We had the most wonderful field trip the other day, visiting one of the hottest pizza places in Minneapolis - and after one bite, I understood why - Punch makes the best pizza I've ever had. Their wood-fired pizza oven maintains a temperature of 800 degrees , so your order is done in minutes. Unlike my homemade pizza, their pies are very light and thin, with a few delicious charred bubbles of cheese and dough.
After lunch, we meandered to Nicollet Island - a tiny island in the middle of the Mississippi river, with a charming Inn and lots of parkland to wander through . We met up with a family friend, who was fishing there (below) - he didn't catch anything, but the fish were leaping and splashing just a few feet away from us. What an amazing place!

Have a great weekend!
