We decided to get even more involved in the culture of Minneapolis and head to a Twins game. This was Randall and Henry’s first major league baseball game. As a teenager I went to see the Cubs, Rangers and Royals. The Twins were actually playing the Royals on this night.
We live in the delta and have great respect for the Mighty Mississippi and all it stands for in our area of the world. Minneapolis has more bridges across the Mississippi River than any other community, including suspension, stone arch, steel truss, and concrete-arch bridges. It’s also the site of the first bridge across the Mississippi. Henry is sitting at the site of that first bridge.
Henry and Randall are standing in front of the Mississippi River in downtown Minneapolis.
The large bridge behind us is the one that was built to replace the bridge that collapsed in August 2007 during rush hour. I remember that day and the sights on the evening news. So sad and so scary. 9 people died.
We had such a fun time exploring the mill city area of Minneapolis.
