I'm getting excited!!!

Oh my dear lord almighty... I need a vacation! We leave for Lakewood this Saturday morning!!! I cannot wait! A whole week to be with my family!!! We dropped the Quads off last Saturday and spent the night. Sarah and Marc were up there, and it was fun just to relax. (it was like getting a small taste of what's to come) We got to the cottage around noon, changed into our suits and spent the day in the lake. Sarah and I laid out on the boat, while the guys stood in the water and drank beer out of the 'big bobber' cooler. Sarah and Marc's dogs (Cooper and Molly) swam along side us and got us full of dirt!!! Later in the after noon, Sarah and I took the four wheeler into town and did some wine tasting at the Woodland Trail Winery. We made dinner, took a walk to the neighbors (there are some people up Archibald Lake Road that are actually our real neighbors at home on Denhardt Ave.) so we went and visited with them, went back to the cottage, the guys lit off some fireworks, and then we played Apples to Apples.
We got up on Sunday, lounged a bit and then Kurt and I took a little ride on the Quads. We ran up to Townsend and back. Then stopped at the Northern Perk for some coffee. Rode a little while and then went back. BUT...on our little adventure we saw wild life. Not just your average chippies either. We saw a HORSE!!! It was on the side of the ATV trail. It had on a bridal and a lead, so it couldn't have been wild, but there it stood. It was stuck in some branches but Kurt wouldn't allow me to go near it. (what a meanie) I got off my Quad and started walking towards it and he stopped me. Poor horse. Hopefully it's owners got to it quickly. Anyway, a ways later, we saw a mumma doe and her twin fawns crossing the street and going into the thick brush.
Sunday afternoon we went tubing. Mark drove the boat and pulled us around Chain Lake. I went around a few times before I took a spill. Kurt says I got some good air! I also got soar muscles and nylon burn to boot! Kurt flew off too and took a nice tumble! Good times!!!
Traffic was HOOOOOOORABLE on the way home. It does not normally take three hours to get home. (usually it's 1 hour and 45 minutes) NUTS I tell you!!! We went 15 mph for a VERY long time.
I will hopefully get lots of good pictures this next week and will give you the run down of our much needed vacation! Have a great week!

I hope you have a great vacation this coming week! Sounds like you get lots of action up there at the cabin :) I just have one question... what are the QUADS, that you refer to? I'm virgin in that ATV lingo ;)

Thanks my little ATV virgin! The "Quads" are four wheelers. Kurts parents have two of them that we can borrow whenever we like. It's almost as good as owning them. They are fun to ride, it's something that we can enjoy together. (seeing that i HATE snowmobiles)
I'll update my page w/ fun pictures from vacation soon!!! I cannot wait to see if Boozer will like swimming. She sure likes wearing her life jacket.
Talk to you guys soon!!!
