Full Weekend

DSC_2217Linzy and I made it back from our weekend up north in Nevis, MN. We had a terrific time, and managed to pack a ridiculous amount of activities into the day-and-a-half we were up north. We caravaned up on Friday after work with Dan, through incredibly annoying traffic from downtown to St. Michael, and then spent the evening catching up with everyone.

Saturday was our one full day up North, and so we took advantage of every second:

We started the day out with a pontoon ride around the lake, then while the Phillips' all went to a family reunion picnic, Linzy and I went into Park Rapids for lunch. Then we did a little shopping and went to a local park, and afterwards drove up to Itasca state park to see the Mississippi Headwaters (which are shockingly small, even if you are prepared). After that we drove back over to Dorset and met up with Dan and Nikki for a Dorset House (established 1894!) ice cream cone.

Then it was back to the family reunion picnic to watch some Phillips-versus-Reynolds tug-of-war. After that, it was back to the house to do some swimming, kayaking, tubing and water skiing. If that wasn't enough, I also played some games of Touring with Phillipa, we had some smores around a campfire, and initiated Phillipa and one of Dan's nephews in snipe hunting.

It was a full day, but a lot of fun.
