A Weekend Escape (Cabin & Lake style)

V's family has a cabin, it was originally built by hand in the 1950's-1960's by his grandma and grandpa. Long story short, V's grandpa passed and willed into the remaining lineal descendants....all 21 of them! It works out that V's mom is one of 5 immediate descendants so the cabin it spilt up for a weekend for each of them on a rotating 5 week schedule. So every 5th week or so we have the the opprotunity to go up and enjoy the heck out of it, and we do as often as we can! Sometimes the mom-in-law and dad-in-law come (rarely do the bro-in-law or sis-in-law come which is ok with me).

So Friday night V. and I scurried around after work getting all the necessities ready and hit the open road. It's a little more than an hour to get there and if I remember correctly it's the last of three good size lakes we pass so it's a very enjoyable ride! This is the exact moment I feel that we have arrived, it's the first of the lakes and we still have a while to drive but that feeling is priceless!
V had gone up and fished last weekend (with permission from his aunt, whose weekend it was) while I enjoyed a Saturday with my bestie of girl chat and pedicures, the point being our new-to-us boat was already there along with the trailer so we just took the truck up. It was a special treat for me not to have to drive. With my earphones in I chilled to my ipod tunes while V. drove the miles away.
By early evening we had arrived (only after stopping several times in search of some "live bate" for V.). Our mutt, who has no tail (not due to us, she was that way when we got her) as you can felt rather abandoned when Dad went into the 3rd place for bate.
We finally arrived and after getting settled we enjoyed a BEAUTIFUL Sunset!

We so enjoy the cabin, especailly so this weekend! I feel so refreshed!!! Mom-in-law and Dad-in-Law came up on Saturday, V and his dad fished most of the day and Mom-in-law and I had some qulaity time to talk. She is a total blessing to me and has a way of supporting me/us that I so need.
Some more pretty moutains, yes with snow in June.
Until Next time!
Much Love,
The next day was perfect too! (can you see the snow on the moutains in the distance?)
