As soon as we realized that Tim would be getting MLK Day off we made plans to get out of town! Iowa City is located around 4-5 hours away from several large, fun cities. We have taken advantage of our close proximity and had many fun weekend getaways...to Chicago, St. Louis, and Kansas City...the one place we hadn't been to yet was Minneapolis! Although visiting Minnesota is the middle of this Arctic winter perhaps wasn't ideal we actually had decent weather, sunshine, and planned to be inside anyway. Minneapolis is a lot of fun! It's bigger than I expected. We had a fabulous time checking out the Mall of America, the biggest mall in the USA, riding roller coasters at their indoor amusement park and doing a little shopping. Love getting away and spending time with our little family!
