Explore Minnesota!

Tuesday, August 23, 2011

I was looking for a post in my drafts - and I love this guest post I did for the now defunct blog Life As Eye See It....so the link probably takes you no where now.  Don't you hate it when you lose a blogger?

sigh.

Here is MY Minnesota from the post I wrote in April of 2010.

So I created a guest post for Eye Girl at Life As Eye See It.

VERY exciting.

So today I am going to present to you:

and my little corner of it is right here...



Our home is 104 years old and I have been piece by piece creating a home that fits us all and a garden that I can enjoy.... 



I live on one of the gorgeous parkways that are a part of the National Registry of Scenic Byways.  Since Boo Boo La La was a baby I have taken her for walks down the parkway. 

In the cold of January, bundeled up!
In the HEAT of August, sunscreened and water never far from hand.

My parents raised us here in Minnesota and always tried to take us to fun & educational events.  I continue the tradition with Boo Boo La La by going to shows like...



DISNEY LIVE! - we have also seen Nemo On Ice and a really cute Mickey Mouse Adventure on Ice too.

Then there is the really cool Hopkins Stages Theatre where we have seen several shows including; Alice In Wonderland, The Paper Bag Princess, Snowy Day, and The Wizard of Oz.

My Dear Friends Mr. & Mrs. Wagner took us to a fun show at Orchestra Hall...Isnt' it BEAUTIFUL?



Another place we go to A LOT is The Minnesota Zoo.  We have a membership and spend time there with our friends - Miss J, Miss K & Mr. M, and Miss M.  We even Trick Or Treat at the zoo!


We also spend a GREAT deal of time at our local YMCA...especially now that they have the "Splash Pad"!



Then there is the VERY best thing of all - our family vacation each August to Breezy Point Resort.



And Camping...

And Snowboarding... 

And SLEDDING! 








And of course our annual snowmobile trip...vroom!



And we appreciate all that Minnesota has to offer - both Winter & Summer. 
I hope you enjoyed your little trip to our town.

Looks like a fun place and the splash pad would be a hit here. We would have to be summer Minnesotans though--the winters in the NE are not my fav and the cold weather there would be tough for this thin skinned goofball.

I miss Life As Eye See It. There was a particular post I'd bookmarked because I enjoyed it so much and now it's gone forever.

She has a new blog/website now for her photography business. If you don't have it already, let me know and I'll share it with you. I'm guessing you probably have it.

I remember Life As Eye See It. I always mourne the loss of a fellow blogger.

Looks like all kinds of summer and winter fun.

Hey there! I'm a Minnesotan too! Found you from Mama Kat's...I'm not a huge fan of bacon, but I do love my BLT's :)
