Went to Minneapolis for the weekend!

Last night I was to tired and it was to late to post about my travels. On this trip my wife and her family met up in Minneapolis MN for one of their cousin's wedding. We got to spend most of the day last Saturday visiting the sites. My favorite sites there is the Minneapolis Sculpture Gardens. We did not get to visit but a part of the gardens and museums, on our next trip we will visit the rest. Here are some pictures of the gardens.

"Big Damn Spoon with a Cherry on Top!"


  1. I recently did a post on the Meijer Gardens and Sculpture Park in Grand Rapids Michigan. On my next article about it you will see a picture of a huge garden trowel sculpture. I wonder if it was down by the same couple (husband and wife, don't know their name off hand) who did your spoon. I know they only do kitchen tools, etc.

  2. Our trip to the garden was just a quick one. Our cousin wanted to give us a quick tour before going to the wedding. I will see if I can out more.

  3. Isn't it wonderful? I remember taking fieldtrips there when I was growing up. It's a wonderful place, and credited as being tops in the world in many landscape design books that survey the field. On to other things, my wife and I honeymooned down near Ixtapa, in Zihuatanejo (at La Casa Que Canta) in January--a fab fab fab luxury hotel, but we'd like to see more of Mexico, so thanks for the tip.
