We bought season passes to Valleyfair and, during our visit, we spent quite a bit of time at the foam ball factory. Lucy also got a chance to go on her first carousel ride.

On Friday evening, we drove to Lake Harriet to hang out at the bandshell and listen to a xylophone/marimba band. The high spots were looking at ducks, looking at sailboats, dancing to marimba music and just generally running around.
