I don't expect to win the drawing, but they have occasional bonus freebees that I have been able to get in on. For being consistent in riding through September and October, I scored tickets to a Timberwolves game. For riding on some of the coldest days in January, I received tickets to take my family to the Minneapolis Home and Garden Show, which we were able to attend a few weeks ago. It was so nice to get out of the house, take the twins to do something other than for a walk at the mall on a Saturday, and fantasize about summer gardening and other projects around the house. As the first day of spring has passed this week and winter's chill continues to hang on, I keep riding and waiting for warmer days and wearing fewer layers.
|Can't imagine someone putting a Moai Easter Island statue|
in their yard, but it was a fun feature at the garden show.
|The Minneapolis Convention Center has a spacey view, that was fascinating to our twins.|
|They also loved seeing the large crowds of people. I think we were like most of these folks, zombies from our wintery world trying to forget that all this green was contained in a climate controlled convention center.|
|Love the willows(Salix caprea).|
|Everybody needs big bundles of twigs.|
