SCSU Family Weekend

Posted on Sunday September 26, 2010 at 10:45pm in ,

This weekend our family went to St. Cloud to see Mackenzie for family weekend. Mackenzie has been going to Saint Cloud State University for her first year of college. We went to spend Saturday and Sunday with her.

When we got there it was a sunny day. We made good time, arriving before noon.

Welcome to St. Cloud!

Mackenzie wasn’t ready to eat so we decided to go to brunch without her.

When we were done eating we went to Mackenzie’s dorm to meet up with her.

Her dorm was really nice and all of her roommates were out of town for the weekend so we had the place to ourselves. The place was even nicer than Chancellors Hall. Each student has not only their own room, but their own bathroom.

We took a walk around campus and saw various classroom buildings and department buildings. One of the first buildings we saw was the campus library.

We went and stuffed a husky, the school’s mascot.

Later that day, we went back to the hotel room. We also went to the local mall and I found a jacket I really liked. I got it and this is me wearing it back at the hotel room:

Later, it was back to Mackenzie’s place to drop her off.

When we got back to the hotel we went to the built-in restaurant and bar for some drinks and an appetizer. There was some live music playing and I wanted to take a picture, but as luck would have it that is exactly when my battery decided to die. That’s not bad, considering. It’s better than it dying earlier in the day. Actually I think it was pretty lucky. I’m glad I have all the other photos from the day at least.
