From the rising of the sun to its going down
the Lord's name is to be praised!

White Pine Lodge
Well, we're back from our backwoods cabin experience. It was a blast but a lot of work considering it was a holiday. This here blog post will give you a glimpse of our time away which included fishing, boating, bear hunting, a lure in the thumb(NOT DAN!), a baby (Trenton) with an earache, hiking, a trip to WalMart (too keep the women sane) , enjoyable company, and a wonderful look at the beauty God created. That there first picture is of the whole lodge with a view of the drink which no one fell into amazingly! As you can tell I learned a few new phrases while we were up there.

The wagon is loaded up with all our stuff and ready to be hauled up to our cabin. The lodge is situated on a rocky incline.
Our throne-upon which Brookie sang "I'm the king of the castle, you're the dirty rascal!" every time she used it. That bucket behind it is full of peat moss which you scoop onto #2 to reduce odors. How nice.

Little Friends

This is how Mia fell asleep her first night-backwards in bed with no blankets and using frog for a pillow.

Wet Fishermen

The kids are looking at maps Veronica made trying to find their way to the North Pole.

Lounging around-with a Gideon Bible no less!
YES, that is two fish on one line!-this happened just when Brian was about to give up and try a different spot. And as good as he is, he's the one who ended up in Emerg with a lure up his thumb!
MMMmmmm...the fish fry.
Some colors we saw on our way home.

Seedtime and harvest,
Cold and heat,
Winter and summer,
And day and night
Shall not cease." Gen 8:22

In Case You're Wondering...
We still exist here. Our camera is missing thus the lack of updates.
Ksena is 2 today! ...and already the onslaught of 'Are you going to toilette train soon?' has begun. Are you crazy! Three, three and under is nuts enough. I'm not throwing toilette training into the mix. Actually, I have been contemplating it but I just don't have the courage to start with memories of how long and hard it was with Mia. Ksena has signs of being ready so if anyone would like to train her for me I'll thank you profusely.
We have new neighbors in our ghetto (as Rob calls it) two doors down. They have some extremely yappy dogs. We would like to go say 'hello' to them and when we do I will have to exercise some serious self-control in order to restrain myself from offering to 'take care' of their dogs.
I've borrowed Taunya's camera for Ksena's birthday so we should have some new pictures to post shortly.
