Birthday Weekend

My family and I had so much fun celebrating birthdays last weekend!
To get a full recap of Carson's, click here.
My birthday was the day after Carson's.  I had been wanting to check out Stillwater for a long time, and it proved to be so much fun!
Stillwater is a little town about 30 minutes from Minneapolis and a very touristy destination. 
It is right on the St. Croix River and is home to one of the last three lift bridges in the U.S.
We walked across the bridge into Wisconsin (first time to set foot there!)

We went to Leo's Diner for lunch.  It has the most delicious cheese curds...never thought I'd say that!

We had a fun afternoon window shopping around Main Street and enjoying the nice weather.  Next time, we'll have to try the trolley tour and Nelson's ice cream!

On Saturday we checked out Minnehaha Falls.
I had heard great things about this waterfall located right in the middle of the city.
It really was beautiful and we had fun hiking down to the bottom of the waterfall and walking along the river.

We had such a fun weekend with you guys! Can't wait to see you Saturday in Orlando!!!
