With the PvJ ending it was the beginning of another trip. Ellen was driving to pick me up and we were heading to Minnesota to see her family. Before leaving we made a pit stop at a go karting place in Chicago! Hahn, Fearitself, and Flamesword came along. We did three races and out of all of them the one person who was the hardest to pass was Ellen! She is ridiculous at cutting you off and keeping you stuck behind her. I ended up getting lucky and making it past her in the third race but Flamesword and Hahn were no match for her. She made them look like nubcakes. Now we were ready to set off to Minnesota! It had been almost seven months since we seen the Yang family, so Ellen was super excited to see her family and so was I. We stayed there for seven days and had something planned everyday before we arrived! It was going to be an awesome trip. I love being around her family because she has such a big family and they are always together. There is never a dull moment. Also, the Hmong food was delicious! I have become so obsessed with white rice now that we picked up a rice cooker while we were there…yummy. We went to a local restaurant to have pho at least five times. it is so good! Ellen and I went to Mall of America and we cleared out PacSun! haha. We went to the Aquarium at MOA and it was awesome. The Jellyfish showing was sick. The tunnel walk through was awesome. The fish are gigantic!
They made us dress up like lunch ladies..while we were getting prepped for the go-kart course.haha
The Sea Life
We couldn't get the fish to crack a smile.
Ellen's brother and his wife are having their first baby so both families threw them their first baby shower. Let me tell you, I have never seen SO MUCH candy in my life! The baby shower theme was as Candy Land. There were dumb dumb trees and handmade cake treats. Also, every candy you can think of. Then we headed back to her brothers place later on and played a bunch of card games while having a few beers. I'm a beast at card games now! haha
We also went rock climbing at Vertical Endeavors and tore up the walls there! Ellen and I are truly monkeys!It's the best rock climbing place we've been to yet. They had so many belaying walls and bouldering walls all over. If your into rock climbing hit this place up! I've heard one of the best places to rock climb is at the Red River Gorge. So this summer sometime were planning a trip there. I'll be sure to blog about it! The last day we were there we played flag football with the family and friends at the park. The game's were intense. I scored 2 touchdowns and made some sick blocks. We had a great time seeing her family and had fun doing so much while we were there but it was time to head home and get back on the sticks to get ready for Columbus.
Ellen, making it look easy.
