Connelly family takes over Lake Miltona

The kids and I got home from Okoboji on Thursday and hit the road on Saturday for a week long vacation in Minnesota with the Connelly family. Jeff stayed home to work for a couple of days so on the road there it was Suzie, Dave, Sullivan, Isaac, Anna and myself. It was one packed minivan but we made it with no problems. 

We rented a cabin on Lake Miltona, just north of Alexandria. It was beautiful and so peaceful. We had a great time fishing, swimming, having bon fires, feeding cows across the street, painting, going to baseball games, chasing rainbows, sleeping in bunk beds built into the cabin, baking, mock up golf challenges, playing on the swing set and so much more. We celebrated Shelley's 40th Birthday and My dad's 73rd Birthday. Sullivan took his first steps, too!

There was a little excitement with a boat starting on fire and the same boat almost sinking! Good thing it was my dad's fishing boat and not the one we rented. Whoa- something none of us will ever forget!
