Yesterday we dropped little man off with grandpa for a weekend of fun. They are going to watch my uncle race his race car. Which it super cool for my little man since that's all he thinks about is cars. (to young to think about girls LOL).
So the goal of the day to day is to have fun and not get thrown in the pool.

Sometimes you just need to take sometime and reflect on things. There are days where my head is spinning with so much I just do not know what to do or where to start. With that said I took some me time.
See isn't that cute.Here is Brit getting ready to sing I missed her singing because this happened next.
Fourth head from the bottom would be my husband the biggest kid of them all. And see Brit could not stay away from the fun.
Then we went to the Back to the 50's Car show.
Now that was fun. The song " If I had a Million Dollars" is playing in my head.

Now for your viewing pleasure I thought I would show you some pictures and give you alittle history that goes with them.
Here in this picture you can see areas that had been drilled for them to use explosives to blow out the stone
Here Jim and the kids are looking down a hole in the quarry. These types of areas are now used as dens for gods critters.
This is the power house. Here is where there was large coal fired steam generator with a 20 foot fly wheel. Inside the power house they also had a artesian well that they would use to bottle water. This was aside business they had going on.
This area is where they would crush rock that was not used for building to be used for cement mix and or as road bed. Between these two walls a train would sit to be filled. This is the Dragons Tooth Rapids. Known for its beauty and unpredictability.Here is some of the regrowth. There are several plants here that only grow in one other place in MN. One of them is Birds-eye Primrose.
Well I hope you enjoyed our little tour.
