Weekend in Alexandria with the Family

Many years ago, my Grand Mary owned a cabin on Lake Ida in Alexandria, Minnesota.  As a kid, I spent a lot of time up there swimming, fishing, playing, and even snake catching with my family (just my brother and dad on the last one…) and it was the best way to spend summer!  Ten years later, a client reached out to me to shoot their wedding out this way, and I was happy to oblige.  When I bragged to my family that I was going back to our stomping grounds, they jumped at the opportunity to turn it into a long overdue, mini family vacation.

  We rented a small cabin on Lake Carlos (as close as we could get to our old place) and spent the later part of Friday, all day Saturday, and Sunday morning together.  We rented a pontoon on Sunday, and like old times, climbed aboard for a classic long boat ride.  It was a bit cloudy and windy, but the sun did come out eventually to warm us up enough for my husband and I to swim.  My brother and dad fished, my mom and grandma pointed out their dream cabins and homes on the lake, overall, it was the perfect day.  It had been too long since we had all been on a boat because we forgot how intense the sun can be reflecting off the water.  All of us are rocking the raccoon eyes today with pink cheeks- well worth it.   It was the perfect way to end the min trip, and I am so grateful for the time I got to spend back in Alex!
