Now, I know that Woody's is not the family unpainted furniture store of choice. We have always been more of a Buck's family, as Gzmoohoo can attest. But there were other reasons to head on over to St. Louis Park this morning, namely the Pannekoeken Huis. I am not Dutch, nor do I live in a place where there are lots of people of Dutch descent, so I am not totally sure on the translation but it looks an awfully lot like Pancake House to me.

For my own good, I should probably only eat this maybe once every 6 months or so. But boy was it wonderful. Apples and cinnamon and just... yum! Andy was much more sensible and had an omelette and some "dutch" breakfast potatoes. No photos, sorry.
Since we were over on that rarely-visited side of town, we made a stop at Andy's favorite beer store, The Four Firkins. They have every kind of beer you could ever possibly want to buy, I think. Andy would have spent much, much more time there if I'd let him. We ended up with the following:

Why did no one tell me about the less-than-fun yard work part of home ownership? I would be totally happy to never rake again. Calvin spent most of that time doing one of his favorite things - surveying the front yard from his favorite spot on the couch:
