A mix of photography, recipes, personal thoughts, faith, and lots of family stuff, but not necessarily in that order.

Home again...we had an amazing week

 We were able to enjoy our kids and grands at the Cabin this week.
 We had a great time, but it always goes too fast. 

Thought I would just share a few photo's to touch on some of our highlights.
 Love my family
 (just missing our son-in-love Chris) 

Hanging out on the beach!
It was a little cool this weekend, but it didn't stop us from getting out for 
awhile to enjoy the sunshine. 

Carson loves Grandpa's "blue boat"

It was fun watching the cousins play and be silly together. 

Scarlett's first time on Pine Haven 
(our favorite church camp, just down the shore from our cabin)

My boys 
 We celebrated the October birthdays! 
Brice, Jennifer and Rick

 My daughter and her dad...just talkin'
(Carson snuggling on mama's lap)

 The road to our cabin
The colors are beautiful!

 Brice caught a big sunny off the end of the dock, 
Scarlett's amazed at her daddy's skills!

Jenny trying her luck at fishing  :)


Today our friend John helped pull the boat out of the lake,
then these two spent some time this morning taking the dock out of the water. 
(in their leaky hip-waders)
Good Job guys.... a job well done. 

Rick and I will return one more time this fall to close the cabin down. 
We feel like we have gotten plenty of time at our new cabin even though
 we've only owned it for about 3 weeks. 
Thanks for letting me share our joy over these last 3 weeks....we are blessed!


  1. It looks like everyone had a great time. What a pretty place.

    1. Thanks mom, yep, we had a great time!

  2. No wonder you've been giddy about your cabin. What a great place to be with family. Look at the memories you are building and so many more to come. Thank you for sharing this blessing in your life. Make that blessings, plural.

    1. Yes, if been a bit giddy! It's kind of been all consuming the last few weeks! It's been a good thing! Up one more time this coming weekend to close it down for the season!

  3. What a wonderful place to retreat for your family Jackie! I love all the fall colors. Looks like you guys had a great time. So many special memories your family is making.

  4. Yes Rachel, and it's only the beginning 😀
