorized chair with a propellor. We see him all over town in the summer!)
(Waiting for the sun to set...)
(It's a busy place...)
(Bailey got to come! She's happy as can be...)
(These little girls were as festive as can be! Lit up streamers coming off their headbands, fun red, white, and blue dresses - they were having the "best night ever!")
The "real" Fourth of July in Minneapolis...
(Watching "The Billy Johnson Roadshow" on St. Anthony Main.)
(A perfect day for lunch on Aster Cafe's patio!)
(The scenery's a little different from Hudson...)
(My buddy! I see this guy at least once a summer - always at a music festival, always wearing the same outfit, always smiling and dancing, happy as can be. My summer would not be complete if I didn't run into him somewhere...)
(Enjoying the skyline as we wait for fireworks - such a great day!)
A delicious new recipe...
(And a beautiful rainbow...)
A concert in Mears Park, St. Paul...
A morning at the MN Zoo with some of my favorite people (Em, Elly, and Sam)...
(Sam, my buddy.)
(We were mesmerized by the giant aquarium...)
(I believe Elly and I were watching the otters under water. Always entertaining!)
(What a great mom! Sacrificing a run through the sprinklers on a hot day!)
(That's Elly. She's a pretty darn cool kid.)
And two great nights at the Basillica Block Party...
(Night One - G Love and Special Sauce, and...
Fitz and the Tantrums, and...
Michael Franti and Spearhead! Best night of music I've been to in a long time! So fun!)

(Night Two - Amos Lee, and...
His special guest, "Angel" - hilarious! And...
Ray LaMontagne and the Pariah Dogs. Awesome night.)
It's been a great summer so far... and we're only half way!!!
