What I did on my summer vacation


 Every year my husband goes fishing up in northern Minnesota, right across the border from Canada.  It's the yearly fishing trip trip for all the guys in the 5W fishing club and they've been together for the past 25 years.  My brother, his brothers and our son go also.

For me, it's called summer vacation.  A week free from dishes, routine meals, etc.  My daughter and I use this time to catch up by shopping, going out to eat and just lazing around.  Time to view the beautiful night sky.


Time to watch the mushrooms dance.  It looks like they're trying to make their way into the front door.


Leo is so happy to be back home.  Here he's taking a sun bath in his favorite spot.  There's no place like home.  I know my husband will tell me that when he gets back from his fishing trip.  That's what he tells me every year.  And I'll be happy to hear about all his fishing tales.

There's no place like home...and it's wonderful to spend some time alone in it, too! :)

Those mushrooms are amazing!

I love those times when the routine is gone and if you're alone, you can eat a bowl of cereal for dinner if you choose! ha.

Hi Betsy, It was lots of fun getting out of the routine, I must say!

Hi Pam, Sometimes we need a little vacation away from each other:)

Hi Celeste, Leo seems very content after his big adventure!
