It's Monday and I'm grateful I didnt have to go right back to work.
Today I've had some time to relax, put some things in order around the house and
run some errands after being gone a week on vacation.
This was our 1st attempt to rent a place up north for us and all our kids.
We have actually been spending time on the same lake (Long lake) for over 22 years and have so many fond memories, but our arrangements fell through 2 years ago and now we needed to start over.....
New Place....same Lake
New Frontier Resort, Park Rapids MN
We love Long lake , it's rated as one of the top cleanest lakes in MN
The beach was amazing, especially good for the little ones
The living area, plenty of room for all of us...
Or not! (pig-pile on Gavin, on the bottom)
The upstairs was occupied by my daughter and family.
I loved the kitchen, very spacious and updated.
My one yr. old grandson loved the deer head on the wall (upper right)
Doors out to a large deck with a gas grill.
This cabin was a perfect fit for our family.
Four bedrooms, two baths and plenty of space :)

On Saturday we arrived a little early and decided to head on up to the
headwaters of the Mississippi in Itasca, only about 30 minutes from our place.
Our daughter-in-love had never been there,
so now she has

Thought I would leave you with a few fun shots of the giant trampoline in the water
that our kids enjoyed back at the resort....

They never stop pestering each other, no matter their age.... it's all in fun
Stay tuned for more posts on our vacation....
