The workers and clientele were the key to a successful trip. Well, to be fair, the three guys that were there when we arrived were a bit different.
Different as in normal.

For some reason, the kids thought looking at the washing machines was exciting despite the fact that they’ve had one at their house their entire lives.
I think this one is actually okay to climb.

The highlight was definitely Deep Purple’s Smoke on the Water
Helena had to go to the History Center to get suggestions on how to improve her History Day project, so we walked around afterward. Here she is with one of Minnesota’s favourite sons. The kids seemed to like learning about the I-35W bridge collapse the best.
Helena getting called up because her presentation is moving on to the citywide level.
No, this isn’t her entire class!
Ada was Helen Keller for wax museum day. Parents would come by and touch her thumb to hear her story.
As you can probably tell, Ada wasn’t the loudest one in the room! But she did very well and many parents did get to learn something about Helen.
The photo above has King Tut in the foreground, although it looks like it might be Joseph Merrick.
Helena had her first band concert at the high school, but playing with the 7th and 8th grade Lake Harriet Orchestra.
We’ll remember it as the night when she locked my keys in my car, though. She had walked out of the car without the clarinet, so she asked for my keys. I waited by the school door for her. When she walked in she said, “Do you have your spare key?”
We lost 8-1 to another Minnesota team from Austin, but the kids had a good time.
No better way to spend the day historically the coldest day of the year in Minneapolis than to walk (twice, since it was closed the first time) to get frozen yogurt.
