Another sweet weekend in the Land of Sky Blue Waters. Had Pink Cupcake's 10-year birthday party and for a party-on-the-cheap we had a blast. Took 6 squirrel-y 10 year olds to Hyland Lake Park in Bloomington, MN. This place is ENORMOUS and has the world's biggest play structure I swear. Big enough to keep all six of them climbing and running for four straight hours.
Then off to the picnic area where we found a deck of tables overlooking Hyland Lake. After grilling hot dogs and singing Happy Birthday, they played in and around the lake for another two hours. Not quite warm enough here to actually get IN but that didn't stop them from poking everything with sticks and wading around in the sandy waters.
Yesterday we worked a bit more on the garden, laying down mulched paths between the raised beds and marking out the rabbit fence. Took two girls to Target and Twin #1 got some much-needed spring clothes while Pink Cupcake spent two of her birthday Target gift cards. Here's a hint - kids LOVE gift cards! Then she and I went to DQ where she bought us both a treat with her DQ gift card from the amazing MG.
