The Linkert weekend

Our weekend started a bit early for the Maeve, Cecelia, and I as we found ourselves alone on Friday, and we headed to the Minnesota state capitol for near repeat visit we did 2 years ago.

Maeve and Cecelia at the Capitol in January 2007.

Now on to what happened the other day!

Photobucket

I parked as close as I could, as it was very cold. But it was still a bit of a walk.

Photobucket

The girls did great though, and were following directions really well.

Photobucket

Lots of steps to get up there.

Photobucket

The girls really impressed me with the way they handled the stairs, and the cold.

Photobucket

We're finally inside!

Photobucket

First to the rotunda.

Photobucket

"No Cecelia, you can't walk on the star."

Photobucket

More stairs inside.

Photobucket

Looking down on the rotunda. "No climbing Cecelia!"

Photobucket

Watching some meeting from the House galley. The building was very quiet, as the Governor's State of the State was the day before, and it was the Friday before the MLK Holiday. We really had the place to ourselves.

Photobucket

The girls had a lot of fun, and I really did. The state Capitol is a favorite place of mine, and I was so glad to take the girls there.

In the basement of the Capitol.

My favorite moment of the day, and so sorry I didn't get it on video. We sang "Ski-da-ra dink" as we waited for our cheeseburger. They were so cute I could've cried.

Photobucket

The meter was done, so we had to leave. Until next time!

Photobucket

Saturday night, we visited the Dales. Chris and I raced podracers in Legos Star Wars.

Photobucket

Cecelia prepares for Rock Band.

Photobucket

Maeve is too interested in playing percussion for my comfort...

Photobucket

I take my turn singing. (I rock)

Photobucket

Fortunately the Dales had plenty of toys to keep the kids busy.

Photobucket

Scott and Laura (newlyweds) sing Total Eclipse of the Heart.

Cecelia stikes a pose as Spiderman!

Photobucket

Sunday we had tickets to the Gopher women basketball game.

Photobucket

So the girls donned the Gopher cheerleader outfits. They were so cute of course, they ended up on the Jumbotron.

Photobucket

Friends watching the game.

Photobucket

Cecelia get's a little love from Gail.

Photobucket

We had a fun time! Oh, and the Gophers won.
