These photos were actually taken this year, but show the damage of last years fire. The sunflower is growing down the road from the cabin we stay in. It is located on a lot with no house... it was burned down last year. So many cabins are gone this year, it was such a sad sight.
The smoke slowly going up, up, up. We watched it for a long time in awe!
This year however, the weather was just lovely. We spent lots of time on the water, and taking walks around the nearby lake. It was just splendid!
The paddle boats were a crack up. We had so much fun on them. The poor person in the middle looked pretty ridiculous attempting to paddle, which is why we are crackin' up in the majority of the photos.
This is Sarah and I mingling with the locals. :)
One of the reasons we go up to the cabin is to work on our crafts. I worked on a quilt I am making for Weston B., my mom sewed an apron, Sarah and Heidi made some bows for the girl's hair, and Hayley scrap booked.
Heidi and Sarah had to leave Saturday afternoon due to church callings and young children at home. So, my mom, Hayley and myself headed up to Arrowhead village Saturday evening and enjoyed the scenery. It was very chilly, but the weather was a nice change. We shopped, ate and enjoyed October fest, which was going on in the village at this time!!!
Forgive the lack of make-up... it was a girls weekend you know.
Also, I have to comment that my cool sweater was only being worn because it was in the bag of fabric for my quilt and I didn't use it. Heidi forgot her sweater so she was using mine. Thankfully Wes had an old golf sweater in the fabric bag that I could use.
