Much needed family vacation

After a very busy summer, we finally had time to get away as a family for a week. We moved around from place to place but just took our time and had a great time. It was a much needed break for Todd. We came home a half a day earlier than we had thought we would and it has been so nice to just kick around home for a day without doing any work. Tomorrow we jump back into reality! The reason for the trip was Our friends Mike and Maija's wedding. Their wedding was a wonderful time and we are so excited to see "Uncle" Mike married to such a great woman! Here are some pictures of where we went .

We stopped at a rest area overlooking Duluth on the way to the wedding.The wedding was at Camp Forest Springs. We had a blast there!

There was a little mini farm where we could pet lots of different animals


The boys got very into the tennis courts there

The wedding was in a beautiful spot on a hill overlooking the lake

The happy couple all married!



Good Friends

We took a day after the wedding and climbed around on the rocks at Interstate State Park in Taylors Falls, MN

The boys could've climbed all week.

Potholes in the park

We climbed down to the river


From there we went to a hotel with a waterpark in Elk River, MN



Then we met up with my parents and my sister's family at the MN State Fair
