Up North and weekly up date..

I love going Up North to our niece's family cottage. It's about a 3 1/2 hour drive to Lewiston. Their cottage is in the woods a few hundred feet from a lake. Like most kids the girls love to play in the water and collect shells and rocks. My niece and I like to sit and watch them while sipping our favorite adult beverages! Gary and Krista have a pontoon boat, four-wheelers, jet-ski's, a golf cart ...all the toys so we are never bored. Then there is the BOAT. Bob's hydro-plane. The guys put that thing in the lake and every single time it breaks! High powered toys are just too finicky. I can't begin to understand why they think it's fun.

So...Bob... sigh.. he has been having some shortness of breath. He went to 3 of his many many doctors this week and ended up in the hospital yesterday for tests...yep, yesterday, our 27th anniversary! He may come out tomorrow, it all depends on the what the test results are. So far they haven't found much and he feels ok.

My sis in law has lost 17 lbs and is training for a 1/2 marathon! She has totally inspired me to get going. WAY TO GO STEFANIE!!!

We leave for Dallas a week from Tuesday for my little sis's 50 birthday!!!! We don't have a lot of plans but it will be great to get away and spend some time with my sister. Mom is going with us so if anyone would like to house sit just let me know. Not sure what I am going to do with Gracie The Wonder Dog while we are gone.

Have a wonderful weekend. Get out there and enjoy Michigan while you can :D
