In mid July I flew to Minnesota to my family reunion on my mom's side. I have not seen my mom for a year so it was fun to see her and my sister Gabby. We went up into Northern Minnesota to go camping and swimming in the lakes. Unfortunately, Minnesota was on a state shut down because they were having money issues so some of our favorite parks were closed. We still got to go to Saw bill Lake and swim, and it was definitely a lot cooler in Minnesota than it has been in Tennessee.
