Home again...

July 22, 2012

We had a great weekend visiting our granddaughter. =)

I scored huge grandma points by giving Brooklyn two giant bags of marshmallows, the same kind you get in cereal, but without the cereal. {Yeah, baby....}

We spent time in Sioux Falls, SD at Falls Park. 

Grandpa Russ and his girl...

Grandma's girl...

The Blue Angels were performing at an air show in town and flew right over our heads several times. It was awesome!

We toured the Sertoma Butterfly House and Marine Cove.  

I have to admit, what scored some big points with me was the fact that one of the nicest quilt shops I have ever had the privilege to shop in happens to be less than a block away from Brooklyn's house!! I am not kidding!!

Crafty Corner Quilt and Sewing Shoppe will be seeing a lot of me in the future. I was treated like a queen. =) Make sure you check out their web site. The place was huge, with a huge clearance section and the ladies that work there were so, so nice. They told me about another quilt shop I must go see next time we head their way. I was impressed that they were willing to talk up another store. 

I hope you all had a great weekend, too!
