I took my 3y.i. daughter last year. Her favorite thing was playing in the setup shacks and eating popcorn (and dropping it all over.) I didn't get to do as much shopping as I would have liked, but we had a good time together.

It's a hard place to have a little kid by yourself (as was my case.) Lots of stuff at ground level for little paws to get into and it was packed. You need to keep a pretty close eye on the little ones for their safety and the vendors sake.

Yah, I know she will be OOOOHHH daddy or Dabie(Davie) Look at that, can i have this, can i have that. Or I will "loose" her in the portable, it will all be good, unless she somehow finds a way to fall down the hole.....

Luckly I will have two other guys there and shes a pretty good kid and will hopefully listen, and as far as not being able to shop, eh thats ok, that just means its will be harder to spend money =-)

Shawny B- I was 3 weeks old when I went to my first MPLS sport show.. I'm 37 now and have only missed one while in college and had to work. When I was in my younger years, my parents put me on a leash, yes a leash!!! I was running all over the place, it was the only way to keep track of me.

It kills me that I will miss the ice show this year. Love to be there! But I got to pay the bills too.. I will be at the Cabelas event the same weekend.

Yeah, we ran into you last year/this spring at Rogers. She loves the tank over there, so im thinking she will love the "tank" there.

Ive debated on the "Leash" but just cant bring myself to it.

Shawnny, the kids get together is on again this year. Same place, close to the same time. Here is the info.

For what it is worth, I brought my little boy last year, at 1 1/2 and it was tough. Deitz could probably attest to that as we stopped and chatted with him there. If he comes with me this year, he is going on a leash, for sure!

    •   Exactly! As long as politics ( And trump) stick around old silly town will still be around. 
    •   I did consider texture changes as well and all I can tell so far is that folks sharing online recipes and photo's didn't have serious issues with that.  They did mention having to cook out absorbed liquid when they heated up the canned slices.  When I get around to my experiment I believe I'll do some jars with fatty slices and some with cased sausage.
    •     If it gets here anytime in the near future, del is either going to have to start making trips to Mexico or go visit Dr Juice..      

    • I'm thinking the same thing, it's coming.
    •     As of 2013, (four years ago) 58 percent were in favor of legalizing marijuana too, and the FDA and DEA haven't even budged...   http://www.gallup.com/poll/165539/first-time-americans-favor-legalizing-marijuana.aspx
    •   1.  You don't have to be Michelangelo to know that Jackson Pollock was a terrible painter. 2.  Yes, that's 100% true. 
    •   Actually he is a hypocrite in 2 different ways.   1. He called out someone else's skill but was unwilling to show us how it is done. 2. He likely only called you out because you are a liberal picking on his republican buddy. If someone like Uncle Bill had made that picture he would have probably just "liked" it and moved on.
    • Don't forget, single payer is what Trump was backing many years ago. He may be angling to get it now.   Think about it. As far a partisan politics go, this would be a genius move for the republicans if the think tanks could come up with a way to spin it to the base.    Whatever party passes single payer will solidify at least a couple of consecutive presidential terms like the Democrats did.
    • I don't think he's a hypocrite, even though I question his skills as he failed to even identify the tool I poorly used.  He's just capable of identifying objectively poor photoshopping and a tool for pointing it out.  There isn't much that can change that.
    •   http://www.gallup.com/poll/191504/majority-support-idea-fed-funded-healthcare-system.aspx   58% are already in favor of single payer. I bet after last week's fiasco, those numbers go up even higher.
