Todd Swank's Diary Entry for June 28, 2015


Miss Sheri and the boys spent their week at a Robotics summer camp hosted by KING TeC for elementary school students.


Luke helped mentor a team in partnership with his friend, Aleks.  Their team was named Crazee Fries.


Avery ended up being a mentor for a team on his own and their name was the Hot Dog Stealing Squirrels.  There appeared to be a lot of food themed team names this year.


The Crazee Fries ended up winning the tournament out of 14 teams.  Now everyone knows why they should "Fear the Fry"!


On Friday night, we hooked up with the Browns and the Zitzewitzes for dinner and a comedy show.  We ate at the Artisan Bistro in Prior Lake.  I really liked their bacon wrapped steak bites and mashed potatoes.  Mmmmm.  Bacon Wrapped Steak Bites!


We went to Mystic Lake Casino for the comedy show.  The opening act was a guy named Vic Henley.  He's from Alabama and does a lot of southern themed humor.  He was pretty funny.


Ron White was the headliner and was really raunchy.  If you've ever seen any of the Blue Collar Comedy Tour, you can probably guess how the night went for us.  White was absolutely hilarious telling stories from his life including a crazy episode where he did a comedy performance on Dr. Phil's yacht while he was absolutely hammered.  Good stuff!


On Saturday, we stopped by Dan Patch Days in Savage, Minnesota to visit the food trucks and see what else was going on.  We used to live nearby this festival and would look forward to attending it every year.


Beyond the food trucks, there wasn't much for us to do other than play on the inflatables.  I remember when my boys used to love doing that!  But when I asked them if they wanted to do it this year, they weren't at all interested.  When did that happen?
