[HELLO + WELCOME!]

fall in minnesota

In October, Eric and I went to Minnesota for two main reasons: to visit my brother and to see Neko Case in concert. We arrived on a Thursday, the night of the concert.  Eric, my brother, his friend, and I started out the evening by stopping at Element Pizza to pick up supper.  We then took the pizzas to Dangerous Man Brewing Co.  What a great find!  The Brewery doesn't serve food, so they encourage you to bring in food from other places.

We kind of lost track of time and before we knew it we needed to head over to First Avenue for the concert.  I've wanted to see Neko for a long time, so I'm glad I finally got the opportunity.  Also, it was nice to go to a venue other than the ones we normally attend in Wisconsin.

Friday morning we headed over to visit the farm my brother is living as well as helping out on.  There's a dog and turkeys and cows and cats and goats…and it's pretty much the best.

From the farm we drove over to the Carpenter Nature Center.  Minnesota still had some great color - mostly yellows and reds. It was a little chilly, but still a great day for a walk around the little nature trail.
