summer daze

Hello all, I'm back! Well, I got back last night actually, but at that point I'd just gotten through quite a car ride (Minnesota and their road construction/late night detours, as well as the intense lightning storm) I basically just went to bed. But as today is quite a humid Sunday and I will apparently be spending it sweating to death on the golf course, I thought that I would put up some pictures from our fun little day up North! 

This day was actually perfect, weather-wise (and people-wise I guess it wasn't too bad ^^). It was a bit cloudy in the morning so we headed into town to do some shopping, where I caved to my love for satchels and bought this adorable black leather cross-body from a consignment shop, another old Coach. I just love the look of them, like little briefcases, you know? I just can't resist! Will show it off later

 Look Mckenna, you made the blog! We've been talking about how I need to do a little post devoted to Mckenna here, as she is a bit of a horse fanatic/expert and is therefore up on all the equestrian fashion, which is hot right now (as per usual, it's kind of classic don't you think?). Except that her adorable equestrian boots, unlike the equestrian fashion of the day, are actually meant for riding...

Yummy strawberry pie! This is actually one of two strawberry pies that we made, and the kind of sad one - it's a bit short on filling, as you may have noticed. That, however, didn't stop Mckenna and I from polishing it off in about 10 minutes (and proceeding to start in on the bigger one later that night). As you can see, it was a healthy day

View from the main cabin, which we got to stay in as the rest of the family was back in the Cities. As you can see we had a lovely view of the lake and the yard, where I (unsuccessfully) tried to catch frogs. I know, I'm a small child.

I can't believe that everyone's going back to school so soon! I mean, I still have about a month left here in the great state of Minnesota, but Beth goes back to NYC in about two weeks, and Mckenna heads back to the land of hippies and crunchy-granola people (no offense Colorado) soon thereafter. As excited as I am to be going back to school, days like yesterday remind me why I love being home! It's going to be a weird transition, going back. I suppose we'll just have to see...
