Minneapolis, United States

Howdy from the north!
Currently Gavin and I are staying at my Uncle Jim and Aunt Jodel's home, which is about 40 minutes outside of Minneapolis. It's so great to see family along the way, to remind us that we're loved and supported. We got here on Sunday, and Monday afternoon they took us down to the Twin Cities. It was Memorial Day weekend so everyone was outside playing, grilling, and enjoying the lovely weather. First we all went to the conservatory in St Paul, and then walked over to the Como Zoo. I hadn't been to a zoo since I was a kid so I really enjoyed myself. Then Jim and Jodel drove us up to St Paul's downtown, and Minneapolis's as well. The architecture in Minneapolis is so unique, I've never seen a city play with shape and color like that. We parked and walked over to the Walker Museum sculpture garden, which we both really enjoyed. Most of the sculptures in this garden are made out of brass and steel but the detail in them makes them look quite lifelike. It was the perfect day that ended with the perfect meal.
Jodel made her family famous "Snow on the Mountain." Which is basically a whole bunch of goodness piled on a plate. Fruits, vegetables, meats, and cheese are piled on top of basmati rice, topped with soy sauce. Needless to say, it was delicious!!
I'm so glad we had the opportunity to stop here and spend time with them. They're such amazing people that I am blessed to call my family.
