Lazy Days of Summer

I'm starting to sound like a broken record and I've only been blogging a few weeks!  But....I have to say it again...the weather this week has been beautiful.  Only one day this week was a little rainy and otherwise every day has been perfect lay-on-the-beach, tube-on-the-lake, fish-in-the-morning, campfire-in-the-evening kind of days!  Really, summer vacation doesn't get any better than that!  The warm, sunny weather has meant that we haven't seen as many fish this week as in past weeks but last night ...

Summer Has Arrived

Shhhh...don't say it too loudly but it would seem that summer has finally come to Minnesota resort country.   The sun was shining yesterday and today looks to be just as beautiful.  It was so nice to see kids playing on the beach.  Those industrious kids even built us a hot tub!  Of course, it will be hard to heat in the winter but for now it's a fine addition. Last week's rain combined with Monday's 3 inches has boosted the lake level ... Read more
