We went to Duluth to celebrate our 11th anniversary. Brought the kids, of course! Here are some highlights:
Coming into Duluth was exciting. Marosa was screaming her head off, we were late, and the kids were winey and tired. Lee was trying to console Marosa while I drove as fast as I could. Lee complained it was too hot, so I lowered both the front windows. Boy, Duluth is a lot colder than home! We got cold, fast... that's when my window decided to get stuck down. Brrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!!
Luckily, once in town, my window slowly went back up. Interestingly, that got all the kids to shut up and calm down in a hurry. We checked into the hotel for a good nights sleep.
Lake Superior was breath-taking. Ice still bobbed up and down in the harbor.
We went to the Great Lakes Aquarium. The hands down favorite was touching the sting-rays. Here's the clan watching some ducks and fish:
Of course, the most famous part of Duluth is the lift bridge. Here's Alex admiring it:
We even got to see a ship go under!! Here is the ship coming into the harbor:

We also visited the Great Lakes Zoo. We awed at the lions:
We had a blast with the polar bear! He threw the ball up to us. We tossed it back. The zookeeper gave all the kids stickers saying "we played ball with a polar bear." Very cool.
Something tells me we will have to visit Duluth again someday...
