Our weekend is now over (yup, with it being Spring Break, our weekend has lasted through Monday).  We spent the weekend in Durand with my parents.  Andrew LOVES going to the farm and spending time with Grandma and Grandpa.

I pulled Andrew out of school early on Friday so we could hit the road.  We drove through some brief snow storms, but made it safely to Durand in time to head to church for the fish fry.  It was as yummy as ever!!  Andrew thoroughly enjoyed the french fries and cupcakes.

Saturday Andrew and Grandpa shelled the popcorn that they had grown last summer.  He loves going with Grandpa and helping him…of course, Andrew plays 20 questions with Grandpa too to learn as much as he can about everything!!  Saturday afternoon, Grandma, Andrew, and I drove to Wabasha, MN to the National Eagle Center.  We had a lot of fun learning about Eagles, and Andrew did a scavenger hunt they had and earned a button for finding almost everything (the few things he couldn’t locate were in a classroom that was full with classes they had going all afternoon).  We even had to borrow some binoculars so Andrew could try to see Eagles.

After learning about Eagles we went to Kellogg, MN to Lark Toys.  We loved browsing through all the toys for sale as well as their vintage toy displays.  They also have an indoor carousel that Andrew enjoyed riding.

Sunday morning we went to the cities to visit with my sisters and their families.  Andrew loves playing with his cousins…even though they are younger than him and (besides baby Evan) all girls!!  The girls had a princess dance party, and since Andrew is not a princess, he played drum for them all…

We even attempted to get a picture of all 5 grandkids together.  After multiple takes, this was the best one…
