Last Sunday after church, we drove over to Stillwater, MN to spend a relaxing afternoon on the St. Croix River. Our friends, Pat and Melissa, were our gracious hosts. The weather was beautiful, the river was beautiful. But, as with the Twins game, the best part is just hanging out and catching up with friends that we haven’t seen for a long time. When I spend a day like this enjoying the sun and the water, it’s easy to forget how super-cold this place gets in the winter!
