Finally I did It all while on Vacation!

Did you read Part 1 & Part 2...
it might help you understand part 3. 

The week in Minnesota was a lot of fun.
Partying, drinking way too much, staying up late, getting up early. 

Monday night after the aquarium...
we headed to Dave & Busters since our Iowa people 

have NO idea how awesome it is... 

but it just wouldn't be vacation unless 

there is a speeding ticket & 3 seat belt tickets involved.
Now we can get our party on at Dave & Busters.  

Tuesday I spent it shopping :)))) 
Wednesday... it all came crashing down...

This is why we started the morning with some yummy Starbucks. 

but we couldn't just end at Starbucks 

had to get our breakfast of Champions. 

Nothing some sunglasses & a sweatshirt can't hide!! 

Mom insisted we head to a buffet!! 

Her 18th Birthday present... Michael Kors purse! 

E loves his Auntie Cy. 

&& that is how California does Minnesota.
