Plymouth Days

What a nice relaxing Sunday. I'm visiting one of my daughter's and her family in Plymouth, Minnesota for a few days and today was just a kick back kind of day. We watched General Conference via the internet this morning and after it ended I took my two grandchildren for a walk over to see the Mellinium Gardens just down the street from them. We came back, had a little lunch and then watched the final session of Conference and after it had ended my daughter and I started dinner. My daughter got a new basic bread recipe and so we tried it out. We made pizza, bread sticks, and a braid with cream cheese and strawberry jam all twisted together and then we covered it with frosting...Well, all I can tell you is that there's only about half of the twist left and that's it. Everything else is gone. Everything was yuuuuuummy! Good thing we cut the recipe in to watch those carbs...yeah.....right!

I've been trying to get some stitching done while here, but being a little sleep deprived makes my eyes want to snap shut every time I sit down to start working on my stitching, blogging, right now, for's all I can do to keep my eyes open. That's what going to bed at 0330 and getting up at 0730 will do to you.

Her are a few of the pictures that I took at the parade we went to yesterday at the Plymouth Days Celebration and a few from the Mellinum Gardens from today's outing. Have a good one and I'll post pics of my cottages when I get back:

Unicycles--looks like fun to me;)

The Shriner's precision mini cars

Pony Rides and Face Painting

after the parade

The city of Plymouth puts this parade and carnival on every year the first Saturday in October. I took the kids last year, but didn't know about the carnival part of the celebration. It' all free, unless you buy food. We had made our lunch and took it with us, so basically we had a free day of fun and entertainment. Now how often can you do that any more? Oh yeah, mom and dad were at a wedding so they missed out on all of the fun.

Here are a couple of pictures I took at the Mellinum Gardens today...

Have a GREAT week;)
