Monday 4th –
A lazy day for all at the house.
Sleeping in, drinking good coffee once again, relaxing and not having to look presentable 😋
Us girls went outside to get some jogging/strength stuff done with and Mike entertained the girls on the swing set.
They were excited to have a guy around for a change and Uncle Mike is pretty patient with their requests 😏
Lunch was a small buffet of fruits, dips, crackers, cheeses and salsa.
After some point we went outside to check our big lawns strawberry patch 😁🍓
The crop has been rather impressive this year😏
Us kids had planned on making an above par meal for a late anniversary celebration supper for mom and dad and that was the night to do it.
We had purchased T-bones and sparkling cider at Costco and Nathin got fresh Alaskan crab from town to soak in butter (and lemon juice for me).
Greek salad, mushrooms and garlic toast accompanied those two mains and it was a delicious meal indeed 😍🍽
Coffee and barbecued peaches with honey and pecans were the finishing touch👌🏻
Dinners are loud and full of love with everyone being able to be together.💕
(Always missing Joshua though😔)
Once everything had had ample time to settle, Nathin and Mike headed out for some badminton 🏸
Tuesday 5th –
Into town for pre cabin errands we went.
Dad and Mike headed to get cedar boards for Shauna (the shower house/sauna) and they dropped off Pro, Al and I at Walmart, saying they’d pick us up in half an hour.
We finished at the bank and Walmart, slightly hurrying so the guys wouldn’t be waiting for us.
We ended up waiting for them in the hot afternoon weather for 40 minutes 😑☀️
Luckily I bought some cookies and cream Hershey bites to keep our spirits up.
I’d actually been curious about how they tasted for literally years… It was time to let my curiosity be answered 😜
All of us were experiencing hunger pains so Asian Lee was happily chosen, by Pro and I 😁
We went to the library to try to get a few movies and books together for cabin entertainment and Brynlee found a stool that was her size.
She loves small chairs and furniture 😋
Mike was neeeeeding his turtle cheesecake from Dr. Java’s and they had iced coffees on for 1.75$ so we tested two of those out.
Becca, Nathin and Spencer came over for a little bit and Spencer was dressed in the first ever gift given to Becca for him, from Mike and I.
From premie to plump in 9 months😜💕
As I was drying dishes I came across an odd looking contraption and asked mom what it was for.
Her reply was that she had got it in a box at an auction and it was for pitting cherries but it didn’t work.
I suggested I throw it away for her, she suggested I not 😜
The deal was made I would test its ability on two cherries and then I could throw it out honestly, whatever it takes mom 😆
The sky was boasting some pretty interesting clouds so a few of us ventured out to take some pictures and then play some badminton📷🌥🏸
