A Perfect 10-10-10....

Right after church, we loaded the car and headed out to Rice Lake for the day. Yes, we did! I know, I know, how can this be for ND in October???!!! We even had major blizzard around this day just a few years ago.

Kevin said if this is global warming, then we'll take it! :) We had the best day ever....73 degrees, sunshine and no wind!

Our cabin (or cavin as Grace calls it) is nothing more than a trailer home--though a '71 "Champion"!

Our perfect day held all the typical summertime lake activities.

We bonded....

We boated.....

We tubed....

We fished....

We had a campfire....

And, s'mores too.....

From start to finish....

It was a glorious way to spend the perfect day!


  1. Makes me think about my childhood days spent at our lake cabin. Fun times!

  2. Looks amazing! The weather, the company, the activites... what a great day!

  3. Bella makes that smore look YUMMY!!!! What a fun day!

  4. Oh, WOW! What a fantastic day!!! Can I go next time...??

  5. Hey, Missy! Take that Allegiant air flight up here....would love to have you visit our lake! :)

  6. Those are amazing pictures! I love the pretty trees in the background! Looks like a perfect day...... it must have been chilly at night... even Grandma had a jacket on. :-)
