But also this thing...
That's right, it's a specimen cup.
How would you like that job?
Owen just loves
candy parades. He got extra excited when he saw a Star Wars float coming down the road.
When the parade ended at 1, the grandparents took Reese with them for the rest of the day and Daddy, Owen and I headed to Excelsior to celebrate our niece's high school graduation. There, we transferred Owen over to the cousins for the rest of the day and night, Mike and I changed and headed to Minneapolis for a wedding at 3. The reception was in St. Paul at a Chinese restaurant (both groom and bride are Chinese) for a 12 coarse meal..... but we couldn't help swinging into our favorite ice cream joint on the way.
The meal was not at all what we expected...not Americanized at all. To name a few things we ate...shark fin soup, sea cucumber, and oh yes, geo duck (pronounced gooey). When Mike and I saw this on the menu, we knew it wasn't a fowl of any kind, we've watched Bizarre Foods with Andrew Zimmer one too many times. Needless to say, we didn't eat much, thank goodness for ice cream!
