I’m back!

Whoa, dudes.  I didn’t mean to be gone that long!  I swear!

Last Tuesday, I begrudgingly returned to work from vacation.  It was hard.  I had a phenomenal week off, and I didn’t want it to end.  All week long, I kept reminding myself that I’m damned lucky to work somewhere that I love for people that are good friends, because otherwise, I think I would’ve cried.

So, I spent much of the week playing catch-up, and trying not to look at my pictures from what I consider our “little piece of heaven” – because when I looked at them, I just longed to be back there again.  It was too hard… too painful.

See what I mean…?

Lovin’ the beach!

Danica was unhappy with the pictures I got of her from last year at the camp – I told her it wasn’t my fault since she was always turning her head and refusing to smile.  Needless to say, she was much more compliant when it came to posing this year! ;)

The 1st one to swim out to the floating raft (after Mom challenged Kara and I to see who could do it first.  I rarely back down from a challenge!)

One of my favourite camp treats…corn on the cob! yum!!

We had a photo shoot one night on the end of the dock.  I got about 30 pictures of my mom, sister, and I – and Kara hated all of the ones that I liked, and forbid me for posting them.  So for that, she gets the goofiest one of all!

Nothing like a sunset at the camp…

I don’t ever want to leave this place…

It was the perfect week. 

I swear, if I could take my own bed with me, and find another room for my snoring mother to sleep in, I’d stay there forever.

So, last week kind of sucked, but this past weekend was a wonderful one and made up for the crazy-busy-stressful 4-day week that I was more than happy to see the end of.  The weekend made up for it, full of fabulous times with family and friends – and now I’m looking forward to settling back into a routine again.

Hopefully the blog neglect is over for a while! ;)

What an awesome place for a vacation. Nothing beats a beach retreat.

Looks like everyone had fun :) I wish we had a cottage...or someone in the family had one! I would love to be gone to a cottage for a week or 2
