Two weekends ago my mom stayed the weekend with us and we had a great time. The kids were so excited to be with Nana. We took them to the pumpkin patch/farm that we like near Stillwater.
feeding the ducks corn
We took the kids over to the corn pit and didn't think Emmett would want to go in. He walked over to it and felt the corn. Then he climbed in and got really quiet. I thought this was my cue to brace myself, but he relaxed and crawled over to some trucks. He played in the pit for almost an hour!
so much corn!
^^Ethnie brought a whole ear of corn over to the goats and they went nuts. They would have torn down the fence if they could. It was so funny.
happy to be with Nana.
Last weekend we made a last-minute reservation on the Avalon river boat on the St. Croix river in Stillwater. It was such a beautiful day and we wanted to take advantage of it.
^^the kids loved watching the big paddles
these sweet smiles make me melt

We had such a nice ride on the river boat. I highly recommend it for a date or a family activity! We definitely plan on doing it again next summer. Bon voyage!
