Yesterday I went on a mini adventure with my dad, brother, and sister!
We got lost for a little bit, but then we found a “pick your own sweetcorn” patch and we got 5 dozen ears for $10! Way better than the 1 dozen for $3 at the grocery store (and that’s on sale!).
Then we went to the dam and had strawberry cream pie at the “famous” Dam Cafe. Though to be completely honest I don’t see how it’s any sort of tourist attraction because it’s weird and messy and literally just the front porch area of a house with a counter and two booths. The pie was good though!
We watch some people fishing at the base of the dam for a while and I was getting really pissed that I wasn’t fishing too. I LOVE fishing. But we didn’t bring any fishing stuff and I don’t think any of us even got our licenses this year. We live in the land of 10,000 lakes but the city we live in now is literally the first city we’ve EVER lived in that does NOT have a lake! It has two rivers… neither of which I would ever eat fish from because they’re super polluted. It’s mostly just catch and release kind of fishing around here.
Anyway. We had a fun random adventure on a very beautiful day. Now that all of us siblings are older, we get along much better. The littlest one still has some mental catching up to do (no physical catching up, as she’s already taller than me!) but we’ll get there in time!
