This year's weather was perfect for Watermelon Day down in Stanhope. We headed down the night before, after Abby's swimming lesson, and stayed at Miriam's. The girls enjoyed the parade and all of the activities afterward. Abby's favorite this year was working with Miriam and my dad at the ring toss. She also enjoyed the swings, and especially the duck pond (with double prizes when her great uncles were working who wouldn't love that?). Norah loved the airplanes and train and of course the duck pond, too. We only ended up having watermelon once, but it was delicious! We left after supper to head back to Miriam's for a movie night. After church on Sunday, we stayed for a BBQ meal before heading back to Minnesota.
