Where I stayed
Joel & Lisa's House

Today we went to Joel & Lisa's house for a couple of days.  As you will see by the pictures we had a wonderful day visiting Minneapolis.  We first went to Mariucci Arena at the Univ. of Minn to see where the hockey teams plays.  Took a tour of the arena with Lisa as guide.....very interesting to us.  Then walked over to the brand new football stadium.  For lunch we went to Manning's Bar for some delicious hamburgers.  They gave us a tour of Minneapolis and the beautiful parks and lakes around the city.

In the evening we headed back to Minneapolis as they had bought tickets for the Twins game.  Had such great seats right above homeplate.  It was a wonderful evening and Target Stadium is very beautiful.  Had a grand time and the Twins won too!

A funny story to end our day:   Earlier in the day Joel and remarked that he needed to get gas.
When we went to the game, we parked in a parking garage and then headed to the game in downtown Minneapolis.  After the game, got back to the car....and you can guess what happened next.  Car wouldn't start.  Too say the least, Lisa was a little disgusted with Joel.  He called AAA and we waited for the tow truck to bring gas.  We all laughed over it and on the way home Lisa made Joel stop at a gas station to fill it. 

It was a fun day and we so enjoyed spending it with our friends.

Hope you enjoy the pictures.

Wayne and Toni on

Dear George and Maggie, You make us envious--running all over the country--staying in fancy motels--taking afternoon swims--probably eating high on the hog--having fun with your friends...but we are happy for you, and enjoy your pictures and messages. Hope George is behaving himself.
