Lake Elmo Beach

Today I took Ethan, Kayla, and Wyatt to Lake Elmo Park Reserve where they have a man-made beach and swimming area. It was warm, about 85 and we all got a little pink despite putting on sunscreen multiple times!

Dad and Wyatt on the boat!

We joined a boat club this year, they have about 7 boats for us to choose from, everything from 26' speed boats to pontoons, cabin cruisers, and everything in between. Last Saturday we took Ellen and Wyatt out and he had a ball!


We went camping up north to Split Rock Lighthouse again. We left on Father's day and stayed for 3 nights. The weather was beautiful. We really got lucky, last year it rained almost the whole time and was damp. Average temps during the day were 65 to 70 or more and at night it was in the 50s I think all but one night when the wind kicked up and it felt more like 45. That same night we were all woken up at about 4 or 5am to a cawing crow. He went on for quite a while, the only downfall to camping is the wildlife sometimes. We saw a few deer while driving and I think that Makenna managed to get some pictures. All in all another great trip!
