Our long Minnesota goodbye continued the other night with an awesome evening of boating with my work friends and their hubbies. It was the kind of night Minnesotans dream about during the winter months when the temperatures can reach 40 degrees below zero. The lake was calm, the water was warm, and the sunset was amazeballs.
Apparently tubing is one of those things in life that continues to get better with age.
This picture continues to get funnier the longer I look at my own face.
However, flipping the tube back over does not continue to get better with age.
Heidi & Katie
Whoooo hoooo, she’s got it
Love that expression
Sarah won the award for most persistence
I also really enjoy this series of pictures
I love that she is smiling on her way down
I also love that all you can see in this picture are her feet
Brannon got to surf on gold that night…the light was amazing!
This picture won the award of favorite shot of the night, Minnesota sunsets never get old.
Thank you Heidi and Brannon for a great night! Thank you Steve, Katie, Josh, & Sarah for coming out, I will miss you ladies more than words can express. Your friendship has brought so much fun and laughter to my life.
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.
