Life in General

Home Away from Home

We decided at the last minute to head to our cabin for the weekend.   Took the fishing boat, books to read, and lots of yummy food.  And just simply relaxed.  It was amazing.

Avery had a blast!  She went fishing with Daddy all Saturday afternoon, and left me behind at the cabin.  Don’t feel bad for me, that I missed out.  I spent the afternoon sitting in the sun, reading…oh and maybe took a little nap.  It was a slice of heaven.

Since we don’t have running water or a bathroom (there is an outhouse) we spent Saturday and Sunday in town at the hotel – where we can pay $4 each to swim, hot tub and use the showers.

Friends of ours were there too – with their Quads.  Avery had fun tooling around camp with Terri and Hubby.  Don’t worry – she wore a helmet when they actually took off but it didn’t bode well for the photo op.

Michigan is not called the Great Lake State for nothing.  In addition to the biggies – there are tons of inland lakes that are simply breathtaking.  One happens to be 10 minutes from the cabin.  The water is so clear that at 40 feet, you can see the bottom.  We took a tour by boat on Sunday afternoon.  Even I threw caution (and balance issues) to the wind and went for a ride.

There’s the little First Mate, with her Scooby Doo life jacket on.  And the kids in the boat are our friends’ youngins.  There were the flower girl and ring bear at our wedding. 

Avery took a big liking to these two and followed them EVERYWHERE.  On Saturday night Dustin came in, exasperated, and said “Man, she asks a lot of questions!”  Every adult in the room laughed.  He didn’t want to believe that he used to be the same way!

It took us twice as long to get home as it did to get up there.  A long time with a watermelon sitting on my bladder.  But it was the last official “Three of Us” vacation and well worth it!
