North Shore Vacation day #4

Well we are almost at the end of our vacation, this is day #4, Wednesday. We are now in Two Harbors at our lakehome. We are enjoying sitting outside listening to the loons and watching the kids throw rocks in the water and look for interesting things.

We didn't feel like doing much today, I suppose we had been running around so much since Sunday we wanted a relaxation day. So we went down to the shore to goof around

Our happy boy playing on the floor as we were all getting ready for the day

But the mid morning the kids were getting antsy so we decided to drive into downtown Two Harbors and see where the day took us.

As we were packing the diaper bag and getting the kids ready to head out, Zack decided he needed his morning nap, right there in the middle of the living room on the floor

We headed down to the ore docks to see if there were any ships, nope!

So we just did some walking, Wyatt thought the train tracks going straight into the water was so very cool and he had a million stories as to why tracks when into the water

After walking around for a few hours we headed back and had lunch. The kids wanted to get out and about so we headed down to Duluth to visit the Great Lakes Aquarium. It's the largest fresh water aquarium in the USA.

Pointing this out now, the aquarium does not allow any flash photography, so I had to go without my flash and well their lighting stinks! So moving kids, bad lighting equals please excuse the poor photos coming ahead. lol

After the aquarium we headed back up to Two Harbors and decided to eat at Betty's Pies. Everyone in MN raves about their pies, so we decided we just had to eat there. The food, not so good. But we did order a pie to go, strawberry rhubarb and YUMMY! So we were saved there

And that's that! The rest of the night was relaxing and enjoing our vacation. We got up the next morning and decided to head home, we had a lot of laundry to do and we were heading to the cabin that Friday. It was a great trip and I can't wait to to do again!

A cute picture before I go, we woke up Thursday morning to find Wyatt and Lucy snuggled up next to one another. Too cute!
