Have you ever just wanted to go to a state that has over 10,000 lakes? If so, then Minnesota is the place for you. I have been coming here ever since I was just a little guy. Here is a little story of my Minnesota visits. First of all, the main reason I like Minnesota is because of my grandparents. My grandma makes the best food I have ever had. She makes this strawberry stuff that has crushed up pretzels on the bottom with Cool Whip in the middle. It also has a Jello strawberry substance on top; my brother and I always devour it. She also makes good ham; she puts some pineapple on her ham and leaves it in the crock pot for a while. My grandpa is the hardest working man I know.

I have been here quite a few times, and it is still always fun to go. My cousins have taken me here before and they took us to the Mall of America.
