The second day of our Minneapolis/St. Paul trip was one of my favorites.
Oftentimes on vacation everyone is lazy and getting up and about takes longer. That’s what happened and since it was a weekday we completely missed the restaurants’ breakfast window.
The gardens were beautiful and there were pretty birds all around. Unfortunately I don’t have a picture of the birds because toddlers kept scaring them away :(.
Next we drove out to an area called Linden Hills, it reminded me of the Hillsboro Village area in Nashville.
Our whole family thoroughly enjoys childrens books and bookstores so a bookstore devoted to children was heaven. It even had a mini door I walked through. They had picture books, MG fiction, YA fiction and even some adult offerings. I came away with a list of new books to read.
Later that day we explored an area called West End Boulevard, this area reminded me of Nashville’s Green Hills. It had lots of elegant boutiques and specialty stores.
Then we went into Apricot Lane Boutique and a painting place called Brush Studios, just to look around.
Later that night, very late in fact we had pizza delivered to the hotel room. Unfortunately I was so tired I didn’t take a picture of it and no one remembers the name of the restaurant. It was good though.
Stay fly and stay tuned for Day 3
