The whole crew.

Minnesota Summer

Just got back from another great trip to Minnesota and lake country. We had decent weather and tons of fun fishing, swimming and going out for dinner. I hope we can make the trip up north work next year. The boys sports schedules are getting complicated.

Tree Monkies

I played golf with Marsh and Finn while the rest of the clan went zip lining. They had fun, as did we.

Man Catch Fish

The boys caught some fish. Small fish and Dylan's could have been bait for a bigger fish but they had a good time. Karen caught a big northern and Finn caught a really big bass. Good day on the lake.


The last snow up north was eight weeks ago.

Gull Lake Selfie

Very good dinner last night at Maddens Lodge. Perfect first night up north.

First Night Dinner

We tried a new restaurant at Maddens. Very good with great views of Gull lake.

Healing Waters

I think it's important to swim in natural bodies of water every so often. Lake Sylvan was cold today but refreshing and recharged my Minnesota mojo.

Dylan is working out with the Fort Hunt Warriors Rugby Club tonight and appears to be loving it. One could argue it's a more civilized game than American football.

The boys start finals next week and then freshman year will be over. They both had a good first year as Eagles.

Search for he Source

Woke up to water coming down from the ceiling, on to the kitchen floor and onto the basement. We have not found the source yet but Servpro has been here to deliver fans and dehumidifiers and contractors are coming on Tuesday.
