Summer vacation: so close yet so far. I'm very close to throwing all my papers out the window. You heard me. Despite the fact that I'm on the verge of going insane, I have maintained enough of my composure to write up a blog post. In honor of this coming summer (and to help me through these last few weeks of school) I thought I'd share with you what a summer trip to my family cabin looks like.
My family cabin isn't just a weekend getaway where we spend the day swimming and cooking out and then fall asleep on the way home that same evening. No no, my family cabin is more like a run-down resort crawling with daddy long legs - in the most charming and nostalgic way possible, of course. It takes us four hours to get to our northern Minnesota destination, and when we do get there, we stay for a while.
Just to further orient your imagination, when I say "cabin," I should really be saying "cabins." My family (that is, extended family - aunts, uncles, cousins 500 time removed) owns land in northern Minnesota, land that we built cabins on. Now don't go crazy on me, thinking that we have like 50 log cabins and a water park and all that. It's 5 small to medium sized cabins - no more, no less. We have a pretty nice beach though, not going to lie.
|Just ignore the seaweed on the shoreline - I never said it was a Caribbean beach. NORTHERN MINNESOTA, PEOPLE.|
|Cotton Candy and Licorice Chip - don't judge. And yes, of COURSE I ate the whole thing. Who do you think I am?|
|My hole-in-one. This was achieved out of sheer luck, I assure you.|
Leave a comment telling me what you're looking forward to this summer, or where you'd like to go!
