While the 4th of July typically means a simple day of hot dogs and fireworks, for Kim Kardashian, this year's Independence Day meant dropping her glamorous L.A. lifestyle for a weekend in good ol' Minnesota.
The newly engaged starlet – who's accustomed to red carpet entrances and gaggles of paparazzi – spent a down-to-Earth weekend in fiance Kris Humphries' hometown of Minneapolis, Minnesota. The duo spent lots of time in Tonka Bay, a quaint little lakeside community west of his home digs.
Future Mrs. Humphries tweeted on July 4th: "Kind of obsessed with Lake Minnetonka! Boats & O's! It's like Vegas on the lake over here!" In that case, she must have not felt too isolated from her normal lifestyle.
Earlier in the weekend Kim and her man took in a Minnesota Twins baseball game where Kris threw the first pitch and a flock of Twins fans asked Kim to sign their baseballs. The brunette also jet-skied on the 4th, while Kris tweeted photos of his future wifey "tearing up the lake." They finished off their Midwestern weekend with lunch at Hazellewood Grill and Kris summed up the trip on Twitter: "Had a great weekend."
He also showed us all that even a Kardashian can hang in Middle America. Score.
