I decided to take the day off and have a little fun with the First Mate and the Little Admiral this afternoon, and it stretched well into the evening. We drove 80 miles to a fun little place called Pleasant Valley Tree Farms, a pumpkin patch with plenty of old-fashioned fun for the younger set. My son was a bit amused when we told him of our plans -- he wondered why we had to drive 80 miles to find a place like this -- but it was well worth it.
As soon as we arrived, our four-year-old granddaughter started running all over the place, unable to decide which activity she wanted to do first. She played on the playground, rode John Deere tricycles for a while, took us through a cornfield maze (not the FM's favorite activity today), and dragged the Captain through the "Spooky Trail". We took a hayride through their Christmas tree farm, which was spectacular, and a nice woman across from us took this picture:
After spending the day at Pleasant Valley, on one of the nicest days of weather we've had in weeks, we drove back to Minneapolis and had dinner with my son and daughter-in-law at Loring Pasta Bar, one of the best restaurants in Dinkytown. (Don't ask.) We just got home a little while ago, and the FM is already asleep. I'll be right behind her, but I thought I'd share the day with CQ readers. A Pleasant Valley Sunday is exactly what I needed. I hope you had the same kind of day with your loved ones.Sphere It View blog reactions
