A Wild Rumpus in Minneapolis-St. Paul

Hey Everybody,

We had a great time in the Twin Cities, Minneapolis-St. Paul, MN, this summer. And thanks to some great suggestions from my Blueboarder buddies about fun places to visit and things to do, we found an awesome children’s bookstore along the way…

…complete with its own resident rooster! (He was a bit camera-shy.)

They had an iguana, too, who was NOT, I repeat, NOT overweight.

We also had fun

  • at Fort Snelling, a completely-restored 1820s military fort filled with lots of costumed interpreters who know their stuff
  • renting bikes and touring Lake Harriett
  • bowling at Earle Brown’s near Brooklyn Center, MN
  • watching “Sweet Revenge,” a hilarious melodrama staged by students of the University of Minnesota. It was performed on the Mississippi Centennial Showboat on Harriett Island in St. Paul. It was worth the trip by itself. Well, this and the rooster.
  • fishing at Twin Lakes

I could go on, but I won’t. We made lots of great memories. Thanks for being super hosts, Twin Cities!

Friends, drop me a line and let me know what you did this summer for vacation!
