North Shore Vacation Day #3 Part 2!

After we had dinner at Sven and Ole's, we headed back down towards our lakehome, it was going to be a 1.5 hour drive without any stops. About 20 minutes outside of Grand Marais is Cascade Park, Mark and I had our honeymoon here so it always holds special meaning to us.

We didn't think we were going to stop, the kids were tired and ready to get to our lakehome, but I told Mark we just needed to, it was vacation and who knows when we would be back up there again.

So we did, we hiked up to see the Cascade river and all the beautiful falls along the way. Now the river may look dirty, but it's not, it's tannic acid, so it makes it brown foamy. Kinda like a root beet float :)

I wish the weather had been better, it was grey and overcast so my pictures didn't come out as well as I had hoped, but mother nature has her own thing, so you take what you get right?

We got to our lakehome around 6:30 and wow, it was so beautiful! We were wishing we would have stayed there the entire time. The views were amazing and it was our own private cabin. When we got all of our things inside, the sun popped a few times and I went to to the lake to snap a few pictures and I got these

We took all 3 kids swimming before bed, Zack had a great time splashing and watching the kids jump off the deep end to Mark. it was a great end to a great day!
