Late Summer Family Vacation

Great Savings on End-Of-Summer Family Vacation! It's that time of year again when all the big retailers are starting to push back-to-school sales. I hate the reminder that pretty soon our schedule will be dictated by what time the school bus arrives and how much homework there is to get done in the evening. We will even have to start setting an alarm again.  The horror! The good news (at least for most Minnesota kids) is that we still have 30 days before ... Read more

Family Vacation = Lifetime Memories

Make "Forever" Memories on Your Family Vacation As I've reached my mid-40s I realize more everyday that I'm living the middle age cliché. My youngest is mortified by my car dancing while listening to 80s music with the windows down. I am constantly surprised by the person who looks back at me from the mirror. (Who IS that forty-ish woman and why did she tan with baby oil as a teen?!) And my memory is truly terrible - I'd give you an ... Read more

Family Vacation – Make Time to Make Memories!

Yesterday I got a call from a family that has been vacationing at Wildwood for many years. She was calling to let us know that they wouldn't be able to come to Wildwood this year. As she was relating to me the reasons for their cancellation I could hear the regret and sadness in her voice because their kids love coming here and they have made great memories during their Wildwood family vacations. I can't tell you how many times I've had a similar conversation over ... Read more

Minnesota Ice Fishing – Bass Lake Bluegill!

Bass Lake Bluegill Anyone?? The winter of 2015 has been a big downer so far for those of us who enjoy snowmobiling in Minnesota. Our snow accumulation has dwindled to a measly 3-4 inches which is a long way from establishing good snowmobile trail conditions. :( The only positive to a "no snow winter" is that ice fishing is easy when you can travel anywhere on the lake by vehicle. And I'm not just talking about trucks and SUVs - we’ve seen some folks on ... Read more

Ice Fishing in Minnesota In Full Swing!

Ice Fishing on Bass Lake - Grand Rapids, MN New Year's weekend Jay and some of our friends hit Bass Lake for the first time this year. He was surprised to find ice depth of almost 24"! I guess it isn't too much of a surprise considering the cold weather we've been experiencing. Our snowfall in the last couple of weeks has been unimpressive! However, the lack of snow combined with very cold temps means that the ice conditions are awesome. And lake ... Read more

Winter Resorts – Not Just For Summer Anymore!

Minnesota Winter Resorts Instead of a Hotel! Do you travel for hockey? Maybe your kids are big basketballers? I know a woman from church who seems to travel every weekend to either her son's hockey tournament or her daughter's gymnastic meet. You would think that Jay and I would be big travelers in our off season since we're so tied to Wildwood for 8 months of the year. However, we are two of the biggest homebodies you've ever met. We like our ... Read more

Minnesota Ice Fishing – Let It Freeze!

Minnesota Ice Fishing Season Is Here! Yep - that was our temperature yesterday morning: a balmy 3 degrees with a wind chill of -17. Yikes! As I took the dog out for a walk today I was unpleasantly surprised by the burn-your-face-off cold wind that was blowing in from the northwest. It doesn't seem that long ago that we were pulling docks out in our t-shirts! But thinking like that will only make us crabby so I've decided to look on the bright side. ... Read more

Here Comes Winter in Minnesota!

Ice Fishing, Snowmobiling and Relaxing Winter Get-Aways Have you ever been driving down a highway and you see something in the distance that you can't quite make out? You know it's something but until you get a little closer you aren't too sure if it's a deer or a mailbox. That's how I feel about the coming winter in Minnesota. The only difference is that I know EXACTLY what is ahead even if we can't see it clearly yet. We've already had several hard freezes ... Read more
