What a day, what a day. It's been beautiful today. Last night a huge rain storm blew through. There was thunder, lightning, and TONS of rain. It only lasted 15 minutes or so, but I'll tell you what everything was fresh and clean today. There's nothing like a good rain storm. I went outside on the screened in porch and just watched. It was incredible. The wind was blowing so hard and the rain was coming down so fast after about 5 minutes I had to come back in the house. But that didn't stop me from finding the nearest window and watching in amazement.
Today the weather was sunny and warm. Ummmmm....I love Minnesota.
Mary Kay, my awesome mother-in-law, took Katie and me out to lunch this afternoon. We enjoyed a wonderful lunch on lake Waconia. We sat outside and took in all the vitamin D we could while sipping our daquiri's (virgin...of course!) and chatting. It was so fun we didn't realize we'd been "at lunch" for almost two and a half hours! It was so relaxing. There was a perfect cool breeze to keep us comfortable while eating outside on the deck, so we didn't over heat or get uncomfortable. Perfecto!
Chris, Timmy, and Travis go way back. They've been buddies for years. They came over for dinner tonight. It was a lot of fun to catch up with them. I mean, it'd been sooooo long since we last saw them. What, it's been like two days or somethin'?!! No, we always have a good time with the guys (and Jen, Tim's wife, of course!!) I love to sit and observe the three of them together. They have so much - yet so little in common. It's hilarious. Trav gave them each a print of his latest work of art. Isn't it cool?

Dessert was delicious as always. We were treated to strawberry shortcake. It was excellent. The Braun's never settle for mediocre. Everything is always perfect here - whether it be decor, food, or company. Seriously, it's all awesome.
