After being only 5 hours from Lynnie since moving here to IA, we finally made it up to MN to visit for the weekend. Myself and B. left Friday evening and made it up there by 7pm. We met up with Lynn for dinner at a yummy Pizza place, before heading out to her home. It was a very long drive, but soooo worth it. I missed Lynn so much. We stayed up much too late catching up, but headed out first thing in the morning to the MN State Fair. It a huge fair.
First activity we did was the river ride. This was extremely fun and OMG wet!! I was so soaked I purchased an outfit from a fair dealer to wear for the rest of the day. We ate lots of food and had lots of fun and saw lots of interesting things. Of course, I enjoyed the fiber arts sections. B. and Lynn took in several rides while I tried not to over heat.
After enjoying the day, we headed over to the airport to pick up Chris from his return trip from London. It was so great to catch up with Chris over a yummy Italian dinner. B. enjoyed playing a few games of chess with Chris before heading to bed for the night. We all woke the next day and spent the day relaxing by the beach. More Chess and some Wii DDR, then cat watching, and B. took the kayak out for a spin. It was such a nice day and so fun visiting with Lynn and Chris.
The pictures are from the State Fair and are fabulous!!! three of the best quilts I have ever seen!
