Just got back to Vermont from a 4 day visit to North Dakota. We stayed with my husband’s grandparents in Minot (pronounced Minut by locals). On the flight from Minneapolis to Minot we started feeling like we were in the movie Fargo and “you betcha!” was heard often.
My husband’s parents drove over from Montanta (7 hours) to spend time with us too before we leave for the UK. One day we drove out to the lake house and my husband and I drove around on Grandpa Scottie’s golf cart, one day we drove 2 hours to the US/Canadian border to the Peace Gardens, and every day we cooked out with my husband’s family! Here are some of my favorite shots from our visit.
