White Bear Lake Outing
I took the girls to the quaint downtown area of White Bear Lake today. "What's a downtown?", they asked. We walked along the wide smooth path along the lake and noticed a lot of evidence of receeding water. The walk is lined with beautiful flowers, lake side homes and a canopy of twisty oak trees. We spent some time up in the gazebo at a public park and ate our picnic lunch. Then we fed the ducks, visited a few little shops, downed some cool lemonade and finished it off with a trip to "Cup and Cone." Here we got soft serve ice cream...they sell small cones for 94 cents! Got me to thinking about keeping track of outings around town that fall under the category "Under $5". Thought I could also start a list of good date night ideas for under $10.
