Summer Vacation 2012

This year for our summer week away from home we went to a Gull 4 Seasons resort in Brainerd.  Eric's dad decided to book a whole week instead of just a long weekend.  The place had 5 bedrooms so it worked well for all the family to come and go.  Of course the weather is always an issue.  This year we had a couple rainy days and the bugs were bad.  So we had to plan our events around that but managed to still do a lot of different things.  Brayden got to go to the movies for the first time.  He lasted 20 mins before he wanted to get down and run. So on his first trip I took him out so it wasn't a full trip to the movies.  We did go-karts, mini-golfing, boat riding, turtle races, parks, shopping, throwing rocks, swimming in the pool, played video games, and of course fishing.  Chase and his cousins played a lot of Old Maid, Crazy 8's, and Go Fish to pass the bad weather bye.  Brayden tried to escape the place a couple times but with many eyes on him never got to far.  His favorite thing to do was throw rocks and the beach had plenty of those so he was in heaven.  We enjoyed the week away and much needed time with the boys and family. Wish we had more weeks each year to get together!!
Many pictures below from the week of fun.

Brayden loved the A&W Bear he would hug it and laugh at it.
Chase on his own go-kart track.  He loved it just got in the car and away he went.  He got to go around the track for 5 mins which was a long enough.
