Well I have been MIA lately as this last weekend was our yearly "outing". We went to Hutchinson Minnesota for the Orange Spectacular show on Saturday. That is a show, which for me is a bit boring, but of all Orange Allis Chalmers tractors. We stayed there until almost the end then headed to our hotel in Hutchinson for the night. Here is a picture of my oldest 2 showing off their new hats we bought!
Then Sunday we went to the Minnesota zoo. We spent the day there and headed home. Now to get things lined up to leave for Alaska on August 10th!! Here is a picture of their aquarium. It was hard to get pictures of certain fish. We just missed the guy that was in there cleaning up a few things.
They also had an area that had lots of different butterflies in. It was hard to get a picture but we did manage a few for the fair. This is one of them. I thought the blue color was just awesome but this one was always opening and closing it's wings so hard to get a good picture! It was a great weekend though and the kids had fun too.
