What's Hap-"Pinning"? Wednesday {#12}

It's Wednesday already? I guess that's what happens when you're gone through late Monday night and hop right into the week.

Let's talk about what's hap-"pinning" around these parts! Remember, you can talk about anything going on--it doesn't have to relate to Pinterest--grab our button and link up!
I'm gonna recap my weekend again this week since I was gone through Monday and didn't get a chance to share.
My weekend Minnesota hap-"pinning"s included:

~Saturday afternoon arrival

~getting to see our 2 friends for the first time, in person, since their engagement; and lots of talk about their wedding plans!

~an afternoon at a super fun, fully decked out Fall "festival" of sorts (Severs, if anyone is in the area), with a corn pit (so fun for us and the kids!), a huge slide, corn mazes, pumpkin chuckers, and some of the best Fall fair foods (deep fried cheese curds---oh my word--apple cider, and donuts!)
~Family style dinner with the 6 adults at home, while the three adorable kiddos were sleeping

~a late night hilarious game that included a cup and no hands...you had to be there 

~talking and laughing until late

~up early to the pitter patter of little feet

~morning playtime with the kids
~off to the Vikings game
his "vikings face" haha
~field passes for before the game
they are SO BIG!

~a Vikings win, including a touchdown from one of our friend's players!
~Tailgating in the players/coaches parking lot afterwards--and getting to meet some of them!
~celebrated a Vikings victory and our friend's birthday

~got to spend Monday morning with a walk to the park in 74 degree weather (it was seriously warmer in MN than it was back in VA) with the two littles who didn't have school

~a last lunch together followed by the cutest car ride to the airport

We always have such a good time when we're together--it's a shame that we don't all live closer so we could do it more often. MG and I were laughing that when we were in our early 20's, we never thought a really fun weekend would have involved 3 kids, but it really was perfect. 

These quotes totally remind me of how awesome it is to have great people in your life:

  5. Looks like an awesome weekend for sure. I too would love to go down that slide and the Vikings' win is always a good thing! Loved your son's Vikings face. I bet it was hard to leave the precious cargo behind at the airport - she's a living doll. ;)

  11. It looks like y'all had the best time, and that's so awesome that you had field passes and got to tailgate with some of the players and coaches afterwards. That's crazy that it was warmer in Minnesota than in Virginia! You would think that there might already be snow in Minnesota.

  16. Looks like so much fun! So cool that you were able to be on the field. It was colder in South Carolina than where we were in New York this weekend too. Silly how that happens sometimes.

  19. So much fun! I'm glad you had a good visit and now I'm sad I didn't do anything fall-ish even though I haven't cared up until now. I don't have that much time on upcoming weekends so I'll live vicariously!
