Clorese in front of the diner

jason and i had a little time to be tourists, so before the birthday party we had lunch at the phillips avenue diner and wandered around downtown a little bit. then we joined everyone at the hotel.

“is this four? okay, how about this — is this four?” hannie wasn’t so sure about jason’s second version of “four” but she counted and made sure.

really yummy cake!

Happy first 4th birthday party, Hannie! #project365

later in the evening, jason and i decided to go check out the sioux falls stampede. it was kind of a sad hockey game, but we still had fun. maybe it was just an off night for the team?

i wasn’t sure which color team we were supposed to be rooting for, so i found some excellent people-watching in the crowds.

this blimp was dropping free tickets! i wanted to win, even though i would’ve had to give the tickets away. i love to win! it doesn’t happen very often.
