While Sir Francis Drake was here visiting us, he insisted on being taken around town. We were easily swayed & took him to a few of our favorite spots.
We started with a trip to my old stomping grounds:
We may have parked illegally & ran to snap this picture. Sir Drake was rumored to be a bit of a pirate, which might explain why he encouraged that bit of risk taking.
Our next stop was a favorite hangout of ours:
We love the library & I think Sir Drake was impressed with how nice our librarians are.
Feeling a bit adventurous, the boys & I took Sir Drake to our river:
Look it's dark & we are out! This is the Red River. It separates Moorhead (Minnesota) & Fargo (North Dakota). The boys & Sir Drake jumped back & forth between state lines a few times.
Venturing out some more, we took Sir Drake to my parents house:
The live right next to a horse farm. This is as close as Sir Drake got to riding anything though. He was also very impressed with my Dad's carrots:
Are they bigger than Sir Drake? After this we send Sir Drake off to more adventures.
