Minnesota Pics

Here's some more pics from our trip up to central Minnesota.

Like true quilters we had to find and stop at a quilt store. It just so happened that without knowing it this one was only 3 miles down the road from where we stayed.

Country Caboose Wahkon, MN

Then one day I woke everybody up early because I wanted to go pick raspberries. were they ticked at me at 7AM!!!! Here is the raspberry portion at Great River Gardens in Aitken, MN.

Yummy.....we've had a lot of raspberries since!!!

We also spent a lot of time at Father Hennipen State Park in Isle, MN. It had a great beach area for Lake Mille Lacs.

What a nice view for a picnic.

Then here was a pic out the car window of a storm we passed through somewhere in IA. Let me tell you this was the best looking part of it. We stopped for dinner and it grew pitch black. We asked one of the employees about the weather and he said that there were 70-80mph winds and golf ball size hail expected to start momentarily. Let's just say we got back on the highway and zoomed towards the south!

Next week I get to go to New York City for a friend's wedding. I plan on spending a day bumming around the garment district and visiting other quilty places so I'll be sure to post pics of that when I can. Thanks to Paula Nadelstern's 3hr tour (posted on her webpage) I think it should be some fun browsing.
