Check out what this girl is doing - sitting up so good and enjoying "the beach" in our backyard.
We're renting a "lake house" for the week - okay, so it's a cottage, but it is on a lake. Lake house just sounds so much nicer. Sometimes it seems like renting a cottage is just camping, upgraded, at least while packing. But, the preparation is so worth it. It is beautiful here and God has spoiled us here with unbeatable weather on our first full day. The place we are staying is beautiful as well, and a bonus - it has wireless internet (I think that is how Jason sold me on this place) and a fantastic kitchen.
We spent our first day enjoying the lake. The boys loved tooling around in the paddle boat, playing in the sand and just being boys.
We also explored the nearby town, known for the fictional Hodag. I'm wondering who is going to have nightmares tonight?
The boys are out on the pier fishing, so Liddybug and I must sign off to go see if they've caught "the big one" yet.

So, how did the birthday girl spend her big day? She played keep-away, dug a hole, and destroyed two landscape lights. Happily, she did not eat any drywall, steal our flip-flops, eat any napkins, steal Jack's socks, eat a stamper turning her nose, gums and paw pink, eat any used Kleenexes, eat any Lincoln Logs or a sticky hand ... nope not today ...
Happy 1st Birthday to our crazy Maizey (aka, our Marley)!
