This past weekend we had the pleasure of heading up to our family cottage in the French River to spend some Holiday time with my family. I love a cottage Christmas! Continue reading “Cottage Christmas”
Our vacation week was a success! We had a car for the week (thanks in-laws!) so we were able to get out of the city as well as getting some running around done.
Here’s a recap:
Visited family friends cottage in the Muskoka’s. Odin was afraid of the boat motor.
We went for great hikes and Odin swam in the lake.
We headed up to my family cottage waaaay up north on the French river.
We read books,drank lattes lakeside (YES, cityslicker Kristen did bring her espresso machine to the cottage) had camp fires, ate and drank too much!
Oh and we did some hiking too.
Odin celebrated his first birthday at the cottage and got a present of a raw egg followed by a campfire and marshmallows.
We got a lot accomplished around the house including a trip to Home Depot for some big & heavies (wood & cement).
We loaded up on dog food for Odin and took back our beer empties to the beer store (this is one thing that sucks doing when you don’t have a car, you seriously look like a hobo when you’re wobbling down the street overloaded with empty cans and bottles, so we usually wait until we can beg borrow or steal a car.)
We headed to the drive-in.
And went to the beaches for a dog play/swim with El Granto’s oldest friend and his three awesome dogs. We spent time catching up with a good friend in from the UK, and accomplished a few to do’s off the list. All in all it was a great success and I’m terribly sad to go back to work today. Summertime has me wishing I didn’t have to work! It was amazing spending all that time with the hubby and puppy.
