11th Wedding Anniversary Weekend!

We are coming to the close of an awesome "staycation" weekend to celebrate our 11th Wedding Anniversary.  The kids had an awesome time at the cabin with Grandpa and Grandma and we were able to have a kid-free weekend!

Warning:  You will see lots of self photos since we had no one with us to take pictures for us :)  They aren't the best quality but at least we will remember what we did!

Our weekend began on Friday around noon, we headed to Elk River to try a new to us wood-fire pizza restuarant!  It was very yummy and we will be going back soon!!!

We then decided to take a trip down memory lane and head to the church we got married in.  We took a quick picture in front of the church and did a little reminicing!


We then headed to the tennis courts to get some uninterrupted games in!  We usually have the kids with us when we play so it was fun to be able to actually get a game played!  A favorite past time of ours!!!

Next, we headed downtown Anoka for some good old fashioned ice cream at Two Scoops.  A chance to sit outside and do a little people watching while enjoying our treat....fabulous!

We headed home to change and get ready for our night out!  We went to a new movie theatre that has nice leather seats and tables that you can order food while watching the movie! Ooh la fancy!  We then had dinner at Rojo Mexican Grill after the movie.  I can't think of the last time we went to dinner at 10:00!  There is actually life happening past 7:00 PM...who would have thought it?  I guess we are just too busy being parents to realize it!  HA HA!

Saturday morning, we enjoyed sleeping in until WE woke up and no one was here to wake us!  It is really the little things in life that make us the most happy!  We did a little shopping then headed to the Roseville area to do a little more reminicing.  We went to Northwestern College....the place where it all began 15 years ago....lots of weddings happening but we were able to dodge the bride & groom and walk around campus enjoying the memories of all the awesome, sweet times we had there. 

We headed downtown to the Stone Arch Bridge area.  We did lots of exploring in that area before heading to the hotel to check-in.  We decided to stay downtown Saturday night for a little getaway.  We did some shopping, walking around, eating, enjoying the atmosphere of downtown and it was just the perfect getaway!  It's amazing what an uninterrupted conversation can do for your marriage!  You can actually talk a whole sentence!  Again, it's the little things in life!!!

Sunday morning, we headed over to Uptown to have breakfast.  The waiter insisted we try the giant donut so we caved.  It was delicious but seriously HUGE!

We couldn't leave the area without a little shopping!  Tony was ever so patient with me!  We drove over to Wisconsin to have lunch at Vino in the Valley.  It was absolutely beautiful and delicious Italian food.  Thanks to Living Social for the great deal on this awesome venue!

We got home late afternoon and after taking a nap, we decided to head out for a late dinner.  We enjoyed our weekend so much and I know the kids did too!  They came home exhuasted and both of them were asleep at 7:30PM tonight.  Lots of memories were made by all!  Thanks to Grandpa who sent some pics he took of the kids fishing this weekend!

I have a couple more photos from the zoo last week that Tony chaperoned to add at the end of this long post!  Thanks for sticking with me!
