It's so great to have The King & Queen here in America. I wish they would make a State Visit here and be welcomed by President Obama & The First Lady.

I've visited the state of Minnesota several times and if I didn't live in Florida, this is one state I would love to reside in (only if it wasn't so cold). I've been to the American Swedish Institute several years ago.
