Wonderful Weekend

This weekend we were up at our place at Lake Erie. Our darling daughters, Laura and Amy and 6 of the grandkids came up to help us paint. It didn't look like a lot, until they actually started on Saturday morning. Hubby and I had power washed the porch on Friday, so it was all ready.

It took both of them several hours.....then on Sunday they painted the red trim on the actual trailer. (no picture of that). Bless their hearts it really was a help.
The sky was so blue all weekend, just gorgeous.

Sunday afternoon they got a much needed break around the pool down by the marina.

Oliver wasn't too happy with the could have been because it was verrrry cold!

Graham was really super lovey with Grandma! He cooked Friday's hot dogs and Sunday's hamburgers for all of us. Mia cooked Saturday's BBQ chicken.....all on the grill. Love you guys!

Just an update on the swan.....she is still nesting as of noon today!

Missed my sewing machine this weekend. Looking forward to some serious sewing this coming week!

Well, hello Sandy! Gald you checked out my blog and hope you visit often.
I love your pics of the lake house, what a great place to relax with the family. I can't wait to see the baby pics of the swan. I have to say, that is the first swan's nest I have ever seen. Amazing.
Thanks for the well wishes on the surgery, now, I am ready to get back and get some quilting done. I am so like you, I miss my sewing machine so much.
Again, nice to meet you and looking forward to getting to know you and checking out your quilts. Sandy's Sew Clever
