Time in Minneapolis


Friday afternoon we headed to downtown Minneapolis, bummed around and had a BLAST!!

The girls loved all the shiny buildings, fountains, escalators, elevators and American flags.



They also got a kick out of the big windows, big buses and the busy-ness of all the different people.

The skyways were a big hit too,

and so was checking out different statues (Go Minnesota Twins) .....

..... and climbing under them : )

The art gallery featuring Dr. Seaus art was really neat .....

...... and meeting different people on the streets was really interesting.

Visiting Candy Land was a definite highlight for the girls ....

..... but going to the ROOF of this building -- the Wells Fargo Building -- 57 stories HIGH ....

.... was the definite highlight for their Dad. Seriously, we were waaaaaay up there.

It was windy, it was super high, it was a really really neat experience and the view was pretty crazy:


Before we headed home we stopped for a bite to eat (yummy, yummy flatbread sandwiches) ......


.... and while driving home we all agreed, We LOVE Minneapolis!!
The gold building is the Wells Fargo Building, where we went to the roof, and is the 3rd tallest building in downtown Minneapolis.
