Where Have We Been...

You may ask? Keeping busy, that is for sure!
Sorry it has been so long since I posted a blog entry. We have been making progress here on the Lodge, but just not photo worthy progress. That makes me forget to update you on progress. More drywall has been hung and we got the door installed between the garage and utility room. However, Poppy has been distracted by other obligations and hasn't been able to do as much on the interior finishing.
This Friday Poppy takes off for his annual Canadian fishing trip, so that has kept him occupied. He is in charge of meals and taking groceries, so he has become a bargain shopper and is very excited about this year's trip. This will be the first time it has been just family. His two brothers, one nephew, two cousins and their sons. A total of 8 who should have a marvelous week together. He has also been busy redoing the brakes on his SUV, a dirty job that has entailed both front and rear brakes and ordering parts to complete the job.
But, we took time out to have lots of fun. This past weekend was 4th of July, so we got to celebrate with the kids and grands.
Libbers loved the new sand toys and staying close to shore in the sunshine on Friday.
But Katers did not disappoint her Mommy, as she loved the water and did not want to get out!
Saturday was a dreary, cloudy day but it didn't dampen much of the fun. When it rained lightly that evening, we just stayed up on the porch and stayed dry. GG was here for the whole afternoon and evening and got some great quality time with her two great grand daughters. This was very special! Libbers and Kate got their first sample of somores and LOVED them. It wasn't raining enough to douse our bonfire, so toasted marshmallows were possible.
Libbers was even old enough to stay up for the fireworks and lightening bugs, so that was a lot of fun to hear her reaction to all this excitement. The rain stopped in time for the fireworks to go off as scheduled, followed up by a slice of Grandmommy's turtle cheese cake before bed. YUMMY!
It is hard to believe summer is half over already. We hope to make some great progress on the drywall and all once Poppy is back from fishing and we finish out July. Enjoy your summer everyone!
