Tonight was the Manitou Days parade. Kirra had SO MUCH FUN! I got off work at 4:00pm, didn’t make it home until 5:00pm, had to let Tyler out, and then floor it to White Bear Lake! Of course traffic was bad again, so when I finally arrived in White Bear Lake, I sprinted over to where my family was so that we could get settled in. Kirra LOVED the candy part!!! It was like Trick-Or-Treating without all of the walking!
Since Jason was out of town this week, I packed up Kirra and we went on a field trip to Elk River to see Pam & Phil. They raise chickens and turkeys at their home, so we went out to go see them, and have dinner with them.
It was such a lovely visit. Those two are truly kindred spirits! Pam made a divine dinner of chicken, stuffing, vegetables and had wine too! Then we went out and showed Kirra all of the animals and she could hardly contain her excitement! We ended up staying until 9:45pm. Here are some photos from our trip to the Bergstrom’s!
Went to the farmers market today with Pam. It was such a blessing to take her with since she knows FAR MORE about gardening than I do. I picked up some Zucchini, Basil, Cilantro, Tomato, Peppers, and other herbs for my mini garden. She really helped me out though choosing which ones to plant!
Here is a picture of my garden. (This was taken actually a few weeks later than this post)
What a great weekend we had! We had planned to leave at 6:30am on Friday morning, but didn’t even wake up until 7:30am. I was up until 1:30 packing, and was just way too tired to wake up early. Jason had a long week at work as well, and wanted to sleep in too. We finally left the house about 9:15am,and got up to Lake Lydick around 1pm. It was so fun, and Kirra had a blast. We went fishing with Kirra, and caught lots of fish.
