A big party in northern MN to celebrate my parent's 60th wedding anniversary and my dad's & my uncle's 80th birthdays? Neither hell nor high water could keep us away. Katie flew from NY to MSP Int'l Airport on Thursday evening and Weldon & I flew out from Greensboro on Friday morning, July 31. We met up with Anna and Marshall in the Charlotte airport. From there, we flew into Minneapolis/St.Paul and were met by Steve (my former husband) and Katie. We went to his home and visited for a while with him and his wife Teri. This was the first time for Weldon to meet them. From there, we took Grandma Esther's car (Steve had made arrangements for us to borrow it to save us some $$, thank you very much!) and headed north. We stopped for lunch in Rush City at the Firefly Bistro and then drove on to Cloquet.

You can read the rest of the story and see 150+ photos by clicking on the link below and reading the captions under the pics. There are 2 short videos of Esther talking at the end (second & third from the end), so make sure to check them out.

Lots of relatives and not much scenery, but hope you enjoy :-)
