Minnesota 2015, Day 7. 8 Heading Home

Our drive home from the lake to Minneapolis was easy until we arrived  outside Minneapolis where we caught up with the rain storm and awful construction zones. 

We headed home on a full Sun Country plane the next day and even though we left 45 minutes late we nearly caught up with our scheduled noon arrival in the air.

Good to be home.
