Long Minnesota Goodbye

With less than three weeks remaining before we get on the plane and head for Kuwait we are officially in the midst of the Long Minnesota Goodbye.  We want to see as many of our friends and family as possible in the next few weeks and we are starting that off by spending a week up in Northern Minnesota with Mitch’s family.

We spent as much time as possible on the lake….

Doing a whole lot of nothing.

Naps were non-negotiable, everyone was required to take a daily snooze.

The person who remembered to bring the frisbee was a genius, it provided hours of entertainment including a game of fire frisbee.

This little munchkin is my Sister-in-Law’s pooch, he was exhausted by the end of the week.

Seriously, how cute is that cabin? VRBO you rock!

This was our first time using VRBO and will definitely be using it again. It was such an awesome way to have all of our family under one roof.

We had a beautiful cabin, and a wonderful time

Cooley’s first time at the lake.

He loved (wait never mind) he was actually quite scared of the water, but thought the ducks wanted to play!

The frisbee is the key to any good vacation

We had a perfect sunset every night,

…which made the thought of leaving this amazing state even more bitter sweet.

All in all a great way to spend time with your family, at the lake with no agenda.
