Picture Perfect Day
On beautiful Sunday, my youngest progeny and I went canoeing with our pal MG on Lake Calhoun, Cedar Lake, and Lake of the Isles. You wouldn't believe how much natural beauty there is to enjoy right in the heart of metro Minneapolis! The pic to the left shows an aerial view of the canoe rental landing - near the large red roofed pavillion. If you live in the area and haven't done this yet, go do it RIGHT NOW!!
The weather was picture perfect, and although MG squealed like a girl that we were certain to get swamped and therefore soaking wet, nothing of the sort happened. We put the 9-year-old in the middle where she enjoyed the ride while dragging her fingertips in the cool water. Afterward it was over to Sebastian Joe's for homemade ice cream. I showed how middle-age-'tarded I am by walking halfway across the parking lot in two different shoes - my water sandals and my "normal" sandals. I remember thinking that the sidewalks were certainly poured crooked on that side of town. Fun day.
