…especially when they got to take turns “driving” the boat! Cap’n Sav, at your service…

I love Loons! My inlaws live in Maine 6 months out of the year and the Loons are always on the lake. And added touch, every time the phone rings in Maine it's the Loon calling sound, ha.

Wow, looks like such a fun time!!

Kelsey said...

Every time you mention Joe's Minnesota roots, I get so giddy! I know it's super silly, but I keep thinking, "Suz is a famous blogger, and her kids are racing turtles where *I* raced turtles as a kid!!!!" Glad you all had a great time on our beautiful lakes. :)

Looks like a great time....we have a cabin in Cross Lake so were up for the 4th....missed the turtle races though, I had to work!

Andrea said...

So glad it looks like you had a WONDERFUL time in our beautiful MN. Looks like you are doing all those things we really do here!

I have been following you since you were halfway through pregnancy (I was halfway through pregnancy myself) and I kept following b/c I was in love with your family and b/c you had MN folks lived just off of Gull Lake and I live in MN still...We are down south nearer to Rochester in the little city of Austin (yes, MN has an Austin too!) And if you had extra time, you should really come check out our claim to fame, the SPAM museum!!! It's free and a great experience. Enjoy the great north :)
