Summer Vacation

We took a week off during July and packed our bags, loaded up the SUV, hitched up the boat, grabbed the kids and the dog and departed for a week at a cabin in northern Wisconsin.  We all were ready for some time away from our hectic daily schedule and were craving some rest and relaxation.  We arrived very late on a Saturday evening (thanks to a championship Little League baseball game that delayed our departure).  We unpacked our bags and dropped into bed.  The next day we slept in, checked out the lake, headed into town for groceries and enjoyed the evening making s’mores.  Let the relaxation begin!
