Family Weekend in Duluth, Minnesota

After stuffing ourselves silly on Thanksgiving, we took advantage of the long weekend and the warm weather and headed north to the Duluth Area with my family. We stayed in a camper cabin in Jay Cooke State Park. Hani enjoyed that the cabins were each named after a different type of rock found in the area #novanerd! We love camper cabins at this time of year, they are super cozy and affordable. All you have to bring is bedding and food!

The weekend was perfect! We played by the river in Jay Cooke, hiked for a bit, ate dinner in Duluth with Ari's parents and then visited Bentelyville.
