Wordy Wednesday

We thought we would tell you what some of the pictures are in the post below. The waterfall is in Minnehaha Park, and is, of course, Minnehaha Falls. The beautiful dandelion fountain is in the park near our old home. The park pictures around there are from the park, too, called Loring Park. The big pictures on the building?  That is the Guthrie Theater, which was named for Tyrone Guthrie, its just a few blocks from us, and across the river.  The river is of course, the Mississippi River. This theater is fairly new.  They tore down the old one which used to be a couple of blocks from where we used to live. I guess they followed us.  Or did we follow them?
Have you checked out the ducks?  They live in Loring Lake. Live feavers! Just before the Guthrie you see our famous Stone Arch Bridge. It is modelled after the roman viaducts and is, of course, of stone, as apposed to the rest of our bridges, which are just modern bridges. The dark pictures are of the bridges across the Mississippi River. And the church in the dark, all lit up, is one of our first churches, and is across a cool market place by the river. The one in the first part of the slides is St Mary's Basillica, which is on the north side of Loring Park. Oh and you saw a big mushroomy building in the pictures. That is called the Metrodome.  Our baseball team used to play there, and now they have an outdoor park. And if you look really quick at some of the restaurant pictures you will see Brett Favre, Number 4, who used to play for the Green Bay Wisconsin Packer football team, and now plays for the Minnesota Viking team. He is on one of the televisions in the background.
Sorry it's so jumbled.
You can show off your own city.  Milo and Alfie's mom have a slide show of their town, and we have to say, it is very beautiful and charming and we envy them very much!
