Recently I attended a bridal shower for my nephew's fiancée. It took place in a small town in southern Minnesota, farm country. Husband decided to go with me, which I really appreciated, because I don't like doing all that driving by myself.
The shower took place in this town: Welcome to Welcome, population 686.
After the shower we went to my SIL and BIL's farm, and to BIL's parents' farm. It was lots of fun seeing a farm up close. I didn't see any animals other than dogs, though. (Hubby watched an interesting cattle-feeding procedure.)
I thought of Julie S. and her barn-building quilt book. Maybe I'll make a barn block based on this:
a 97 year-old farmer (BIL's father)
The middle guy is our nephew, the fiancé to the bridal shower fiancée.
In case you are wondering, yes, I have been to these farms before, but it has been several years since I actually looked around and paid attention. It was fun! My sister-in-law, who grew up in cities and towns, is happy as a clam living on a farm. It's very sweet.
