Trip Introduction:
A family adventure in the BWCAW
Day 1 of 6
Let me start off by saying that this trip was memorable in SO many ways! If you haven't taken an opportunity to spend some time in the Northwoods with your families, you are missing an incredible opportunity to bond at such a deeper/better level that only the Northwoods can bring about. My Wife, our four children (18, 16, 13 and 9) My wife's parents and a friend of the family hoped into our two minivans and took on a trip of a lifetime...

Day 1 & Day 2 We had the right trip plan for the trip to Seagull Outfitters (better than the trip home!) We left Kansas City and drove to Des Moines and spent the night with family. Imagine, if you will, 7 people in a minivan with a weeks worth of food and clothing! Enjoyed time spent with my Mom and Brothers sipping ice cold beverages on the deck and watching there faces as their envy of my upcoming trip became clear. The next morning, Monday, we are off to Minneapolis where we had booked hotel rooms near the Mall of America. We spent the day shopping at the mall (my obligation to get my wife to consider a trip fishing for a week) and the kids enjoyed the afternoon at Nickelodeon Universe.
