Labor Day

We were able to get away as a family this Labor Day….so get ready for the plethora of pictures.  Sad story, I was in such a hurry to get out of town and drive the many hours to our camp spot…..that I forgot my camera battery that I was charging on my kitchen counter.  So all of these are iPhone pics.

Friday Wrap Up – Vacation style

Here is a recap of the amazing vacation that we took over 4th of July this year.  We decided to rent a cabin on the Canadian side of Lake Metigoshe.

We crossed the border at Carbury, ND and traveled through the land of Manitoba to the north side of Lake Metigoshe.  The cabin is situated right where the C is.

Canada1Dave had the boat out on the lake for roughly 10 minutes….bringing it from the boat launch to the slip….when it blew a piston.  Sob.  Long….long….long….story short.  A very nice Canadian offered us his boat for the week and saved our vacation.

Here are some pics celebrating the awesomeness of vacation, kids, and 4th of July.

Christmas and people wanting gift ideas….ehhh

I am at the point in life where I am really, really, REALLY bad at narrowing down gift items.  I can pick gifts for others…but myself?  No way.  In an effort to be helpful…hehehehe…… I have come up with the below list of stuff I would probably never get for myself.  In order to come up with this list, I picked the first 6 things that came to my mind.  Never-mind price or practicality (hello, Puppy?)…Nobody but mister is going to get me a $400 mixer.  🙂

The Quickest Christmas list....ever

Rose Quartz Amethyst Diamond – Let’s get some jewelry on this list

Amazon.com – More Kitchen gadgets!!!

File Goldendoodle puppy.jpg – Who doesn’t want a puppy?  A snugly puppy to love

Are you terrible at proposing gift ideas for yourself??
In other news…..I really enjoy the holiday season…especially with young kids….more on that in the next post.
