Maybe summer has finally come to the Northwoods. Since parking here at the lake more than 2 months ago, we have finally had a couple nice weather days, back to back. An average day has been cool, wet, or windy or a combination of them. There may have been 4 or 5 nice days scattered around, but not very many.
We had Stella, the Grand-dog with us for more than 2 weeks, while Brett, Jen, and the girls were on vacation. The granddaughters took Stella’s place over the Fourth of July weekend and have since gone home to their varied summer activities. David and his family were here as well over the Fourth, so that weekend was quite busy. Dave took lots of beautiful pictures. This is one of my favorites!
After the Fourth, Paula and Tomie came to Duluth for a quick visit to Grandma Joyce. Pam and Ron came up from the Twin Cities and we had a nice dinner with Grandma to celebrate an early 88th birthday for her. Brett’s girls were still here so it was a nice group and lots of fun.
Last Sunday was a nice day and we spent part of it on Steve and Deanna’s pontoon. Very quiet as most of the “weekenders” had left the lake. So nice that they invite us for these long rides!
The last week has been pretty quiet. The pickup has been repaired (mostly) from the storm damage. We haven’t yet received an estimate to repair the motorhome; maybe we’ll have it soon.
