Spring is around the corner and only now, we finally went up north to Mille Lacs. Teddy, Susana, Steffen, Matthew and I are officially saying our farewells to this incredible season called Winter.
We stayed at the cabins in the camp that our Shakopee Church owns. Well actually, Teddy was going because he devoted his time and energy to adjust the elders of our church that were at the meeting, and the rest of us just tagged along.
By the way, my husband is a chiropractor whose patients get positive results in the least amount of time. If you need a great doc, I have one here for you. Come see him work his magic on you.
If I could describe this weekend in one word, it’d be beingadventurouswhilefacingourfears. We were adventurous by spending the night in the woods away from home. Doing exciting and dangerous things always gives us an adrenaline rush. We were facing our fears by petting the two huge German Shepherds. Just for the record, I personally wasn’t THAT scared. I was more afraid of the outcome after Susana screams as she sees the dogs running her way. They did chase us back to our rooms though..
We also faced our fears by driving on the frozen lake. I probably shouldn’t be saying “we” here because it was mostly Susana and I who were afraid! Haha. And the guys were brave! Brave enough to Tokyo Drift on the frozen lake.
Waking up to the smell of waffles and burning wood was definitely lovely. And ending the day having a room party with the siblings was definitely splendid. In fact, we partied so hard with bunk beds, popcorn, and coconut water that we all needed adjustments after that weekend.
It was time to go home. Finally, a warm shower washed away the smoke off of our skins. Spending the night in the cabins with sleeping bags and twin mattresses loosely attached, only made us appreciate our king size bed. Going over our weekend pictures while being treated to a bowl of Chipotle was a perfect end to this last Winter getaway.
I know that it’s only February, but I’m already excited for the Spring transition. It’ll be Teddy’s and my first Spring together.
