Oh, Life at the Cottage...

We had a wonderful time last week. I hope you all had a great week too!
To ease back into life as is, here are a few pictures from my week at the cottage.


The kids doing dishes while having fun--Major Accomplishment!!

Our Furs enjoying the water.

Sand Castle Building


And for those who were wondering--Spider (Spidy) Wieners. Yummy!

I look forward to catching up on everyone's blogs. It may take me the week. But I will catch up! Along with going through my 710 emails awaiting my attention.

Have a blessed week everyone!

Surrendering to Him,

Stephanie Faris said...

Spider weiners? How did you do that?

I need a vacation in the worst way!

Lily said...

We'll have to try those spider dogs. They do look yummy! Glad you had a great get-away.

There must be one good book with a prologue, but I haven't found it. Let me know if you come across one. :)
But I think the last thing you said is really the should find a way to slip it into the actual story.

I envy you being able to take your dogs on vacation!

Hi Eileen -

Oh, your vacation looks so relaxing! I've never heard of Spidey Wieners before. Do you simply cut and cook them or is there a secret ingredient?

Susan :)

T. Anne said...

LOL at the spidey wieners. I'm inspired! Sounds and looks like a great time!

Need More Words said...

Looks like you had a wonderful family time. I hope you can keep some of that wonder now that you are home.

Keli Gwyn said...

I'm glad you enjoyed your vacation. Thanks for posting a picture of the Spidey dogs. They look like fun. We'll have to try those next time we go camping.

Eileen Astels Watson said...

Hey all, great to be back with you and catching up!!

Georgiana--of course I'm the photographer in these. I'm not sure if my girls caught me in any pics or not. I'll have to check.

Stephanie--just slice each end of the dog twice, slip the middle through a skewer and watch the heat of the fire do it's magic of curling the ends. So easy, but so yummy too.

Next year I'm coming. I pack light, make funny comments and will be out on the water most of the time anyway...heck, I'll even sleep out on the water if need be. :D Looks like a restful time.
