a weekend touring our own city

Clay, Parker and I were so excited when we found out that Taylor and Fair were flying in for a weekend trip to Minnesota. Knowing that two days would pass by far too quickly, I typed up a tentative itinerary for the weekend. We actually got to check off everything on that list plus visit a few other places; believe it or not, we also had a little down time at the house on Friday too.

Here are just a few of the pictures and memories from the weekend...

Downtown Minneapolis

Taking a coffee break at Nicollet Mall downtown

Visiting St. Paul's Cathedral, the Capitol building, and Grand Ave

A kiss on frozen Lake Nokomis

Sledding in uptown

A visit to Minnehaha Falls at Minnehaha Park

This waterfall is one of our favs to visit in the spring, summer, fall and winter...with each visit you leave with a completely different view of it

I don't know how she did it, but Fair got a perfect pose with the little fellow!

It was late one night, but I snagged a quick picture of Taylor and me
I can't wait to print all the pics out from the weekend! It was so much fun for both families. Some of the coolest adventures are found when you become a tourist of your own city.

Taylor and Fair, thank you so much for coming and visiting us up North. I know with ya'll's busy schedules it was a huge sacrifice; we appreciate ya'll wanting to spend time with us though! It was a wonderful that we would love to repeat in the summer without the snowboots! ha ha! We love you two so much and wish you a wonderful season in your new home(s).   :) Once again, we couldn't be happier for ya'll. Until next time...
