My parents came to visit us this summer. Since this was their very first trip to Minnesota, we of course, had to go site-seeing.
|Ferry ride on the Mississippi|
|My favorite part was the lock system in which the ferry was able to move from a higher|
to a lower level (or vice versa) by raising or lowering the water levels. It was fun to
watch the Ferry start to rise in the lock!
|Lolas Lakehouse (restaurant on Lake Waconia).|
|Since my parents visited over the 4th of July, we went to the beach on the lake to |
watch the fireworks. I just love this picture my dad took as the sun was going down!
|Breakfast I made for mom and dad.|
|This is my favorite picture (taken by my dad) of a little church near our house. |
It so reminds me of the Robert Frost poem with the "two roads diverging" and all.
|The architectural details were really neat|
