Fun weekend in Minnesota

Dana and I just got back from a great weekend in Minnesota visiting my brother, his wife and daughter and my former pastor’s new church. As a born and raised Texan, my wife has never seen more than 2 inches of snow nor has she ever seen a frozen lake, let alone ride a snowmobile on one. It was great to see everyone again and do our premarital counseling 6-month follow-up (one month early) with Pastor Rol.

    Where did you find a frozen lake in MN? because seriously, i live in ND, realy close to MN, and we have nothing that frozen that I know of. at least where i would feel safe being on a snowmobile! brown christmas here, which i am kind of sad about!

    Looks like tons of fun, i’ve never ridden a snowmobile bit it looks sweet. Glad you got some snow for your visit! anything from the 80 degree weather here in houston sounds good.

    This was about an hour an a half northwest of Minneapolis. Last weekend was a unusually warm for them (in the 40s Fahrenheit), but some of the lakes were still frozen enough to play on. Fun times!

    Seriously, David. When Dana and I arrived back at our apartment in Dallas we felt weird turning on the air conditioning to cool it off a little. There’s just something wrong about having to use air conditioning a week before Christmas.
