Bloggy Catch-Up

Oops...must be the dog-days of summer, but I'm certainly slacking on my blog lately! It's been almost 10 days since my last post, and that one was so short I don't know if it even counts. Anyway, I have three things to talk about over the course of the next few days, so stay tuned for: adventures at Big Star, my favorite flowers, and blonde moments!!!

Sunday after church, Mike and I left to go up north to Big Star Lake. His friend Brett's family has a trailer up there and they invited us up to spend the day with them. Another friend, Kevin, came with us. We got to the trailer a little after noon. It was a little chilly out, but the sun would occasionly come out from behind the clouds. We decided we might as well make use of the seadoos so we went around the lake a few times. Mike offered to let me drive, but I was afraid I wouldn't be able to find our dock, so I just let him drive. If you've never had the experience of flying over the water with the wind blowing through your hair, I highly recommend it :) We hit a few large waves, but for the most part the lake was pretty calm. It got cold out on the water so Mike and I headed back to the trailer for some hot chocolate. Brett and Kevin joined us a little later. And we all huddled around the heater, our feet were so cold!!! We watched some TV and just hung out and talked for awhile. Brett took us out and showed us where he likes to go off roading. He had his new car instead of his truck so we didn't actually go, but I got to see a lot of the area around the lake. Around 4, the guys decided to get the fire started so we could have dinner. I helped Brett's mom get the fixing's ready for pizza hobo pies. We ended up doing more talking than working, cuz there's really not much preparation needed for that type of dinner. The guys built us quite a nice fire and after a while we had some coals that were perfect for cooking our dinner. After dinner, Mike and I went for a walk. When we got back Brett and Kevin were out on the seadoos again. I asked Brett to take a few pictures of some of the houses for me, there are some beautiful houses up there!! Mike and I waited for them to come back. We packed up and headed home. It was great to have a day just to relax and enjoy the time with friends!

The sun was just starting to go down before we left so we watched it for a little bit from the dock

That nice wall of water? Yeah, that's Brett :)

This is our favorite house on the lake. Wouldn't it be the perfect spot for a Bed and Breakfast???


  1. It sounds like a fun day. I love that house - I'd stay there if it was a bed and breakfast!

  2. What a great day. That is a gorgeous house- beautiful!

  3. Looks like a lot of fun! Beautiful house too!
