We just returned home after Solon and I had been gone for 11 days and Scott and Cy for 5 days. We spent some time relaxing and enjoying family and fun at Pelican Lake (near Fargo, ND and Detroit Lakes, MN). The next several posts will detail the weeks for you. While we were gone Solon turned 11 months and Cy (our dog) turned 4. Solon is at the age where he is hitting so many milestones...it was fun to be able to share those moments with other family members. He learned to clap, eat table food including pancakes, goldfish, toast, a cookie (thanks Grandma :-), and pizza. He loved, loved, loved the water and went to sleep on almost every fast-paced boat ride we took. He even sat on the jetski and "tubed"....he is a real lakekid in the making! Cy of course laid down and would not get up when we had to leave. She was in the water from morning until night. My mom and I looked for lake places closer to our home this past week too. We narrowed the search to Lake Minnetonka. Hopefully, the sale of their house and lake house will provide a shorter distance drive to something the whole family loves! We will keep our fingers crossed...hope you all had a joy-filled 4th of July!
