Just a few pictures to catch you up to where we've been. On the way to St Paul for the FMCA Rally, we spent one night at a friends farm in Eau Claire, WI. After that we spent a few nights in Red Wing, Minnesota, at the Treasure Island Casino and RV Park. Marcie's brother and sister-in-law, Gene and Linda, met up with us again there and went to the next rally with us. Don and Gayle also joined all of us there and our 5 coaches caravaned into St Paul together.

The FMCA Rally was a lot of fun with over 2600 motorhomes in attendance. At the CAT Business Meeting, Danny was elected President of the CAT RV Club which is a chapter of the FMCA (Family Motor Coach Assn).

We enjoyed some sightseeing in St Paul and Minneapolis. Pictures of some of the places we went are above. We couldn't park and take pictures of everything, such as the television home of Mary Tyler Moore, Milwaukee Train Depot, Orchestra Hall and the Minnesota State Capitol. We saw St Anthony Falls and Minnehaha Falls, right in the city. Minnehaha Creek flows from Lake Minnetonka through the western suburbs of Minneapolis and into the city, dives over the falls (53 feet)and into the Mississippi River. The

Cathedral of St Paul is older than Minneapolis and built in the Classical Renaissance style of architecture, the cathedral doom is modeled after St Peter's Basilica in Rome.

We found the Twin Cities very fascinating.
