The week before Watermelon Day, my cousin Connor came to visit. The girls love hanging out with Connor, so we're glad he was able to come stay again this year. We had a lot of fun each day:
We went to Minnesota's Largest Candy Store in Jordan. Everyone enjoyed the treat they picked out! That evening was Abby's first swimming lesson.
It was a really nice, cool day so we went up to Como Zoo. We saw the Sparky the seal show and enjoyed a picnic at the zoo. More swimming lessons that night! Dave came home late that night.
We went to the free movie in Lakeville, "Epic", and met up with our friends, the Clarks. After lunch, we found out that swimming was cancelled, so we headed down to Rochester a little earlier than planned. Norah, Dave, and I visited Dave's dad in the hospital, but Abby couldn't because of her bad cough.
We stayed in Rochester to visit Dave's dad a little more, and headed back to make it to swimming lessons that evening.
We met up with the Clarks at "The Works" museum in Bloomington. The kids had a lot of fun exploring this science/engineering museum. After lunch, we picnicked at Chutes and Ladders park and played for a bit. The park was pretty crazy, so we didn't stay too long. After swimming lessons that night, we headed to Iowa for the weekend.
