we skipped town last week on wednesday and headed up to my parents’ house (my childhood home) in bass lake, for a long weekend to celebrate my paternal gram’s 90th birthday (it was a surprise).
it was wonderful. and relaxing. and refreshing. and fulfilling (literally – i never felt hunger. so.much.food.).
2,500 pieces of puzzles
mud baths for the kids
balance board competitions
dance competitions on the wii
fire in the wood-burning stove
searching for lady bug patches
snuggling my new nephew to sleep
eating yummy food, like my brother’s black bean salsa, mom’s caesar salad, oreo cookie pancakes, apple crisp pancakes, coffee cake, ribs, and s’mores bars.
lots of cousin time, for both the kids and adults
potato gun shooting
raccoon climbing into our kitchen and eating our food
staying up late
playing catch phrase
getting a sparkly pedi from my sister-in-law
just being with my sister (she lives in australia)
have a very happy week, friends!
ps – new items will be up in the shop later today… after grocery shopping and laundry!
