Minneapolis – Day 2

I woke up to a cloudy morning with the rain drizzling down.  I went for a walk around the hotel to get some fresh air and a bit of exercise.  I just pretended I had Chester walking with me.  Chester meanwhile was safe at home with my daughter looking after him.

I love the Children’s Museum in Winnipeg and when I found out that Hazel and Olivia had never been to the one here, I suggested that we spend some time exploring what they had.  Since dinosaurs were featured, Olivia was excited about going to see them.  I know we didn’t see everything – but we sure covered a lot of the areas there.  Olivia was exhausted by the time we left – but she sure had a lot of fun.  It was hard to get her to stop moving long enough to snap a few pics and I have quite a few blurs – but it was great seeing her have so much fun.  I’m pretty sure that they will be back.  I won’t mention the drive to get there  😉  but I’m pretty sure Hazel with find a shorter route when they return.

There were lots of bubble making toys available, but this lady knew how to blow a bubble out of her hand and she could pass it over to the children.

We spent about 3 hours at the Children’s Museum.  Then we stopped at Taco Time for a quick meal and spent the evening relaxing at Hazel’s place.  We talked and just hung out as we continued to get to know each other a little more.  Over the years we have obviously been able to get to know each other very well – but there is nothing like an in person relationship.  🙂
