catching up still...

whew...
last post of the day...LOL!
had to fill you in on our weekend!
(as brief as possible...)
Monday..
went to TINKERTOWN for the afternoon with the kids and pal Rachel...met with Nikki and Taylor there for a fun, fun ride day!
( and what would tinkertown be without cotton candy, mini donuts, slushies and gigantic pickles? )




"rockin" on the ferris wheel....

...scootin' on the coaster...


rachel, courtney and i went on this bigger roller coaster together a couple times...the first drop is actually quite a drop when you're in the hotseat!!!

Monday late afternoon:
grabbed McD's (yuck) on our way out to the cabin at Gull Lake and arrived at our cute little cozy cabin around 6pm for 3 more fun filled days!!!


( sorry,couldn't resist the "call of the geese"...had to grab my camera )

Tuesday was a little cooler out so we stayed close to the cabin with lots of bike rides on the roads and the bike trails...then we baked choc.chip cookies ( yummy ) and made some fun crafts using fusing perler beads...the girls wanted to get their swim suits on for a dip and to try and catch some minnows...

heeheehee...
we later had a bonfire with marshmallows and a late night movie of "surf's up" before bed!
Wednesday was a busier day...after pancakes and eggs for breakfast, we headed out to Beausejour for the afternoon. stopped at Prairie Scrapbooking, and then off to Great Woods Park for some exploring! the kids LOVED the suspension bridge over the river, climbing on rocks IN the river, catching frogs and seeing lots of turtles...we stopped at Robyn's DriveIn for lunch and then on our way back to the cabin, we stopped at a farmer's field of sunflowers for a photo shoot...of course!! ( wink )





and then when we got back, the girls wanted to catch some minnows again

Courtney-1
and then have another dip in the lake! too cold for me but they had a fun little swim!
...and yet another bonfire! but this time we cooked our dinner ( hotdogs ) on the fire and had S'mores for dessert!! (yummy stuff) we ended our last night with a game of Aggrivation (have to play that at least once when you're at the cabin ) and then another movie (Fly Away Home-i love this movie) with LOTS of treats and WONKA candy, popcorn and chips...sooooo bad, but soooo fun and relaxing!
(sigh)
and now we're back home to hustle and bustle...did 5 loads of laundry today and finishing up my September newsletter for my classes....got a BIG order in the day we left for the cabin so i went through it all last night...getting my september kit ready to photograph and post tomorrow...planning lots of projects and finishing up lots of others...
yep, gonna be a late night of productivity, i hope!!
( man, i could go for this right now....)
