One of my friends asked me how Lutefisk Fest went.
Sons of Norway float – with Vikings! – at the opening parade.
It was a really great day, sunny, 70, and Cheri and mom were excellent company.
Sadie also accompanied us – not by design – but as we started walking to the shuttle bus she jumped the fence and ran out and across a busy road after us. Scared us silly! So as her punishment she got put on leash, taken downtown, and snarfed her way through the food court.
I missed the pancake breakfast, but had a superb grilled chicken florentine crepe instead. We enjoyed the parade, the waterfront and the people watching, but missed the fireworks.
Zach and his girlfriend and buddies stayed downtown until the carnival closed at 9, and then wandered back home. I love that 1) I live in a small town where that’s the norm, and 2) I have a great kid who I trust.
Then I got to do some company cooking – yeah, cooking! – and have another great sunny day with mom again today.
I did manage to miss the all-you-can-eat lutefisk session. Doggone it! Maybe next year.
How was your weekend?
