These are the "beautiful" Badlands on the way to Minnesota.
All of Tim's family stayed at a lodge north of Minnepolis for three days. It had 6 bedrooms and a large kitchen and sitting area. This is Kerry's husband, Darin, and Drew, aged 8.
Much time was spent sitting around and chatting.
Kerry and Darin's daughter, Devin, who is about the same age as Conrad, liked playing peek-a-boo.
The weather was cold but we enjoyed walks in the fall leaves.
Lots of time was spent looking over and dividing up old pictures.
Tim and all his siblings.
Kathy, the organizer of all food for the weekend!
Here are Tim's siblings. Chuck, Bev, Adelle, Roger, Darlene.
And us .
This is the inside of the lodge. Lots of room for people to sit.
