Monday morning we finally escaped the house for a trip to Bear Country and a leisurely drive around the Black Hills. This photo was taken just before it started to rain - again. Sophia loves the baby bears at Bear Country. After Bear Country we drove up to Mount Rushmore, although we didn't stop. We've been there dozens of times but I just don't get tired of seeing "the boys" on the mountain. Even through the rain.
On Saturday DD and I had a mother-daughter day starting with lunch in downtown Rapid City with 3 of my friends who all live out there now. All 3 ladies are also quilters so you can imagine what we talked about at least part of the time. After lunch DD and I went and had pedicures. She is 9 months pregnant and can't reach her toes anymore so I figured this would be a nice treat for her. It was very relaxing!
And while she relaxed in the car I made a quick trip into a quilt shop in downtown Rapid City, called Quilt Connection. So a little stash enhancement occurred: 4.5 yards of neutral batiks for backing at $6 a yard, 10 fat quarters just for fun, and 2 yards of a patriotic fabric. So I added 9 yards of fabric pretty quickly.
Sunday was spent making freezer meals - 13 of them - to make things a bit easier once the baby arrives. The little guy could show up any time in the next couple of weeks.
