Happy Birthday Dad!

My brother and his wife, along with Jim and I drove down to Illinois to surprise my dad for his 81st birthday. Boy did we surprise him! Enjoyed a quick two day visit at their new home. My brother had 30 years of 8mm films converted to DVDs. Some of which I had never seen. Can't wait to view all of them.

School again

Every year the summer seems to disappear so quickly. This year was no different. With many trips and adventures in July and August, no wonder why school crept up on us!

Minnesota State Fair

Every few years I try to get to the fair. I love looking through the Creative Activities building. Beautiful quilts, knitting, stained glass, woodworking. Love it all. Motivation for me to start working on projects again.

This year Kevin, Haley, Lucas and I decided to go to the state fair on a "cold" day. We hoped people would stay away. Not the case. Quite a crowd! We still had a wonderful time. Ate a variety of foods and enjoyed many exhibits including the Lego Mindstorm robotic one.

Next year we will need to pick a nice, sunny day.
