Last weekend, Ben and I joined some friends for a canoeing trip (baby bump and all!) down the Crow River by Huntersville, MN. We canoed a total of 24 miles — jumping off the bridges along the way, catching turtles, stopping for picnics by the riverside, swimming, starting water fights, and settling down for the evening around a campfire to roast marshmallows before talking into the wee hours of the morning (well, some of us). It was so good to get in the fresh air and full sun after weeks of rain up here in northern Minnesota!
