Today, once I leave this place called  hell  work, I'll be on VACATION until Sunday!  Steve and I are driving up to Duluth this evening, about 2.5 hours from our house, staying overnight - hoping to meet up with a couple of friends who live up there for a cocktail or two - then tomorrow (Thursday) morning we'll wake up and eat a nice greasy breakfast (gotta love little dive diners) and finish our drive to Grand Marais, MN (which is approx. another 2.5 hours beyond Duluth).  Grand Marais is on the North Shore of Lake Superior - one of our nations GREAT Lakes!  I'd say it's Superior to the rest ;)

The plan is to relax, eat lots, go to Canada and see a new waterfall, and then relax some more.

For those of you that are out of state, you may have heard on the National News that our state government is shutdown - which means all of our BEAUTIFUL State Parks are closed.  This makes me EXTREMELY sad, but we'll have to make the best of it.

Remember when I posted last summer pictures of our trip to the Black Hills, complete with pictures with our World's Best Donuts coffee mugs?  Well, I emailed them the pictures and they should be hanging in the shop - soo... no big deal or anything, but we'll be famous in the town we're in!

Steve's parents rent a little cabin up there, so we'll be staying with them - it's our 3rd summer going up there together and staying with them!  I can't wait.  So much beauty up there and lots of relaxing!

Have a wonderful rest of the week everybody!

I am so sad about what's going on with MN's government. It's so frustrating and I really hope something positive can happen soon.

Nonetheless, I hope you and Steve have a great vacation! Please said hi to Duluth for me!

I have to say I'm definitely jealous that you are going up north! I love Duluth and Grand Marais and I haven't been to Canada through MN since I was 15 and I'm dying to go again but no passport! Are you going to Pigeon Falls or Kakabeka Falls? Have fun!!
