Day trip'in

If you have wandered over to Stumbling over Chaos, you might have seen that there was snow happening the other day.

Here we have proof. The flowers survived and there are some pumpkins hiding behind there. So, the snow was pretty. But it was not welcome. The fact that i'm on vacation and didn't have to worry about the snow at the store, now that was welcomed.

So I decided yesterday to take a little day trip to Stillwater, MN. It was great to see some water, yellow leaves and the only snow was melting snow.

Main St Stillwater is pretty cute. I think the next time family comes up we are
going to have to take them here. The Ms. Pacman window art is from a food
place. It looked tasty, I didn't stop to eat.

I did stop to look at yarn though :)
This is Darn.Knit(Anyway) a nice new shop. They have yarn, fabric and art.
They have been looking for local (mn or maybe wi since it's right across the
river) artists. It was nice talking to Carly about the shop and about a camera
for the shop ;) Even on vacation I talk cameras.

There was some yarn bought (i'll show you in another post) and they were
super cool and gave me a reusable shopping bag with their logo on it.
It's a very cute bag and it will get a lot of work.

So, if you are feeling like a day trip. Stillwater is just about 30hr to 45min away.

I know I'll be going back.

I had no idea there was a shop there! This is SO going in a linkity post at some point. :)

This is going to be sort of a pathetic leaf year, isn't it?

We went there last weekend too. Between the kids play area and awesome yarn selection I was sold. Wish it were closer!
