Last Friday, the boys and I met my sister's family and my Mom at "Minnesota's Largest Candy Store." Here are 3 quick photos from that, but you can see a lot more in a post on my "root beer" blog:
This is only about 20% of their soda selection!
Candy EVERYWHERE, and puzzles lining the ceiling.
Then we went a few more miles down the road to Emma Krumbees and their "Scarecrow Festival." It was the 3rd year we've done that. Here are some pics:
My niece jumping off the haystack!
And that's my Mom, little Charlie, Henry at the top, and my nephew on the right.
Charlie hobbling around in his snowsuit. It was 45 degrees and WINDY.
My Mom and Charlie.
My sis and the 4 kids on a short tractor ride.
A goofy one!
My sister's pic on the hayride. See?... I was there too!
A "train" ride. My nephew has Charlie on his lap in front of me,
Henry's waving, and my niece is at the very front.
Our gang on the pirate ship!
The boys were both PASSED OUT before we could get back on the highway when we left!
Grandpa finishing a round.
Henry and Grandpa pulling away.
Charlie reminds me of his other Grandpa in this photo!
Swinging in Grandma's backyard.
Helping Grandma make applesauce the next morning.
Visiting Mike (Pharmie's younger brother) and Brianna's chickens!
Charlie wanted to catch one SO BAD.
Chasing chickens through the garden.
Another day, another nap in the car over the long ride back home.
And after a big day Friday of hauling Charlie around at the candy store, Scarecrow Festival, and at Grandpa and Grandma's house, my forearm/elbow pain really flared up. It's still pretty angry from Friday. I *think* it's on the mend overall, but Friday was just a bit of a set-back.
