We tearfully said goodbye to Cap’n Butch and Miss Juli at the lake, and headed on down to Minneapolis. What a great college town! Joe, Dan, and Ed
It was fun to see Kate and Paul in their element. They were right at home here in MN and enjoyed visiting old hangouts! So neat.
Of course we had to visit the Mall of America!!! Blue was there to welcome us inside!
We rode a couple of rides, but nothing too crazy…we wanted to get back to the hotel and hit up the indoor water park.
Dude, how cool is this water park inside our hotel??!! We stayed at the Depot Renaissance in downtown Minneapolis. It was an old train station that had been converted to a hotel. Such COOL memorabilia everywhere.
We had a blast! (Ben, Ethan, and Drew with Dad)
They loved this and kept asking Joe to help them push up the water!
Check out this awesome video!
Sav and I BATTLED this week. I don’t know why she was being exceptionally “difficult”, but it’s a good thing I brought my book along for moral support (although I didn’t crack it open once).
This picture was taken after she was banned from sharing the bed with Ben and had to sleep on her napmat on the floor. Then she was banned from the kid room and had to come to our room on her napmat. Then her princess nightgown was taken away (don’t worry, it was ridiculously hot in our room). Then her napmat was taken away and she had to sleep on the bed with nothing. After crying in anger for about 3 minutes, she finally passed out. She’s a tough one, this girl. WEARS ME OUT.
Next up: the Twin’s game at Target Field! SO MUCH FUN!
