Road Trip!

For the past few days we've been on an adventure-our first family road trip! We drove up the north shore and stayed on the beach of Lake Superior in a small town just south of the Canadian border. It was a wonderful few days for our little family-we threw lots of rocks, ate way too many treats, threw more rocks, did some hiking, threw more rocks, played a round of mini-golf, and just enjoyed spending time together!

Just hanging out...

We stopped in Duluth to enjoy lunch on the boardwalk. On a whim, we rented "silly bikes" as Graham calls them, and rode along the beach to get an ice cream treat.

This beach was steps from our hotel room. The thick fog you can see rolling in was very eerie...

Graham was in HEAVEN! Being allowed to throw rocks as hard and as far as he could do it. Does it get any better? Amelia only wanted to touch the "clean" rocks....not surprising I suppose.

This pouty lip is too cute not to share! Amelia's sad face came at the result of Daddy repeatedly telling Amelia not to put rocks in her mouth.

They made up!

Having fun at the "Worlds Best Donut" shop. Yep, they really were that good!

Graham loved his sky tram ride!

These two just couldn't throw enough rocks!

Our first family mini-golf experience. Let's just say that with toddlers along, the rules go straight out the window!

Sounds like you had a "rocking" good time. Glad all went well - a little warm but fun and safe.
