Our last day
Saturday would be our last “real” day of vacation as we had to drive back to Bemidji all day Sunday. But Ray had a rule: No mentioning “tomorrow” (or Sunday) throughout all of Saturday. Nice rule.
Our friends from college, Christopher and Jenny, came and stayed at the KOA Thursday and Friday nights so we could all hang out and our girls could play together. Aliyah is 2 ½ and Lola loved having a playmate!
We spend Saturday morning shopping in some area towns before heading to Sylvan Lake to go swimming. It was 85 or something, so we figured that swimming would be refreshing.
Well, refreshing is one word. Another would be freezing! It was so cold that the girls were shivering. So we spent most of the time in the beach or in the really, really shallow water.
It was still a very fun time (up until Ray lost the keys to the rental in the lake, but Christopher found them submerged in about 5 feet of water about an hour later).
Our last evening was spent around the campfire outside of the our friends’ cabin. Which meant the girls got super filthy while digging and rolling around in the dirt.
Vacations just never last long enough…
