I am going to attempt to blog about some of our events the past few weeks. We were so busy in between trips that I didn't have time to blog about them. We went to see the Betsy Tacy homes the end of July. I did my research before our trip and I think we did nearly everything that was possible to do in New Ulm when we just had a few hours.
We drove to New Ulm on July 29. Our first stop was Schell's brewery. It was hot and we were sure the Lambs were not willing to take an hour tour. I thought that possibly there would be a bar where we could purchase beer and root beer for the Lambs, but they legally can't do that. The only way to get "samples" is to take the tour. We bought a few items at the gift shop and looked around the museum. They had peacocks outside which scared the Lambs with their noise.
Then we drove to the home of one of our Looper friends. The adults had a nice chat while the Lambs and their children played outside. Unfortunately Lamb 2 fell on the driveway and skinned up his ear and cheek. We patched him up as best we could. The Mamas didn't plan too well as I had brought zucchini cupcakes and she had leftover birthday cake and ice cream. But the Lambs loved ALL the dessert. The adults stayed up and talked while the Lambs attempted to go to sleep in a strange place. It was really nice to have a visit with the Mumme family even if it was a short visit. The Lambs said visiting their kids was the favorite part of the two day trip. It helped that they had neat toys!
We got up and ate breakfast and attended Matins next door to their house. Then we were on our way to Mankato, MN to the Betsy Tacy homes.
