Weekend Get-Away

Saturday morning, Monte and I packed up the kids, (as well as their bags, blankets, pillows and stuffed animals!), fishing poles and tackle boxes, snacks and what seemed like everything short of the kitchen sink .. and headed to Perham! We spent the weekend with my mom and step-Bob, and what a weekend it was!

Iain and Ellis went fishing with Monte and Bob:

And later, Ellis and I enjoyed swinging on the rope swing above the lake.

We later noticed that his fly was open - thus the zipping and my laughter!

On top of that, Claire and Colin helped my mom make cookies and then the four of us went to town for shopping and ice cream! Beyond that, we enjoyed awesome meals, going to church in the morning, LOTS of time on the lake and great company. All in all, it was a great overnight in Perham!


  1. How did you manage to swing without getting wet? Everytime I try it with the kids I turn up soaked. It looks like you all had a really good time.

  2. It's almost time for your monthly update! :) Just kidding!
