Momma and her two cubs.


Our first official campus tour at Northwestern University today. Nice place with a sweet beach. Tough school to get into but it definitely left an impression.

Our 10th trip to Kavanaughs Resort in northern Minnesota and a great time with all these people. Karen joined us about 5 years ago and this was a Rachel's friend David's first trip. Let's hope we can get everyone back next July.

One of the many smaller fish of the day.


We haven't done the duck race in a few years but man, was it competitive.


We had a similar post 6 or 7 years ago at this restaurant. My, have they grown.

Big Fish

Looks like Karen got the biggest fish this week. The whole crew got lots of smaller ones on a cloudy day on the lake.

He baited the hooks and got the hooks out of the tiny fish mouths. The boys just casted. He's a fish slayer.


The boys fished a little and caught a few little fishes but I caught them together with grandma in this photo.


The annual trip to lake sylvan and some mid-lake diving off the pontoon. We caught a few fish as well on a warm, slightly windy day.

Big Chair

Sam wasn't a big fan of the big chair picture.
