Summer from A to Z

I always say that those of us who live in the snowy tundra part of the Midwest appreciate summer more than any other part of the country. We take those 3 short months of glorious weather and take advantage of it as much as we can. And I never want to hear my kids say they didn't do anything fun over summer. And to prove it- I have their summer from A to Z!

We stopped at Bay Beach for the first time this summer on the way up to Door County. SO so cool!! So much better than Como Zoo's amusement park in St. Paul. You most definitely made the most of the summer. I hear you on the part about having to to get through the cold winters. Dreading the upcoming winter season.
