Our annual family vacation to Minnesota has come and gone. We went to a new-to-us resort this year near Alexandria, MN. It was awesome to be back in the area again after an absence of many years. We first came to the area in 1981 to go to Ironwood Resort, which friends of my parents owned. We went there for 20 some years until it closed. We have been search for a new home away from home since then...we think we found it this time. Our cabin was literally feet from the water. There was no traffic and good neighbors, so the kids could run wild. Most important - we were all together. I am 35 and go on vacation with my parents. I can only dream that Lauren will go on vacation with me when she is 35.
Lauren and Cody share a moment during our packing.
Taking a potty training toddler on vacation was an experience,
but she was wonderful.
