Long weekend

There is something amazing about our cabin. 4 days out there and it feels like an entire summer.

I want my bous to have an epic childhood. I want them to be able to entertain themselves outside. That's what I had and it was amazing.

We went out Thursday night.  Grandpa was out there tree planting. We are putting in a shelter belt that contains, lilacs, scotch pine, hollyhocks and choke cherry trees.  It will kind of look like this when we are done...
It's going to take a few years until they mature of course, probably more, but it will be a big help in protecting our road in the winter.


Boys got to drive the go- carts, go fishing (Zach caught a monster cat-fish. Logan caught white fish and clams), plant trees,  go exploring....

Courtney and Dale... our neighbours came over Friday night... Courtney is just awesome. She is one of the most genuine and funniest people I know. Love hanging out with her.


Saturday was rough.  Let me say that the cure for a very bad vodka hangover is most certainly NOT shoveling cow manure and hay for mulch. Oh. My. Gawd. 

My Dad was nattering on about the science and nature of the shelter belt we were creating and it was all I could do to not throw up.  Self inflicted obviously.... so I realise there would be no sympathy.  Still.

By Sunday I was up and running again. We did more tree planting and mulching. Brad took the boys fishing again and then they found a great camp spot down by the river.  So next time they come out they are going to do an over night at the river... boys are jacked!!!

The ticks were out this weekend, but they weren't too bad.  Boys and Brad would pick a few off each day. I was fortunate in that I only had one all weekend.  But I was in the field as opposed to hiking through the bush which makes a difference.

This coming weekend it's back out to the country, but it's only going to be Jill and I.  It's a full on country girls weekend.  We are going to hang out, watch movies on the deck, relax and have a great time.  Can't wait!!!
