School got out June 9 and we hit the ground running with summer activities! We've got a little 2 week break so I'm hoping to get caught up on entering our activities before the next wave! To start the summer we picked Makenna up from school and left for Minnesota for Steve's family reunion. It was a 15+ hour drive and the kids did really well (for the most part). Our most exciting part of the drive was about 4 hours after we left we stopped at a rest stop for a break. When we got out we noticed all of these bees but I just told the kids if we didn't bother them then they wouldn't bother us. So we walked around and did our thing and as we were getting back in the bees were all of a sudden so mad. We hurried and got in the car and as I was getting Caleb in a bee got in my hair! Steve shuts the doors and I'm screaming in the parking lot trying to get this bee out of my hair (I'm sure I looked like a crazy lady!) The bee finally got out but in the process had stung me on my cheek. I got back in the car and was able to pull the stinger out. But the next few days my cheek was swollen, it looked like I had just gotten my wisdom teeth out!

This was out to the lighthouse to the Duluth bridge- Lake Superior is in the background.
On our drive home we saw this huge Paul Bunyan and had to stop and take a picture.
