We flew back to Minnesota for Tracy and Matt’s wedding celebration. They got married last year during the height of the pandemic, and decided to delay the schindig until this summer. We spent the evening on a river boat on the Mississippi. Fun evening seeing family and floating along. The highlight was getting to see […]
Last winter, Kari and I partnered with Mel and Jarrett to purchased a lot near Eagle Point ski resort. It’s a bare half acre in the Tusher mountains covered in trees and accessed by a dirt road. The plan is to eventually build a cabin and have a place to ski and snowmobile away from […]
Second half of our Minnesota trip at my folks place in Battle Lake. Sarah and Freddie were there for most of the time, and Jeff showed up later in the week. The weather was meh, but we still got out to fish, hit Granny’s in BL, and have a fish fry. Here’s the pics:
Grandpa Gary and Grandma Pat both turned 70 this year and that means it was time to party! Tracy, Kari, and Jarrett arranged a weekend at Barn Again in Mondovi – we stayed in the Barn and partied on the patio and in the bar. It was a very fun weekend of too much eating […]
Tory’s good friend Jeremiah’s family has spent most of the winter in the Florida Keys. They us all down for spring break – but it was simply too cost prohibitive for all of us to go. So Tory flew down by himself. I’ll say this – the first time you put a child on a […]
UEA Break is two days off of school for the kids while the teachers attend a convention put on by their union. I think anyway. For us it’s two days off that we’ve traditionally spent in southern Utah canyoneering. This year we got a call from aunt Jenny that she could use some help moving […]
We try to visit family in Minnesota at least once a year, and July is usually the best time. Good weather, the 4th of July holiday, and of course the kids are out of school.
We took a quick trip to Minnesota in June to see Marcus and Lindsey get married, and celebrate Jacob’s high school graduation. The 4th of July is definitely a better time to visit Minnesota in the summer, but it was nice to see everyone. I made the mistake of leaving after visiting the Moe’s while […]
If you’re going to visit Minnesota, do it in the summer. The 4th of July is always the best time of year there, and this year was no exception. Beautiful, hot weather, swimming, boating, ice cream, bowling, and parades. Kari even snuck in her 20th high school class reunion.
Kari and the kids few home to Minnesota for a weeklong trip to see Marcus graduate and leave for the Air Force. The kids were excited to spend time with family and loved flying. Kari, you should add a few notes here since I wasn’t along on this one…
