We were lucky enough to take a drive two hours north to the lovely land of Duluth, which, I am ashamed to say, we had never visited in our six years of living in Minnesota.
The kids are the perfect age to enjoy it. A lift bridge, constant boats, Lake Superior, and more rocks than they throw back into that big body of water. But they tried.
What is my daughter doing? Oh, just trying to stuff as many smooth Lake Superior rocks into her dress as will fit!
Yes the hotel had s'mores and after the kiddos stuffed their faces, they climbed all over the giant rocks along the shore.
We climbed the next morning around Enger Park, and were rewarded with this view of Duluth. There's our hotel down there! And the lift bridge!
We had a lovely mini-vacation and can't wait to go back next year. It's amazing to be able to do all this with our kids and to feel how they experience it. We heart Duluth!
