Blast from the Past - Silly Family Fun

Last week's Blast from the Past was a review of our visit to Taliesin. This week I will continue to reminisce about that family vacation. After our stop in Wisconsin, we carried on to Minneapolis and paid a (too)short visit to the Mall of America.

I can't even tell you how much I wanted a moose like this for my living room.

One of the two main attractions for us at MOA - the Lego store area!

Our other main attraction was the Bubba Gump Shrimp Company where we had lunch (or maybe dinner, I can't remember what time of day it was).

On the road again - Kennady had her friend KimPossible along -

My aunts live in Winnipeg, and my parents and sister met us there.  One of our jobs while staying with my aunts was to paint their living room for them.  It was lots of fun!

Couple cute pictures of Kennady while at my aunts' place:

One day we went down to The Forks, which is a market and historical site area in Winnipeg.  We let the boys climb around on these ---- things ----- I no longer have any recollection of what they were, other than that it had something to do with the First Nations....

There's also a museum nearby - again, my memory is unreliable so I don't know what it was called, but I found these pictures of the kids that we'd taken there:

Spencer is NEVER that happy about having his picture taken any more!

Back at the house, Kennady got to help Auntie Alice bake bread -

We tried getting all the cousins together in the back yard for a picture - what an exercise in futility...

this one is the best we could manage:

Just before we headed back home, we got a picture of our family with Auntie Alice and Auntie Linda.

Great post. It is great to look back on family vacations and enjoy looking at the kids and events that were so relaxing and fun. I have very few Aunts left. Most of my parents siblings and their spouses have died. Those that are left I never see. I have a lot of memories of a few of my Aunts and Uncles from when I was younger... and cousins too. Thanks for linking up!

I love comments! It's like visiting over a virtual cup of coffee.
