My first visit to Minnesota was on a trip to South Dakota in 1971
I didn't return to the state until my family moved to Wisconsin in 1984.
Tomah was about an hour's drive from the Minnesota state line and we visited the state a lot.We saw some baseball games in Minneapolis and went to the ice festival.
This is the ice castle at the ice festival in 1986. Zac and Pete were cold !!
My mother visited us in Wisconsin. Here she is with two of her grand children at a park in Minneapolis on the way to the airport.
