Jacob's Bachelor Party!!
Hey! This was a great day! At least I think it was! I started the morning by taking my brother, my dad, and my brother-in-law out for breakfast in St. Paul at a place called Swede Hollow Café. The breakfast was great! It was a fun local place that served some excellent breakfast burritos, baked French toast, and tasty chai. After breakfast we met all of Jacob’s friends and family at Vertical Endeavors where we spent a couple hours climbing on the indoor walls. Frankly, I have to say that my dad was the best climber of the group! If you watch the videos here, you can see him scaling to the top of a couple tricky walls. One of the walls was a free climbing wall – no ropes!
After Vertical Endeavors we made our way up towards Andover where we had lunch at Mansetti’s Pizza. Jacob knew the owners so it was fun for him to see them as well. JB met us here as well. After pizza we ventured over to Northside Sports Paintball where we met a few more people (like Pete). We played several rounds of paintball which was loads of fun! Check out the slideshow below for pics!
After paintball we went back to Andover for a homemade spaghetti dinner. Thanks Mom! Some of the guys watched Rocketman inside while I set up for the next event – and later that night we all went outside to watch We Were Soldiers on the projector in the backyard. It was a blast! By the end of the night I was wiped out (probably still recovering from basic training) and crashed pretty hard again!
