On our trip to Minnesota, we had some fun playing soccer at Granny and Grandpa's house. By sheer coincidence, my boys were wearing the same color shirt, as if they had matching jerseys on!
|A hard goal to score on|
|"Wait, are we on the same team?"|
We went to one of the many awesome outdoor playgrounds and the only picture I took was the three of them on a tire swing. In my defense, we were hanging out with an adult friend while the kids played.
|Smile, er, turn for the camera!|
|Looks like the same day as soccer, huh?|
At Baker Park Reserve, we celebrated a family reunion and Granny and Grandpa's 50th anniversary, though I was too busy having fun to take many pictures. My youngest worked on his bicycling skills.
Adults and kids played an impromptu football game. There seemed to be no sidelines--if someone ran toward the edge they might outrun their opponent and score as long as they reached the dirt road.
The ladder bolo game was fun but difficult.
|What's the right throwing technique?|
Independence Lake (inside the park) had swimming and other water sports available. My oldest children tried out paddleboarding.
|Second achievement: rowing|
|Third achievement: outrunning a power boat|
|Ready to stand|
|Another achievement: standing and rowing|
|Going to the edge|
The party on Saturday was fun, with singing and dancing and other activities.
|Grandpa and most of the grandkids|
|Dancing or fighting?|
We had a great time.
