empty bowl 2008

Today was Empty Bowl 2008. This awesome benefit, organized by the Second Harvest Northern Lakes Food Bank, helps feed people in need, and provides family fun every year. Basically, you buy a ticket that entitles you to a bowl of delicious soup from a local restaurant, and a handcrafted earthenware bowl created especially for the event by school children and local artisans. Located downtown at the Depot, there is also live music, a silent auction, and self-guided tours of the railroad museum. Logan selected his bowl almost immediately this year, choosing one from the first table he looked at. Tracy and I did our traditional wandering around, surveying the thousands of bowls, until the "One To Be Selected" made itself known.
