Family Trip in Pictures

This past weekend was wonderful. We have been to Lake Itasca State Park before, but it had to have been at least 15 years since! The weekend consisted of a lot of relaxing, a bit of walking and hiking, grilling, games, cards, ladder golf, rest, and a lot of laughs! Here's a handful of pics from my camera.


Mississippi Headwaters....
My family... minus me. hehehe.

The beginning of a 2 mile hiking trail... that was beautiful, but full of bugs!
Steph and I kayaking on Lake Itasca. It was a gorgeous evening!

Crossing the Mississippi on the slippery rocks means taking your life in your hands! But, it's so pretty there -- I love Itasca.

Can't believe you're all in sweatshirts though.

Lisa said...

I'm envious - you had great family time in a beautiful place. :)

Marcy said...

Gorgeous chica!! And wait . . .that's your Mom in the one pic(far left)?!?!? She looks like she could be your sister!

We were wearing sweatshirts in those pics becuase it was cool that evening, and we were walking through trees that were full of skeeters and horse flies.

And Marcy, yes, that is my mom in the far left.

Anne said...

I agree with Marcy -- your Mom looks just like one of you! And who knew the head of the Mississippi was so lush and blue -- so not like farther down the "stream" at the other end of the country.

Nice.. its a gorgeous park. The sign actually reminds me of one I saw here - It said "Keep your eyes and ears open and your mouth shut" :)
