I think every red-blooded person (and not just my plaid-wearing, pumpkin-spice-loving self)) can agree that fall is probably the most beautiful and busiest time of the year. Looking back on the past two months, I feel that our family has done SO MUCH against the backdrop of autumn leaves and the perfect fall breeze.… Continue reading I Love Fall Most of All
Happy 4th of July weekend! We spent last Friday and Saturday up at my in-laws cabin. This was our first visit up there since last summer and we squeezed a whole lot into our 24 hour visit. Even though the weather was on the chilly side for July, none of the kids or their cousins hesitated about… Continue reading Return to the cabin!
Raise your hand if you thought last weekend was amazing and that every day should be Mother’s Day! Everyone? That’s what I thought. Not only was the weather phenomenal, but I got all treated nice and was bestowed with artwork, a cake, and some beautiful flowers. We also spent a couple days up at the… Continue reading Happy Belated Mother’s Day!
“I’m so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers.” -Anne of Green Gables Our weekend was mighty peaceful and relaxing. At least it was for me. Joe was summoned up to the cabin to help get things winterized (wood splitting, dock removal, etc.) While he got all sweaty and dirty, I had… Continue reading Cabin + October
As we’ve done the past six years, we applied our sunscreen and spent the Fourth of July in cabin style. We stayed only briefly, as we drove up Saturday morning and left after lunch on Sunday. So it was a whirlwind of food, cousin friends, fireworks, s’mores and sparklers. And hot dogs. So many hot… Continue reading Fourth of July, 2015
One last post about 2014… The day after Christmas, the girls and I headed up north to spend a few days at Joe’s parents’ cabin with the rest of his family. Unfortunately, Joe couldn’t come with us due to work, but I like to think that the girls and I did a good job representing.… Continue reading Cabin Christmas 2014
Summer is more than half over! It sounds devastating when phrased that way, doesn’t it? Fortunately, we have been having all sorts of chaotic and exhausting fun times. Below are a few more photos from Fourth of July weekend. (Boat photo taken by my sister-in-law Angela) And then we had a few… Continue reading All Things July
Hi! Hope you spent your Fourth of July doing relaxing, yet patriotic things. This was the third weekend in a row we packed up and left town. (I swear, all I’m doing lately is packing and unpacking, but it also makes me feel like we are doing summer right!) We spent this windy… Continue reading Fourth of July
We spent this blessedly warm Memorial Day weekend at the cabin with Joe’s family. The days were filled with good food, lots of littles running around in life jackets, and much sunscreen application. It felt like maybe, just maybe, this could be the beginning of summer. My hands tend to be full of baby these days,… Continue reading Memorial Day Weekend ’14
^^^Family pictures are tough, FYI! Even I don’t cooperate for them.^^^ Oh, Christmas. How quickly you come and how quickly you go. And what a gigantic mess of paper and packaging you leave in your wake. (It’s going to take me substantial time to sort the toys, properly recycle boxes, and reorganize… Continue reading A Cabin-y Christmas
