birthday dinner

tara and i drove to minnesota for the weekend to visit my cousins shannan and john. i hadn’t seen them since christmass 2007 so it was great to be together.  we enjoyed lekker meals, drank coffee, went on a few walks, saw a good movie (pelham 123 – i would recommend it), did a little shopping (REI!), survived a nearby tornado, ate ice-cream, chatted, and more. tara and john share the same birthday – august 8th. it was a nice weekend. i was also able to see my friends ashley and dustin for a bit. overall this has been a great summer for seeing lots of family and friends. a few pics from the weekend…
