Yesterday was May Day and it was an (almost) perfect day to go to the opening of the Mankato Farmer's Market. Almost perfect because it was pretty windy and so Ian went to sit in the car with Grampa after a quick go through. He did enjoy his mini donuts though.

Linda bought some prairie grass and phlox to plant in her yard while I perused some hand-spun from a young woman who spins from her own sheep. I asked if she was going to the Sheep and Wool festival next weekend and she said yes, but unlike the previous year, she was Not going to bring 3 sheep home with her. We also bought some asparagus that we later had on the grill with a leg of lamb while we drank mint juleps and watched the two minutes that is the Kentucky Derby.

Before the Derby (and a wonderful two-hour nap that was well needed by Ian's alter-ego, Super Naughty) we watched the annual motorcycle parade that is put on by the Minnesota chapter of ABATE. When Ian wasn't trying to run into traffic he enjoyed all of the bikes.

This the three of us got up, watched Shrek, read the paper and had donuts. Pretty sweet-filled weekend so far.
