After camp Mike and I honeymooned in Brainerd, MN. His aunt has a cabin on Round Lake up there and we were able to relax and enjoy the peace and quiet for a whole week. After we departed from Green Lake, drove through Wisconsin, made it through the twin cities, hit a few rain storms, and waited through plenty of construction – we made it! It took about 8 hours with stops and adjusting to the “long route” that my phone decided to take us on. It was an adventure but definitely worth it.
We spent the first couple days sleeping a lot. After two weeks of camp with 40+ little kiddos we were exhausted. Mike wasn’t too exhausted to make me breakfast in bed though. He’s so thoughtful. After we recovered a little bit we spent some time in town exploring some shops and eating lots of great meals. We also spent lots of time on the water, watching the olympics, fishing, making smores, and taking naps.
Some highlights: Grizzlies, riding bikes around walmart, pedicures, geeking out in a board game store, almost buying a puppy, playing bocce ball, laying in the hammock, mini golf, buffalo wild wings 3 nights in a row, completing the Bourne series, jetskiing to Ernies for lunch, 3+ hours wandering around Gander Mountain, and watching the sunset every evening on the water. Needless to say, we had a wonderful time and we are already planning honeymoons 2, 3, 4, & 5. Mike has decided that honeymoons shouldn’t just happen after a wedding but all the time – I agree wholeheartedly.
Be back soon!
