Not So Big Day 4 in the City of Big Shoulders

Sunday. We slept in (yeah, didn’t go to church).

By Noon we headed out for the now routine finding of a Starbucks for breakfast. We had planed ahead this time and now knew what bus to take to the Museum.

Very cool museum. We got to walk on “Yesterday’s Main Street” a cobble stone street with turn of the century storefronts. It had an old movie theater playing films that were before “talkies.”

We got to look at a large dollhouse that was a Fairy Castle. It had paintings on its little walls that represented different fairy stories. It had super small books that were the smallest every made. (the smallest bible every made) It had artifacts that were thousands of years old. Things like Cinderella’s glass slipper It was actually quite incredible. In fact, click here to see a virtual tour.

There was a full U-boat from World War II. You could tour this (although we did not).

We headed back early because we had to get up really early the next day. So after a great shrimp dinner at the Rainforest Cafe, we called it a night.

    Deb, I loved that museum. I went there a few years ago. I remember there was over two feet of snow on the ground, and it was so cold you couldn’t show skin. The town was beautiful lit up with lights. I remember watching the ice skaters skate in the snow, I had pink eye so I didnt skate haha. But what a fun little town! Sounds like you had a wonderful trip.

    I just bought Switchfoot’s newest album. I thought that it is awesome.

    We had a spectacular time! (and I am not even finished telling about our last 2 days.) Yeah, Mitchell, I totally agree. Switchfoot’s new album is great.
