We thought it would be fun to take a summer weekend and go biking and river floating. The Carver County Park, which is only a few minutes from our house, is the perfect place to bike, hike, snowshoe, cross-country ski, and do all sorts of outdoor things. The trails are in pristine condition and the scenery is breathtaking. In the winter time, whenever I feel like I can't take another minute of Minnesota's frozen tundra, I reminisce about the beauty of this park.
|Don't ask how many attempts it took us to get the phone camera set up on auto and positioned correctly. I lost count of how many times we took this picture.|
|After biking, we came back to our house to eat dinner. It was the first time we got to use our new deck and patio furniture with friends!|
|The next morning we went to The Original Pancake House. Jacob and I had never been there. Jacob ordered some sort of specialty German-type pancake.|
|I kept it simple. Bacon pancakes. You can't really go wrong if there's bacon involved.|
|Jacob, Cameron, and Kara|
|After tubing and warming up, went to a random and somewhat ghetto nearby game place that we found off the highway. When Kara and I saw these giant camp chairs, we of course, had to try them out.|
|At the game center, there were batting cages that we all tried our hand at. And I have to say, it was harder than it looked.|
