Our Summer Vacation (#1)

I took 238 pictures during our week long vacation in Minnesota and spent quite a bit of time deleting the not so great ones off the camera to fit more and more! (Monica took some of them too.) Now I have a bit of work ahead of me to organize and show off the best ones.  We had several different stops during our travels - St. Paul visiting with Monica's family, Paul Bunyan Land in Brainerd, Kee Nee Moo Sha on Woman Lake in Hackensack, a day at Pine Beach Resort in Nevis, and the trip back to the Twin Cities to fly home. All this to say that this will only be the first installment of several for our vacation photos.

On the day of our arrival we spent the afternoon at the Minnesota Children's Museum in St. Paul with Monica's brother Paul (aka Uncle Pauly) and her niece Janna.  That's Benji driving the two of them on the bus:
Danny spent a few minutes in the dog house pretending to be a dog and then he said to Uncle, "OK, now you be a person!"  He makes a pretty good person, that Uncle!

The construction crane was also a big hit with the boys.  Thanks to Janna's help they were able to lift the I-Beam up onto a truck:
Even Monica (lower left) gave it a try while the boys raced off to other endeavors.

The Curious George room was so fun we had to go there twice! (Yes, thus lots of pictures.)

And this was just the first 2 hours of our vacation! Really! There are more Children's Museum pictures (after all, there was water play and a rooftop garden with a climbing structure, the opportunity to be a turtle, etc, etc) but check back for Our Summer Vacation (#2): Paul Bunyan Land.
