It seems that summer in Minnesota is always too short. We have 10,000 lakes here, and we Minnesotans try to enjoy them as much as we can, but at the end of the day, when Labor Day rolls around, it's always with a longing glance backward and we wonder where the last three months have gone.
We try to remedy that in the Hilden family, despite the fact that summer is my busy season at work, and just overall we always seem to have a million things going on.
Last weekend we enjoyed the company of some fabulous friends who are blessed to live on one of the 10,000 local bodies of water, and they treated us to pizza and lake-time fun.
I remained dry and had a blast.
Park was a little nervous, but I am so proud of him as he's learning to conquer his fears and as he does, he has an absolute awesome time trying new things.
He did not want to come in.
A bucket list day, for sure.
Enjoy your last official weekend of summer 2014, my friends!
