Minnesota Thanksgiving!

I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving week last week.  I know I sure did.  We went with our friends to Minnesota for Thanksgiving this year to spent time with  more friends and their family.  The adventure start early Saturday before Thanksgiving, we piled into my friends Rav4 and drove for 2 days.  We drove through some patches of snow to get there.  We were all very excited to see the snow as everyone but the driver was taking pictures of the snow as we drove through it, Lol!

We got to Moose Lake, Minnesota, mid-afternoon on that Sunday before Thanksgiving.  I was cold outside, even my husband was wearing a winter coat, which he never does here in Maryland.  Monday, we went to Duluth and drove around, having fun taking pictures by Lake Superior.  At Lunch we went to Grandma's Restaurant in Duluth.  They have the best food and especially the Chicken and Wild Rice Soup is to die for.

Tuesday, we drove to the Twin Cities and spent the day at the Mall of America.  They are not kidding it takes days to see everything in there.  There is something there for everyone, between the Amusement Park in the Middle to the Shops.  On the way back we stopped at Culver's Burger shop and the Casinos, what a great day.

Wednesday, we stayed around the house and watched the snow start to fall, until late afternoon.  Then we all went into town and watched the new Hunger Games Movie, Catching Fire.  It was great movie.  As we walked out the movie theater the snow was now couple inches deep, so we made the long and slow trek home.

Thanksgiving was nice we ate dinner at our friends Jean's mom house.  Plenty of football and family and friend time.  Wonderful day!

Friday and Saturday, was our drive back to the real world.  It was a great trip and I would do it again in a heart beat.

Sunday, I started working on my new t-shirt quilt job.  I will blog about that starting tomorrow.
