Rick and I are just home from a lovely extended weekend at the cabin.
It was a very special weekend, not only because it was Father's Day,
but because Rick got to spend it with his dad, who is 83.
Rick and his Dad out for a boat ride
It was so sweet to watch them go off together.
We did a lot of just sitting and talking, and spent about 80% of the time outside.
Rick's mom and dad are "Inside" people but they were troopers and seemed to enjoy this quiet, peaceful setting. No TV, no radio, just God's beautiful back drop...
and boy did He show us some beauty!
We all sat on the dock Saturday night until 10pm watching the sky, it was like an interactive painting, the clouds changing shapes and colors more vivid then I've ever seen.
Rick and I took the boat out one afternoon and when we came back
we found his mom and dad sitting on the swing waiting for us.
Rick's mom kept saying, "I cant believe how beautiful it is here, and how quiet it is".
She loved the sound of the tall pine trees as they waved in the wind.
You have to understand, Rick's mom lives with Chronic pain among other issues and really
doesn't leave the house much anymore, so this is a BIG deal!
I decided to set a puzzle out.
They loved working on it late at night and early in the morning.
It's a very challenging puzzle, I'm hoping we can finish it next week
when we are back up with our kids :)
Our last night we got to witness the beautiful full moon on the 1st day of summer,
It's been 75 years since this has happened....
It was breathtaking over the lake.
