Two Year Anniversary

Today is our two year anniversary! We took a few days over the weekend to enjoy a trip to Rochester, MN. We enjoyed beautiful fall colors, seeing the geese at Silver Lake Park, shopping, Mayowood Mansion and Niagara Cave. Below are a few posts of our adventures.

Mayowood Mansion

Mayowood Mansion was one of our favorite parts of the trip since we both enjoy history. Unfortunately, we couldn't take any pictures inside, but here are a few pics of the outer perimeters. Make Mayowood Mansion a "must" if you are in the Rochester area!

Niagara Cave

Niagara Cave, located in Harmony, MN was a fun find for us. If you don't mind 48 degree temps and getting dripped on occasionally, you'd enjoy this adventure underground.

A Day at the Arboretum

There is an arboretum in town that had a Fall Harvest Festival today. They had scarecrows on display, games for kids and lots of flowers. Justin and I met up with our friend, Andrea and her 2 kiddos. They will soon be joining husband & Dad, Dan in China, so we enjoyed spending a few hours with them. Here are a few pics from the day. You'll notice little Jacquelyn is in two different outfits. The poor girl took a wrong step and fell into the pond she's gazing at below. Luckily, Mom had a change of clothes for her and we were all happy campers again!
