In the hustle and bustle of everyday life, I tend to forget that we live in a really beautiful, unique city. There is so much to do, with new things and businesses opening every month, one cannot complain about being bored in this town. However, I've lived in this area for 95% of my life, and there are some major attractions that I am a little embarrassed to admit that I have never been to.

Just last summer was the first time I had ever been to Gordy's Hi-hat in Cloquet. I guess now that I have a child, I want to make sure that he is experiencing everything that this area has to offer. Which is a lot! I felt a little better hearing that Chris had not been to about the same amount of things as me. I will blame it on the short summers around here, we tend to try and cram everything into three short months and then complain about how short our summers are. Vicious circle.
