Collecting Travel "Stuff"

When I was a kid my dad traveled a lot for work. I don’t think they were very exotic places, but he always managed to come home with a big hug, a story and a little trinket to remind us of his trip. Souvenirs are a great way to remember a vacation... Read More

Critters, Crud and Mud

Living in West Central Minnesota means we have access to all sorts of nature’s gifts. Thanks to Mother Nature and plenty of rain, the golf course is gorgeous and the corn is on track to be amazing. The race track will hold its King of the Dirt Races this month – and hopefully it will NOT be muddy (although mud is exactly what we want for the Viking Challenge and Mud Run on September 19th). If you are a rodeo fan you know that mud makes for a super-fun event – horses and bulls kicking up dirt and cowboys slip-sliding all over the place. Read More

Family, Fun and Fireworks

Summertime, and the livin’ is easy. This is the best time of year to be in Minnesota. The kids are out of school, the days are longer – and of course, warmer – and there are so many options for things to do. That first week of vacation I heard a few “there’s nothing to do” from kids. But I quickly pulled out the summer events calendar – designed for visitors – and posted it on the refrigerator. Read More
