Great Weekend!

I spent Saturday afternoon with my friend, Stacey, and her two great kids. They found out I didn't really know about all the fun stuff to do in Mason City, so they created a really fun day for me. We started the afternoon at the nature center and hiking at Lime Creek. It was a little longer than the kids liked, but they made it and had great attitudes.

We then stopped at the Police Station to say hi to Stacey's husband Jeremy. Don't worry, he wasn't in trouble...he's one of Mason City's finest. Thanks for tour, Jeremy. By the way, it doesn't look at all like what they show on TV and movies.

We then stopped in at the art museum. A wedding was going to be held there, so we had to make that quick too. It was really neat though. The guy that made the puppets on The Sound of Music was from Mason City and he donated a lot of the puppets to the museum. The puppets from the movie were there! It was really neat to see them.

We then went to their house for dinner. The ribs were super yummy! Thanks for a great day, Stacey. It was wonderful!

We were making "beaver teeth" for the camera.

On our hike.

Tabitha took some great pictures on our hike. I love fall.

Glad you had fun. We should go roller skating this winter. You can also cross country ski at Lime creek. I've never done it but it could be fun.

Glad that you, Stacey & fam. could tour Mason City & some of the area. Sounds like the perfect day! You need more times like that. Love you Erin! --Mom

Looks like so much fun. Man I sure wish you had know about this sooner....all those times I came to visit and we just sat and stared at each other wondering what to do next.

Sounds like you had a great day. Mason City seemed like a neat town, the few times we made it down there. We used to go down there to shop sometimes. It was just as close as Rochester, Burnsville, or Mankato.

Your river pictures are beautiful. I love hikes.
