Family Work Weekend June 2008

It was another productive family work weekend of mowing, planting flowers, washing windows, cleaning, and watching baby (which is mostly what Robyn did). Kent and Shane shingled and sided the new Chapel cabin. Adam worked on the rock fireplace. It's beautiful. If anyone has pictures to share of these projects, please do so!

Kent, Stacy, Shane, Kayla, and Adam had a successful fishing trip to Yellow Girl. We enjoyed a meal of fish Saturday night along with a campfire and music. Tom, Joy, Paul, Linda, and friends joined us. Don, Rene', and Robyn had fun on the island fishing for Bass with Alex, EmaRae, and baby Kaia. Kaia loves the island and couldn't get enough of the outdoors this weekend.

Ethel Island Memorial Weekend

Okay, this is the very first Ethel Island Blog post, so bare with me! :) Memorial weekend was filled with lots of fun on Lake of the Woods (L.O.W. for those of you unfamiliar with the acronym). The water was cold, but we managed to still get in for a dip. Kent, Adam, Robyn, and Kelly went fishing at Yellow Girl. Fishing was slow, but we still managed to get our limit with Adam catching most of our meal as well as a nice 5 lb (?) Walleye. It was Kelly's first time fishing up at L.O.W. Dad and Rene' joined us on their jet skis for a bit.

Highlights of the weekend included Alex and EmaRae's potty adventures: Alex, of course, peeing on the four-wheeler tire and EmaRae learning to squat and pee, "This is sooo cool that I learned how to squat Mama."

We enjoyed campfires, a fish fry, picking rocks on the swim beach, and cutting down trees to help get the Island ready for the summer.
