Up North living!!   

I have lived in Minnesota for 8 years and have never done a cabin up north. Can you believe it?  I have been to Lutsen, Grand Marais and Duluth.  That is the extent of my Northern Minnesota experiences.   That all changes right now. We had such an amazing experience at Crow Wing that my daughter made me promise her we would do it EVERY summer.  Since she is the boss, naturally I said yes. 

When my friend told me there were no TV's in the cabin and we had to bring our own towels, pots and pans, etc I ALMOST bailed.  I thought I was going to a resort.  Silly me. So I loaded up the car with pretty much everything we own and headed to a week of "roughing it". 

Roughing it= not so much. It was AMAZING!!!  They had kayaks, paddle boards, paddle boats and everything else you can imagine right there on the beach. The kids had a blast!!!  Every day they had activities for the children. At night they were family activities.  The week went by quite quickly.  

My son went fishing for the first time in his life. It is so fun to watch him learning new things. He would jump up and down and scream every time he saw a fish. Now that I think about it, maybe the other fisherman weren't so happy about that. HA

My daughter had fun taking out the kayaks and took the younger kids for rides. She would paddle out to the floating dock and jump off (over & over again). 

The adults....well we packed wine, lots of wine!!!
