Do you remember “build it and they will come” from the movie “Field of Dreams?” Well, that certainly applies to children. If you build a safe place where they can knock over things already built . . . or build more things to knock over… the kids will come. I’m certainly not promoting destruction of valuable things, but the fun these children were having was amazing to watch. I wish I had a video camera going, but you can see it in their eyes and faces – they are having fun!
This particular demolition was at Lake Harriet in south Minneapolis. It was the Winter Kite Flying Festival near the Pavilion. Families flocked to this “happening” even though it was pretty cold and the wind wasn’t great for flying. My favorite “food trucks” were there… none in particular, but I just love food trucks and the variety they bring is fabulous! There was one truck there who had not a footlong “hotdog”, but a footlong “eggroll”. Pretty good stuff.
Yes. Minnesota families even love winter, especially with the opportunity to fly a kite or knock down boxes! We’ve had a strange winter, at times very cold or lots of snow or icy sidewalks, but we wouldn’t change it! I think. Now at the end of the winter we get some beautiful snow, with the white stuff softening every man made feature, like hydrants, bus stop shelters, bridges, bushes and, of course, the barbeque grill! See you next winter!
