Scott and I went to a Labor Day Weekend gathering at my friend, Nicole's home. Her son Jackson is the sweetest boy I've ever known. Warming up to me took about 1 minute and then next thing I know he's giving me hugs and a kiss on the cheek (without prompting from Nicole). He's a charmer!

Jill Reiley, Steve Seal & Dara Moskowitz Grumdahl were live at the Minnesota State Fair and discussing food pairing with local beers. Nice chop, Steve!

While sitting at the bar at Pizzeria Lola, I spotted this amazing looking bowl of olives, red peppers, basil leaves and other yummy goodness.

Scott and I are recovering from a drumstick-a-day addiction. Stewie always appears anytime he hears us opening up the wrapper.

Ahhhh! Slightly out of focus because it was too dark. I need to get home sooner for my Armatage 365 photo days!

Scott and I went on a Minnesota Historical Society (MHS) event called Washington Avenue- History Pub Crawl which involved riding a trolley-like bus around Washington Avenue while a MHS employee shared historical stories with us. We made two stops for adult beverages - Stone Arch Bar inside of The Depot and The Loop in the North Loop neighborhood.

Scott and I both took the day off of work since he had spent the previous week working 12-hour overnight shifts in Chicago. It was a beautiful day and this was taken on our evening dog walk which took us by Susan B. Anthony school. They must have done sidewalk chalk art as part of their first day back to school.

While sipping on sangria at el Meson in the CARAG neighborhood of Minneapolis, a couple, Dan and Katy, and their Chihuahua, Vianka, sat next to us. It was great meeting them and Dan told me about a performing arts group I hadn't heard of before, Rhythmic Circus. He is a musician and travels internationally with them.

Scott and I spent part of our Saturday morning at the Midtown Farmers Market. They had a hula hooping contest for little kids which turned out to be a great photo opportunity. This young hula hooper was rocking it during the practice round. Unfortunately, her hoop touched the ground pretty early on in the actual competition. After trying to shrug it off, her emotions took over and she covered her face as she cried. It took quite a while for her mom and the leader of the contest to console her. It was pretty heartbreaking to watch.
I attempted my first 365 photo project in 2011. I made it to Day 246.
