Mom Visits!

Mom and long-time family friend Gail came out for a visit over the weekend, and headed back home today. WE had a great time, and the weather was great! This is particularly notable because last time Mom came out, in April, she wound up with pneumonia and it snowed the day she left.

We took them to Pahl's, a local farmer's market, and found some really neat pumpkins:
Then we let them loose to paint a few pumpkins - we were duly impressed with the results!
On Sunday, we took them to Larks, and thought Mom was going to split her sides when she caught a glimpse of herself in this fun house mirror!
We drove back along the Mississippi, which offered some great scenic views. Here's a pic of Joe and I (with Gus) on the bank of the river:
It's fun to be able to spoil a parent - and I think we did a good job! Joe wow'd them with his cooking and baking....they almost didn't leave!

By the way, you don't look anything like your Mom. Nope, not one little bit.
