Today I took mama and daddy out for their birthdays. Mama’s is Thursday the 13th and daddy’s is the 29th. We had the best breakfast, a country skillet breakfast with eggs, hash browns with sausage, green peppers and onions. Homemade sweet rye bread and orange juice. Then next door is a shop called the Country House. It is the most amazing house turned into a gift shop. I took pictures to share with you cuz if you are ever in the area you have got to go and eat at the School House Cafe and shop at the Country House. If I had a million dollars, heck even a hundred I would of found tons of great things. I did get some pretty napkins.

Now enjoy the pictures. I’m sorry they aren’t top quality since I took them with my cell phone but you’ll get the idea.


This is mama, with one of the hats they had. Isn’t she cute?

I want this sunflower canvas. I’m going to have to look into some of the pictures I have and get them printed on canvas and framing them.

Mama’s favorite color is purple and she loved this purple room. We saw some glass ornaments she really liked. Ideas for me for later on.

I loved these two necklaces. I make jewelry so I noticed these and really feel in love with them.

We had a great day. We don’t get out to do this very often and I am sure glad we did today. Happy Birthday mama and daddy. I love you both so much!!!

Take care my friends and enjoy your visit to McGregor Minnesota. God Bless!!
