Finally it was here, time to take off and go to the "little house" up north. Abbey's folks consented to her going with us (hooray) and we went to pick her up. When we got there, Lucy was all dressed in her Detroit Lion's shirt and blue bow from the kid's football game they went to that day! It was so great to be up north again, it's always like "coming home" as soon as we walk in the door. Abbey was so excited to be there, she had to run right over to our "measuring board" to see how much she had grown.
Sunday morning we went into town (Tawas) and walked through the craft show (didn't find a thing) and then out to the pier. Of course we had to stop and throw a penny in the fountain.

Papa and Abbey always have so much darn fun!

The fog had rolled in over Lake Huron and we were so disappointed. One of the "tall ships" was in the harbor and we could hardly see it. It was still beautiful!

Tall ship in the fog!
When we went back to the cottage, we took the paddle boat out into the lake and went swimming. Abbey loved to do the "dead man's float" after the boats zipped by making waves.
Her life jacket was a little too big, but she didn't mind!
Last night Papa and Abbey went for a ride to look for deer and came across these Emu's, she loved that! (They also saw 11 deer.)
When we got home this afternoon, we met Mom at the nursing home and took Dad out to dinner. This is the first time he has been out since May, so it was a great outing. He loved going for a ride and the coconut cream pie!
I hope you all had a wonderful holiday weekend!
Until next time...


  1. Hi Dawn! sounds like you had a most glorious weekend!....and how wonderful that your Dad was able to go out to dinner, good for him!


  2. What a nice weekend Dawn - seeing the youngest and oldest alike! We did the same thing!

  3. Dawn,
    It sounds like you had a wonderful weekend at the little house. Glad Abbey got to go with you. Love the pics, even the one with the fog.

  4. Hi Dawn,
    Looks like you had a wonderful weekend, that Lucy is sure a sweetie!

  5. Dawn,
    It sounds like you had all had a great weekend at your little house. I really liked the fog pictures of Lake Huron...and I can't wait to see it for myself hopefully in October.

  6. Dawn what a great weekend it looks like you had! We also went into Tawas, but it was Saturday night instead, and then off to Oscoda for putt putt golf. Found nothing at the craft show either. I'm too picky! The weather was unbelieveable! I read your posts below also.... what a sweet story about Abbey and her grandpa. How special. I will be talking with you soon! Carol

  7. Lake Huron is beautiful, and how neat that you got to see a tall ship! It looks like you and your family had a wonderful holiday weekend.
