Lake adventures...

With as much as I talked about my mother's birthday on Friday's post, you'd think I'd have a birthday picture of my mother to share, but I don't.
 I do have evidence of one of the gifts I gave her. The handmade tag is of her as a little girl eating popcorn. She still loves popcorn (and so do the girls)!  Although I don't have any photo evidence, my sister and I did celebrate her birthday with some antiquing and visiting a quilt store near the cottage.   We had lots of fun.
Our nephews then spent the night at the a-frame and the girls had so much fun with their cousins.
The weather was perfect and lots of time was spent swimming in the lake.
 Smores and late night fishing were also on the agenda.
It was a perfect weekend to be outdoors.
Now, it's time to get back to reality. A busy work week awaits. New faculty orientation and lots of meetings are filling my University schedule.  I hope you had a wonderful weekend.  I'm counting down the days until next weekend!

Not fair that you have to work and everyone else gets to play! Cross off the days and you'll be back at the
A-Frame cottage before you know it!

I love your posts that show your lake house. Reminds me so much of the Summer's we spent growing up at our family lake house in Wisconsin.

Hope the week goes fast for you!
