Fun Packed Weekend

I had quite the full weekend... On Saturday I went to Minnehaha Falls Park to see the waterfall and "hike" down to the Mississippi. It was a really nice park in the middle of the city. There were times you would swear you were in a big state park (aside from the sound of traffic and the band playing at the shelters on top of the cliff).
There was also a farm stand on the way so I stopped to get some apples, cucumbers, zucchini and melons- I'm really loving the farm stands and farmers markets- I will miss them in the winter. Then Sat evening some friends and I met for dinner in downtown Minneapolis. It was great to have a night out in civilization!

PS. The weather is staying cold and hopefully the leaves will change soon!!!!

No pics just yet but SOON there will be pics of leaves changing color!!!! I'm so excited I can barely contain myself! FALL IS HERE!!!!!!!!!!!!! The heat broke earlier this week and it is fall for sure. The sky is deep blue, the air smells crisp and fresh and the summer flowers have gone to seed. This is my first autumn in 7 (count them 7) years and I'm going to enjoy it. I've worn a coat two mornings in a row, my morning coffee doesn't make me hot and sweaty, there are winter squash at the farmers market and I have turned the AC off and opened the windows!
Hurray for 4 seasons!
