I heart Mike and Julie. We just enjoyed the best weekend! Big thanks to our friendly neighbors who took us up to their Highlighter Cabin. The kids had so much fun packed into one day and two nights that they’ve ever had. It might as well have been Club Med or a spa for me because Julie planned and cooked every meal and provided paper and plastic utensils so there was no cleanup. You heard me right. I felt like I had signed up for the best vacation ever. AND we got to take the dog. NO kidding.
Ben spent most of the time playing with Marcie and her kennel.
Cole had his first tubing experience! We loved their 1971 boat (we are such boat newbies).
The cutest little “island” in the middle of the lake where we played in the sand for hours!
Gabe had the most fish caught – at least 11 and I wasn’t keeping track! He had bluegill, crappie, catfish, largemouth bass and a white bass. I think. Very nice casting skills for a 7 year old!
Jack caught his first fish or two – including the cutest catfish. I say they’re cute while they’re kittenfish but when they get to be catfish…ugly!
Not to be outdone by his boys (cough cough), Don had a little fun fishing as well…THANKS, MIKE & JULIE (and Marcie the dog)! WE HAD A BLAST. Call me if you need some Prozac. I don’t actually have any but I could probably talk you down off the ledge.
oh, that brings back memories of “our” lake in minnesota! i’m so glad you guys had such a fun time–the boys sure are getting big and tall!
Liz and Don,
Thanks for the kind words. We did enjoy having you out. The best was Cole getting stuck in the intertube.
…plus he christened your dock by being the first to fall in! Everything was so nice that I don’t think I could just pick one thing. We owe you big time! I could stand anybody else’s kids for as long as you did mine!!!
looks like a great time!
We had a ton of fun – what are your summer plans, Liz?
That looks like a lot of fun, just hanging out at the lake. I am so jealous!! Ben playing in the dog kennel, are you not telling us something???
looks like you had a great time! my husband would have been in heaven with all those fish! way to catch em’! i’m so happy i can leave comments on your site now!
Ilise – if only (re: dog kennel)! He tortured their dog Marcie (he prounced it Moosie) all weekend. Of course, leaving his own dog alone… I want to have you and Kathleen come with me to the pool/gym sometime in July. Let me know what days are best for you! We can hit a class then swim or just take the kiddos swimming…whatever you want to do!
Kara – I am so jealous – how many caribbean type trips have you taken??? I have never even been in a cruise! Soooo very jealous. Always good to hear from you.
Hello there! Love the website – thanks for sharing all the games and books, the children will love them!
Could you send me an email as we discussed? I would appreciate it!
