Girl's Weekend 2012

This weekend was our annual Girl's Weekend  (+ Connor).  My aunts Miriam and Mara and cousins Sarah and Connor came up late Friday night from Iowa to spend the weekend with us.  This year, we stuck closer to here, and did some shopping and had Caribou in Northfield before heading to our hotel in Faribault.

We stayed at a nice place with a 2-bedroom suite and pool area that had a zero-depth entry kiddie pool/splash pad.  It was perfect for the girls.  After a nap Saturday, we checked out the River Bend Nature Center in Faribault, which was having a special Halloween event.

It was pretty packed, but we still enjoyed a jack-o-lantern trail walk, a "haunted" house, some cider, games, and a bouncy house.  After supper, Abby did some swimming with everyone, then we enjoyed some game-playing time after she went to bed.  This morning, we did some more swimming and some Christmas ornament crafting before parting ways.  We always have a great time, and this year was no exception!
