We had about a 4 hour drive to Minneapolis today and it was a windy one. I wanted to grab a workout before we left Sioux Falls, so Kelly and the boys went bowling while I ran to the gym. They wanted to go last night, but we didn't get there in time. We got on the road around noon.

We got into the RV park around 4pm and got set up. One of the main reasons we decided to spend the weekend here is to see our friends Dan and Deb Chinander. Dan is the producer who recently finished his first film and is in the works to start a second. They've lived in South Florida for a few years, but just moved back to Minnesota.

Once we got set up and I washed the 'house'(RV), we went downtown to the Twins/Athletics baseball game. However, once we got there and got seats, it was a little disappointing being in a dome.(an old dome) We got a little spoiled going to games in San Diego and San Francisco. They had beautiful new, outdoor stadiums. The Twins play in the same dome that the Vikings play in and it's pretty old. Anyway, we left early and drove around downtown a bit. I had talked to Dan earlier and found out he was going to be at the game with his daughter. We caught up with them before we left the game.

Kelly and I were pretty impressed with the skyline downtown. We've seen most of the major U.S. cities, but Minneapolis has some great architecture. It definitely stands apart from most others. The building are each very unique, but they're laid out in a way that looks very symmetrical when you look at it from far away.

Minneapolis
Hey Guys,

I have been in Minneapolis once but stayed near the airport and meeting was in a residence in Edina (about ten minutes from airport). I stayed across from the huge Mall of America but never walked across the street to shop/tour. While there, I did hear the downtown is supposed to be pretty clean and full of nice folks.

Please tell Dan and Deb that I said hello. Also, John Workman and his mother loved his movie. John Boswell had a bunch of folks over they played it for everyone. John said there was not a dry eye in the house.

Oh, Brundi and family were enroute to Anchorage yesterday for a seven night Alaskan cruise and had to overnight in Salt Lake City. It was there first time in Utah. They loved the mountain ranges and can only imagine how beautiful it is during winter months. So, they may want to visit your PCU home!

Ben
