My Favorite Day-- Minnnehaha Falls

I love playing tourist in our home town! We're so lucky to live in the Twin Cities. There is so much to see and do here.

One of our favorite places to visit is Minnehaha Falls.

A nibble and then some at Sea Salt Eatery at the park. I haven't had a Po'Boy like this since I lived in South Carolina. Never thought I would say my favorite seafood restaurant is land locked! It's only open seasonally. I've just got to get there one more time this season!

That's the mighty Mississippi. Hard to believe its the same one you can walk across in Itasca and the same muddy one that ambles past Memphis (where Young One was born).

A stop at Izzy's for ice cream. Their Salted Caramel Ice Cream can only be described as other worldly. I thank God every day that they are a 20 minute drive from my house. Far enough away that I'd have to plan for it and close enough that I can actually get in there from time to time! If you don't know what an Izzy is, it's that little taste-size scoop on top of the big scoop. It's great for those of us who can't make up their minds.

We spent last Sunday just wandering and hanging out together. Definitely one of my favorite days.


  1. Yum that cone looks great. Looks like a beautiful place, enjoy the fall.

  2. It looks AMAZING and the waterfalls weren't to bad either :):)

    I have to tell you I'm impressed with the word Po'boy.
    Man I miss those things!


I triple dog dare you to comment.

Taking a little time to play with words, to play with food, and just to play!
