It's been a rather stressful, busy year for this family. We've not really had a lot of time to spend together without any obligations, responsibilities and work pressing in. So, it was with much joy that we realized Adam had a lot of vacation time saved up and our brains really need the break.
So, we loaded down the car.
To kick things off, we headed north. I was exited to show the family where my great-grandma homesteaded for many years, all by herself, in the great north woods, Superior National Forest.
We ended up at Bear Head Lake State Park, an amazing place!
It was 90 some degrees and super humid when we pulled in to set up camp. Notice the bright pink cheeks and wet hair, that's how hot it was.
The best part of the storm meant that the heat broke. When we woke up in the morning it was cool and much drier. We got in some kayaking, fishing and wading, as well as good naps and reading.
All in all, it was a fantastic way to kick off some well-earned vacation time. We are plotting our next adventure.
