Duluth, MN

Sunday, August 31, 2008

Tony and I made plans to go camping with Missy and Aaron this summer, but Missy's work schedule was extremely restrictive so we found ourselves planning a trip to Duluth over Labor Day weekend instead. We had a ball!

Friday night we took a long stroll, met up with some old friends, and finally meandered our way down to Pizza Luce. Oddly enough, while there is one in Minneapolis, Tony and I have only eaten at the Duluth location!

It was phenomenally yummy after all of our walking around, especially considering we didn't get to eat until a late 10:00 pm! For pizza we had:
  • Ruby Rae: A delicious upside down pizza pie with the red sauce on top! Spinach, fresh diced tomatoes, Italian sausage, and mozzarella cheese. Sprinkled with crushed red pepper and parmesan cheese.

  • Baked Potato Pizza: Pizza crust smothered in buttery-garlic baby red mashed potatoes and topped with broccoli, fresh diced tomatoes, cheddar cheese and a sprinkle of smoked apple hickory bacon. Served with a side of sour cream.
Yesterday we got up decently early, went grocery shopping for lunch and snacks, and then made our way to Gooseberry Falls. Tony and I love to get out and hike, so it was ideal for us. Aaron could have his own Man vs Wild show if he only had an agent, so he was definitely in his element . . . unfortunately Missy got her fill of the park a little too quickly, but sucked it up for us.

For your enjoyment pictures will be segmented as "normal pictures" and "Aaron and Tony doing things they probably shouldn't have."

The first installment being "normal pictures."

And now . . . Aaron and Tony climbing or doing things they probably shouldn't.

We had a great time!

I love Duluth! My brother-in-law just graduated from there and it's such a neat city [in the summer only, I cannot comment on their winters].

That baby bump pic is just plain mean! :)

I LOVE that about Gooseberry--you can do and go wherever you want (at your own risk). I have a feeling that some day we won't be able to walk all over the waterfalls, or (monkey bar under the bridge) and there will be a fence. We are a lucky generation when it comes to the Gooseberry. Looks like you had a lot of fun!

(You're so sneaky with your "faux preggo" belly pic in your post below!)

No, my friend isn't from MN. She's from Alabama, practically the same town as me. That's how we became friends. There aren't many north Alabama girls at our school :)
