Exploring Minnesota

This past weekend we took my mom up north to “Fifty Lakes” to spend the weekend at my sister’s in-law’s cabin. Thank you Randy and Louann for having us!  We were able to rent her a hospital bed & hoyer lift, so she was really comfortable.  This was her first trip in 5 years, and it meant so much to us!  Our car was packed to the rim with medical supplies and back-ups, but we managed not to forget anything.  This post is mostly going to be pictures from our weekend.  A picture is worth a thousand words, right?  Enjoy!

Quick picture before our trip home! I think I caught everybody mid-movement

As you can see, we had a great time!  Now we are relaxing & trying to get everything put back away.  It was a very special weekend, and I am so happy we were able to get my mom out to do something different.  She had a wonderful time!

    Do you know how close you were to our place….about 8 miles. What lake Kego or East Fox? Renee, Nolan, Rick, Laura and Gavin were up at our place this past weekend. It really is a SMALL world.

    • We were on Fox Lake. I wish we would have known! It would have been fun to take a little drive over to see you! We had such a wonderful time :). Hopefully we will do it again some time!
