Land of 10,000 Lakes

Chillaxing at Grandma's.

Kyle says that Minnesota really has about 15,000 lakes. It is amazing to see them around every bend in the area that Kyle's parents are in. We might go out on a pontoon boat tomorrow. The wedding rehearsal is tomorrow night and the wedding on Saturday. The last of Robin and Toby's eight kids will be hitched. It has been pretty busy up here getting the house ready and grounds. I'll have to take pictures of the gardens and general store to post later. It has been very relaxing for us. What a memorable vacation!

They got to play with cousins Autumn, Talon, and Ashley
Kayla is an expert frog gigger. She catches and releases for hours every day.
We spent Wednesday at Whipholt along Leech Lake.

Still reading at the beach, on to a new book though....ahh!

Weightlifting nordic style!
We found alot of snail shells along the beach.

Jumping the waves.

Kyle says there is only a few days a year that the waves come in like this. We got to be there on a fun day.

Kyle with his tent obsession found this new one up here. (Okay, so I showed him.) But I think this will be the next years Scout Master cabin at camp. It doesn't even look like a tent!
We are really being tourist here. We stopped on the side of the road to take a picture of what we thought was an eagles nest. But really it is an osprey's nest.
Kasey and Presley
Kota with his Uncles (Kaleb, Kolyn and Klayton)
Karson has it figured out after Kyle showed him how.
Kyle playing with Karson's new toys.
Karson's birthday party. He just turned two. We don't get to attend many birthday parties in MN.
Karson, Kody and Presley (nieces and nephews)
Robin holding Ellie, Kaleb and Nicole's baby.
Kayla holding one of many family pets at Kaleb and Nicoles house. She wants to be a vet tech one day. I think she will be good at that. She sure loves animals.
The drive to Robin and Toby's house.
The road Kyle grew up on. Oxyoke it is called now, when he grew up it was called HCR (Highway Contract Route).
