Over the fourth we were lucky enough to travel to Minnesota to spend time with the husfriends family. This crew is crazy and full of energy and caused me to take multiple naps while on this trip. Not even kidding. Cody’s family lives in a small town called Alexandria. I had never been there before, and was expecting a small town feel where everyone knows each others name and shops are teeny tiny. But good news folks, they have a Target, Walmart and multiple restaurants to boot. Not as small as I imagined.
Before we left Minneapolis and the mall of america ( I have priorities people) we stopped to see Grandpa Towley. This is Cody’s grandfather who left us 5 years ago to a battle with cancer. I met him twice, but he really was a brilliant kind man, the world is a worse off place without him in it.
On the morning on the fourth we joined extended family at their family cabin. Now this is more of a tiny wood cabin with 2 rooms a kitchen and a bathroom. But it was cute and had charm and was right on the lake.
The rest of the trip was spent with family doing water sports and in Cody’s case getting stung by a wasp on the eyelid. No joke, it was swollen for 3 days. I got my nice beige tan on (cause I am like 14 shades lighter than everyone out there) I finally have color!! I tubed down a river with fish and goo, it was an experience, did unlimited bowling with cousins, ate my weight in yummy food and took hours of naps. Guys, ‘Tiny-sota’ is beautiful in the summer, but I HIGHLY don’t recommend a winter trip. I have done that once and it is FREEZE your BUTTCHEEKS off cold. Literally you would have nothing to sit on..
I will definitely be doing a repeat visit this place is just too relaxed and pretty to not. Have you been to Minneapolis, what are your top to do things there?
