My MiniBreak So Far
 

So I am typing this as Heidi drives us to Minneapolis for the day and evening. I just wanted to get a quick post up with some updates on my mini-break. Photos soon!

Upon arriving we went to the Mall of America, where we did some shopping and rode some coasters. One of them was impressive for a coaster In a shopping mall!

I broke down and bought some of those Sketchers Shape-Ups. I have had pretty poor shoes lately un terms of support, so I wanna see if these do what they advertise. I just thought they helped your back, but they are supposed to tighten the buttocks and your abs as well. We’ll see!

We spent two days in Wisconsin Dells at the Great Wolfe Lodge water park. It was so empty that we walked onto every waterside and ride. We also did a number of other things like Wizard’s Quest, Magi Quest and the Ripley’s Believe it or Not museum.

On the way back from the Dells we hit this place called The House on the Rock, a unique house built on an old Indian Rock Shelter by this guy who collected anything and everything. He had guns, cars, armor, dolls and dollhouses, pipe organs and a giant carousel. Very neat place, the dolls were a bit creepy though.

We hit their hometown nightspot Friday night, The Wild Moose. This band Jonah and the Whales was playing. I got a bigger kick out of the two Asian/Malaysian drag queens on the dance floor dresses up like they were some anime super heroes or something.

Tonight we hit Minneapolis. Actually today. We are on our way now. Hoping to see a museum or two, have yummy food, then go dancing.

It sounds like a great vacation. You’ll have to let me know about the Skechers- I’ve been thinking about getting them too.

I have the Sketchers. I bought them while I was still working in the hospital. Working 12 hour shifts, I could feel it in my thighs, butt, and lower back. Since I’ve stopped working those hours, I don’t notice much difference. I’ll be curious to hear what you think of them.

I love House on the Rock. Its been awhile since I’ve been there, but they used to have a room dedicated to old circus clowns. Scared the crap out of me! They looked like Pennywise from “It”. I’m sure that room is partly to blame for my clown phobia.

Glad to hear that you had a good time on your mini-vacation 🙂
