June 4th, 2016 – My girlfriend and I were going to the Como Park to watch the Cherry Blossom festival. The event started out early in the morning so we set an alarm to get up, make lunch, then head off.. We took a 10-mile bike ride to Como Park and were just late enough to miss the festival. While it was a bummer that we missed the festival, we made use of the trip to visit the Como Japanese garden and the zoo. For the first time we were able to check out the Japanese tea house, which is usually closed each time we visit the garden.
Later in the day we met up with some friends at the park to play frisbee, board games, and watch a movie.
