Friday August 27........another trip into Minnesota

Friday was my husband's birthday.....and we took a little Bemidji, Minnesota.
Like the last trip we went to North Central Minnesota........there are LOTS of trees. Even tho they are very pretty.... I get rather claustrophobic going through miles and miles of trees. I am a prairie person......where you can see for miles and miles and miles........... Anyway......back to the story.
Right outside of Bemidji is Itasca State Park. This is the headwaters of the Mississippi River.......just a little creek in the middle of this pretty park. You would never know by looking at the Mighty Mississippi.......that is starts with just a little trickle. We didn't go into the park that day.....have to do that another time.
A pretty little church just outside the park.

Our trip to Bemidji was to visit Jeff's uncle....... "Uncle Buster" is Jeff's hero...... he was very instrumental in helping Jeff see the "right path" in his impressionable teenage years....
He is the sweetest man and I really enjoy going to visit him.
We had a wonderful visit and it was a great way to spend Jeff's birthday. After our visit we drove into town just to look around a bit..........Also stopped at a charming little quilt shop. I spent a little time there.....and Jeff took a little nap to rest up for the drive home.
For his birthday supper......we went to Mexican Village...(we go there every year for both our birthdays).......
A good day !!
The next post is a continuation of our day.....


  1. Being with family is always a great way to spend a birthday. Happy Belated Birthday Jeff!!


  2. Ya know I was getting worried about you cuz I hadn't heard from you in a few days. I was thinking about sending out the National Guard to see if you was trapped in the office or basement and couldn't find your way out. lol Looks like you had a beautiful weekend!

    Happy Birthday Jeff :)

    Take Care :)

  3. Many wishes to your husband!
