Mini Vacation

Earlier this summer we decided to take the boys and go with some friends and their kids to take a long-weekend mini vacation. We didn't want to go too far away, less time on the road, more time for relaxing. We found the perfect place about an hour and a half from home, just far enough away to feel like an escape. We all left from home with no plans to do anything, other than to take a break from the daily grind and enjoy time with friends and our families. The kids enjoyed playing outside together and the adults enjoyed relaxing with cool beverages, I don't know that we could have picked a better weekend either, the weather ended up being just perfect for sitting outside.

Overall, it was a GREAT time and we are all looking forward to doing it again next year. I think it will be a great memory for all of our kids to have of going to the cabins every year. And I know that I will look forward to going every year to have a nice relaxing weekend. We all highly recommend these cabins, they were great and the restaurant was really good too! If you find you find yourself in the area you should stop and check them out for yourself.

Hi I'm New Here...

I have often thought about starting a blog, but what would I write about? Would someone even care or want to read what I have written? I'm still not sure that I have the answers to those questions, but I thought I would give it a try. I am hoping that if I put this this out here, and put out what I hope to do with this blog that I will be accountable to my ideas.

So what do I want out of this?
I am hoping to eventually get more painting done and show off my work here, I would like to get some of the cool photos I have taken put up here too (Ultimate goal: start selling my painting and photographs!!). This will probably turn into a little bit (or a lot) of an ongoing journal of my family, our home, our projects and the things we like to do.

Join me for the ride if you like, we'll take it one mile at a time. If you like something, tell me and then tell your friends, if you don't like something, tell me, and I'll get back to you. Thanks for stopping by try not to be a stranger, and I'll do the same.
