After a month at college it was time for a visit to check up on our oldest. Brandon is a freshman at the University of Minnesota Duluth. From all signs he is loving the college life. But it’s good to let him know we still miss him.
Ellie wanted this car. After all what little girl doesn’t like “Hello Kitty”?! Not sure what someone of driving age would want with a car like this.
Anna checking out a college classroom and getting a view of things to come.
Brandon showing us one of his lecture halls.
I think Jeff really likes the bulldogs!
On campus with my girls.
After our tour of campus we treated Brandon and the family to a special dinner at the restaurant at the top of the Radisson Hotel downtown. With windows all around the revolving floor takes you on a slow tour of both the town and the harbor areas.
As I mentioned we were at a revolving restaurant so it makes the following incident even more incredible. Just as we were completing our meal, Jeff gets up and starts talking to this group of people. I finally recognized Jeff’s Uncle LaVerne. It turns out they had been visiting along the North Shore hoping to see some fall colors (unfortunately there wasn’t much yet). They live in southern Minnesota. They had no idea we were in Duluth either. It was nice to say “hi” to family. We also find out later that a different cousin and her family were actually staying that that hotel over the same weekend.
