Up 7:30 am (or thereabouts). We ate Otis Spunkmeyer strawberry shortcake muffins for breakfast, then quickly packed up for the trip to Minnesota. We had quite a few baby gifts, mostly from other people. ~ Got gas at Roman’s on the way out, 10:32 am.

Left at 10:40 am, stopped at Walgreen’s to buy Mother’s Day cards and candles (10:57). Arrived at Elizabeth’s parents’ house in Winona at 2:20 pm.

Nice but quiet visit. Elizabeth’s mom, Teresa, heated up some rotisserie chicken, made cheesy potatoes and some frozen garlic herb cauliflower; dinner was served early, around 4:30. She even made some double chocolate brownies! ~ Everyone was tired and sleepy; Elizabeth went to bed around 7 pm. We left right after that so we wouldn’t get home too late.

Left around 7:10 pm. ~ Got gas at Kwik Trip in Winona (7:19), also sodas: 7up for Wendi, Mt. Dew Pitch Black for me. ~ Drove straight through to Janesville, stopped to pick up late meal/snack at Arby’s (10:18), drove home, arriving at 10:39. ~ Unloaded van, ate dinner, got to bed around 1 am.
