Family Fun....

was what we had last weekend in northern MN! Life has been kinda hectic in our fever had hit! One got home at 6 from football, and the other started at 6! So, our family time was pretty rare! Thank goodness that they both turned in their football gear this week! Tonight we actually ALL get to sit down to the dinner table together at the same time! I can't even begin to tell you how wonderful it will be!

Dennis and I decided to take advantage of the MEA weekend , and the kids not having, we took them on a little get away! Of course at 12 and almost 15 it is NOT cool to stop and pose for the camera! So, the boys had to take goofy shots! We missed out on fall colors by about a week, but the park was still beautiful! It felt very cold (about 50)...but the boys insisted on walking across the headwaters of the Mississippi!

One hi-light was that we stopped in our favorite little town.......Nisswa! They have the BEST little candy store around(The Chocolate Ox)!~ Hubby gets sour balls by the pound and the kids get whatever tickles there fancy on that day! I got to *taste* everyone's pick to make sure they made good desicions! lol

Make sure to take time once in while with your family.......make memories and HAVE FUN!
