Itasca State Park

Over the 4th, Lee & I decided to take a day trip to the headwaters of the mighty Mississippi [as I typed that just now i sang in my head M-I-SS-I-SS-I-PP-I]. We had both been before, but seeing the world together is a whole lot better. Creating "us" memories as I like to call them. We rented beach cruiser bikes & rode all around the park. We only had one minor accident - one in which I saw my entire life flash before my eyes. The story goes like this:

Lee braked abruptly in front of me to do a trick & had no clue that I was directly behind him because usually I'm quite slow, so I had to hit my brakes fast and went flying through the handle bars as a crowd of about 10 was gathered to peek at the map nearby... I cried mostly due to embarrassment...A lady in that crowd brought us her first aid kit and another kind woman brought us an ice cold water bottle...MN nice I tell ya...He bought me DQ on our way home...My knees are nearly healed. 

Exploring this big beautiful world on day trip's with this boy as a fiance makes me so excited for real vacations as a married couple where we can stay the night or week anywhere we please.
