Summer is quickly coming to an end, the mornings and evenings are getting cooler, the days shorter, and the smell of fall is in the air. This year we planned our first trip “Up North” and experienced a piece of Minnesota culture. The summers are so beautiful it’s understandable why Minnesotans spend summer days at the cabins of friends and family.
We spent one of the final weeks of summer three and a half hours away at Half Moon Trail Resort with five other families from our circle of friends. What a wonderful week surrounded by wonderful people. It was so fun watching all of our little ones play, make memories, and enjoy nature. We stayed in a cabin with beautiful water views, enjoyed a camp potluck, bingo, and daily trips to the lodge for ice-cream!
Half Moon Trail sits on Boot Lake and the water is incredibly clear. Little J loved to go fishing with daddy. He would exclaim, “Oh wow” each time daddy pulled up a new catch. His favorite part was throwing each “feeesh” back into the water, one at a time. He would toss the last fish in the lake, look in the empty buck of water, look at daddy and say, “mor feeesh, mor feeesh.”
A kiss before he gets tossed back!
A cooler morning started with story time in the lodge and cuddles with Mommy.
Warm sun, soft sand, and clear water!
We met several family who have made Half Moon Trail a family tradition for years and it’s easy to see why. This place is such a treasure! Ryan and Liz, the resort owners are just the sweetest, kindest people you could ever meet. We hope to make many more memories in the future visiting Half Moon Trail.
And now… my fall decoration tubs are calling my name from the basement! It’s time to put away all my summer red, white, and blue and get ready for pumpkin spice, apple cider, and cool crisp mornings!
