A mix of photography, recipes, personal thoughts, faith, and lots of family stuff, but not necessarily in that order.

Quality time

We have a grown son who lives with his wife in St. Paul
It's about 1 hour and 20 minutes from our home.
Close enough to pop up there, if even for just a few hours.
This we consider a blessing!

I was kind of missing them this weekend, haven't seen them since Christmas
So I made a call (or was it a text) to see if they wanted to hang out.
Sunday was a good day for both of us so they made reservation at

It's and Italian Restaurant in Minneapolis that's famous for their 
authentic food with family-style dining
that means large portions that you share with everyone at the table.
Sooo  yummy !  Those meatballs were enormous

Garlic mashed potato's...to die for  )

 My boy and daughter-in-love
They are so comfortable in downtown Minneapolis
We just follow them  :)

I love spending time with my kids !


  1. Glad you had a good time!

  2. Looks like a good visit.

  3. Glad you got to go! I miss them!

  4. That was a lot of butter on those potatoes. I bet they were delish.

    I know that I am so lucky to live only 20 min. away from my mom and dad. I would miss them like crazy if they were so far away!

  5. i LOVe Buca...last time i was there i enjoyed a healthy helping of many different foods. I love the family style atmosphere they have there. just order a bunch of stuff and eat what you want. MMMM..glad you had a nice time with them!
