Springtime in Minnesota


Springtime in Minnesota
Todd Swank's Diary Entry for March 29, 2015


Spring rolled in this week with a pleasant reminder that we live in Minnesota.  We had one of our largest snow storms of the year with more than 8 inches of snow landing in Prior Lake which filled our yard again.  We just love winter weather.


Sunny has been just dying to go swimming and has no hesitation about jumping in the water the second there's a hole big enough for him to fit.  I don't know how he does it without freezing to death, but he seems to be impervious to the cold.


We always love watching the unique birds that wander through our neighborhood and this big guy stood out to us.  I think he's a hawk, but I'm sure someone will point out that I'm wrong.  


On Friday night, we met up with our good friends Jason and Jen for a trip to Mystic Lake Casino.  We go there because we get tired of carrying around that heavy money all week and this place seems to be a good way to get rid of it.  They're nice that way.


On Friday nights they always have interesting dance competitions going on.  One of these days, I'm going up there again and I'm bringing Miss Sheri with me.  I just really want to see her dressed this way.


Luke hasn't been able to drive for the past couple of months since he received his pacemaker.  So now he's back on the road and I'm sure the cops will be back in our lives again soon.


On Saturday night, our good friends, Jen and Dan, came over so we could play dress-up games.  We like to wear the same clothes.


Then we go and take a bath and start over again.  Some people might think it's a weird game, but we like it.


On Sunday, Miss Sheri's Aunt Mary and Cousin Mary were in town so we met them at Fuddruckers for lunch.  Mmmmm.  Fuddruckers.
