Our Trip to the Cities Part 1

Last weekend was LEFSE weekend at Grandma Linka's house so that means Friday night ricing potatoes and Saturday night lots of work {and fun!} to be done! On Saturday day Linka has to turn all of the potatoes into lefse balls which means there is no room for 20 little fingers which in turn means that we got out and explored the cities. The only disappointing part was that Grandma and Grandpa didn't get to come with us!
We started at Bandana Square and watched a lot of trains travel through the twin cities.
This area was Pete's favorite- it had lots of tunnels, snow (it was made to look like where Grumpy Old Men was made) and the train stopped and the kids got to push a button on the railing to make it go, to make lights work and the gates go up and down at the railway stop.
Downtown was also depicted complete with a trolley car:
As well as the river:

There were all different sorts of trains running around, passenger trains, steam and diesel trains, some fast and some slow. They also had train tables set up in front that Pete spent a good amount of time playing on as well. All in all a fun first part of our little vacation!
