A few weeks ago I was able to escape the concrete jungle of the Twin Cities and get up north and back to my family. We have a lake place nestled up about an hour north of my hometown near the Boundary Waters Canoe Area.
No neighbors, no roads, no electricity and no stress.
My parents, my little sister and I had a great weekend relaxing, working on the property, swimming, soaking up the sun and spending time together. With my folks dodging me and my ever watchful camera and Theresa following me around hoping I would shoot her, I was able to take some photos to capture our weekend together.
When my father wasn’t teaching Theresa how to captain his little fishing boat and the Johnson 5.5 he was working hard on the upkeep of the property. My mother spent a lot of her time making meals for the four of us and reading in the yard when the sun decided to peek between the clouds. Theresa nipped at my heels the entire weekend. Whether we were indoors, on the boat, in the water or I was walking around taking photos she was always close by - I love the time her I spend together.
It’s weekends such as these that allow me to recharge my batteries - and with a new school year quickly closing in, Lord knows I need it. It will get busy around here in no time.
