Family Vacation

The last two weeks were family vacation time.  My sister and her family came from Ohio to visit, along with my parents.  We had a great week visiting local attractions like Teddy Bear Park in Stillwater, University of Minnesota, Interstate State Park, and Como Zoo.  When she left my parents stayed and we hit the road to Pete's Retreat on Mille Lacs Lake.  Great place for camping, and the kids loved the pools.  Afterwards we headed further north to the Iron Range for a few nights at a very cool cabin.  We stayed near the city of Virginia, and visited Mineview in the Sky and the Hull Rust Mahoning Mine View.  Both were very informative since I didn't know anything about the mining history of northern Minnesota (and the kids loved the big trucks). 

I still managed to run, but mostly on time and not a know distance.  It was nice to have a change of scenery.
