Meeting Elder Smith

Colin autographed my copy of the program.

I gave Dan a trip to Minneapolis for his Birthday and we went this past weekend! We stayed at the W Hotel using our Starwood Points and saw the Book Of Mormon featuring our old neighbor, Colin Anderson.

We rented a car at the small airport in South Saint Paul and they drove it right up to the plane!
W view
Our view from our room at the W. Notice the half-staff flag. It was Sept. 11, 2014

What a TREAT it was to watch a touring Broadway Play with a cast member that we actually knew! It was Colin’s 30th show….but some cast members had been performing for 700 shows! The play was in Minneapolis at the Orpheum Theater for a few weeks. The actors perform 8 shows a week and have Monday off…..just like Broadway.

Minneapolis Orpheum
The Minneapolis Orpheum Theater was about 3 blocks from our hotel.

He actually came out before the show to get the cookies I baked for him!

We took Colin some Break-A-Leg Chocolate Chip Cookies and he met us out front before the show started.

The Pritzker Interior

I must admit, after standing IN the Pritzker Military Museum and Library, I was starting to feel my blood pressure rise because I LOVED HOW IT LOOKED!!! Follow this link to see a few pro-photos of the place.  One Librarian there told me that Frank Lloyd Wright once lived in and worked at that building. You can take a virtual tour of the Monroe Building!
