Melanie and I failed to complete an adventure together this weekend. Sorry to disappoint. We were busy the whole weekend, though, just nothing seemed to qualify as an adventure. I left town friday evening with the 11 year-old scouts for a campout in Sand Dunes State Forest where we had fun eating hot dogs, discussing pokemon, geocaching, and general tom-foolery.
After we got home on saturday, we went with b+k to the Guthrie Theater to see A Midsummer Night’s Dream at the Guthrie Theater. It was a lot of fun, though some parts were completely over-the-top. It was an interesting production – very contemporary. Some parts of the text were sung to music and there was plenty of flying (dangling from wires from the ceiling), and the director seems to have a thing for actors and actresses ending up in their underwear onstage. Overall, it was good, clean fun – but according to Mel, not an adventure.
We spent Sunday afternoon repairing our garage door opener, riding our scooter around town, walking around Lake Calhoun, and going to the movie theater. All fun – but not adventures.
Sorry to disappoint. We’ll begin right now to plan our adventure for next weekend.
