Highs and Lows....
We enjoyed a great weekend away. It is always a relaxing time when we spend the weekend at our cabin and this was no exception. The weather was perfect (70's), the sun was bountiful, and the woods are still filled with green.
We also had a great time hiking just the five of us....except that Kate coincidentally "forgot" her sneakers. We pushed on and bless her little heart, not one complaint walking three miles in flip-flops! The surroundings were breathtaking.
It wasn't all fun and relaxation - but that's okay. The guys pulled a few logs and split some wood to fill our woodshed. There is never a shortage of work around the woods and the family has decided to embark on an addition to accomodate our growing numbers.
Can you spot the cutest little helper? And, yes, that's right - Rob was using my truck to pull the logs out of the woods!
Along with all of the fun and relaxation, there were some lows....
-trying to help Rob install the ceiling [in our bedroom to be] and realizing that the boards are warped and that we're two boards short.
-watching Rob tear our four-wheeler apart and realize that the back end is ruined.
-using an entire Magic Eraser to clean the tiny shower.
-cleaning the wood floor and having to throw away the cloth because it's so disgusting.
But then - there were some highs....oh, there were highs....
smores with milky ways--Rob enjoyed placing the graham crackers directly onto the fire ring....the graham crackers toasted nicely and the results were reminiscent of a smores pop-tart! Please don't pretend you've never had one.
