North Shore Family Vacation

Last weekend we took our first annual camping trip to Temperance River State Park up Minnesota’s BEAUTIFUL North Shore.  We reserved 5 campsites and filled them with family and friends for a weekend of fun and adventure.  It was Tanner and Emmy Lu’s first camping experience and I have to say they did AWESOME!!  Tanner slept thru the night (with the help of my battery operated I pod radio and some Rock-a-bye Lullabies)  and Emmy Lu woke up only a couple times a night to eat then went right back to bed.  It was definitely LOTS of work keeping up with the kids and chasing Tanner around all weekend while also taking care of Emmy.  However, I think the experiences are so great and worth the work for the benefits their little brains got.  There were tons of new sights, sounds, faces, experiences that they unfortunately won’t remember but will help shape them into little outdoor, adventure loving people.  The MN State Park system lets you book campsites 1 year out so this morning we already booked our campsites for next year Aug 9-12, 2012.  We also had so much fun that we reserved 2 more sites.  Here are some pictures of our adventures.
