This is a holiday weekend for MTU students, K-Day (Keweenaw Day), also known as Keg Day to a good portion of the student population was Friday. Partly for that reason, my parents picked this weekend to come up and visit, the other reasons if you’re wondering are boring enough that I need not commit them to a written form.
They got up on Friday night, and we had a delicious dinner at The Library, a local restaurant with their own microbrewery. The food was as good as I’ve heard that it was. We putzed around for a bit and semi-helped my brother move into an apartment with his girlfriend. He’s finally out of the dorms now too.
Saturday was a good time as well. I went out for breakfast with my dad to Soumi Restaurant. It’s next door to the Molo (Tech parlance for The Motherlode Cafe). The week before I’d had some wonderful french toast made out of nisu, so I decided to go there instead of Kaleva Cafe in Hancock.
The rest of the day involved utilizing the Kirby vacuum to clean the carpets and furniture around the house while my parents took my brother to WalMart for house supplies. Later, I took them out to Breakers and we went to the end of the breakwall.
They left early this morning.
