Days of summer...

Our week "up north" was unseasonably cool, but we still fully enjoyed the time away, soaking up family time and lots of new experiences.The first few days were sunny and clear. There were campfires, and s'mores...of course.Some of the marshmallows were as big as baby Hans' head!It was such a delight to meet my new nephew. He is cute as can be!My sister and I loved hanging out with our girls together.
There were some cool, cloudy days when we did lots of crafts.
We tromped through the woods looking for inspiration and supplies for our projects.
Took a trip into town for turtle races and ice cream.
Saw a family of loons from the cabin window.
The kids went fishing for the first time.


What a wonderful family vacation!

You and your sister both have daughters that look like THEY could be sisters!! Looks like it was a lovely time. I haven't been in Minnesota for an extended period of time since I moved down to Iowa. Hoping to make it back up before Christmas strikes, which seems to be the only time I can make it up there! You are very fortunate to be "up north" as we say... :-)
