Even with all the catching up, we had a lot planned for the weekend. Saturday morning we headed to Red Wing to get supplies for our chicken fence (which is a whole other post), and I needed to get a shower gift for a baby shower on Sunday. We ate at our favorite Mexican restaurant for lunch which was a nice treat! We returned home just long enough to get a few more loads of laundry done and do the dishes before we headed to Zumbrota for the Covered Bridge Festival parade.
This was Clara's first parade and she loved the bands and units that played music. She was not, however, a fan of the loud cars or the fire engines and clung to me or grandma when they passed. After the parade we went back to my parent's house for supper, then headed home to crash in our beds!
Sunday was Paul's first Father's Day! We headed to Zumbrota for dinner (farm-speak for lunch) with my parents (and had the yummiest pork chops EVER). In the afternoon we all enjoyed tractor and gator rides around the yard. Clara refused to take a nap, but fell asleep in the carseat on the 3 ½ minute drive to the baby shower.
The baby shower was fun, as they usually are, and it was great to Cindy before the baby arrives. Clara behaved really well and hammed it up when appropriate. J
Then it was back home around 7pm, just in time to get Clara to bed and get lunches and bags packed for work on Monday morning… a busy weekend, but one that went too fast.
I need a nap.
Clara's first parade! and Paul's first Father's Day!
