I am writing to you from Lutsen, Minnesota.  I spent the day driving up the north shore.  My husband John and sons Jake and Jim golfed at Superior Nationaly Golf Course.  It is ranked the #1 golf course in Minnesota.  Vlad does not like to golf so he went with me out to lunch and out to find a place to stay tonight.  We are at the Caribou Highlands townhomes and it is a fun resort.  There is a pool and gym and a big bon fire going on right now and we just ate pizza and watched some tv.  Tomorrow is Vlad's birthday and I still need to get some more presents.  YIKES!!  There's no place here to get that.

We are leaving for home tomorrow because Jake has to take the ACT Saturday morning. 

To get 4 tickets on Monday morning, blog Vlad a "Happy Birthday" comment.  I'll show him all the blogs that he gets.
