We rode horses.
We canoed and swam in the lake. The water was super cold. It is fed by a spring that comes from a glacier. But the cold didn't stop us. Dave is in the water and Laurie, Mason and Jamie are in the canoe.
We fished. Here is Mason holding one of the smaller trouts he caught with his uncle.
We enjoyed the local wildlife. This is a moth!
We had lots of fun time with family. From left to right is my sister Michelle, niece Melanie, daughter Shelbie (showing her newly finished green knitted sweater) and Ellie holding one of the baskets I made and brought up to give as gifts. Michelle is holding one too.
Right before we left I picked up my Merry go Round quilt from the quilter to take along and bind. It was fun to stitch the binding and work on my Parcheesi blocks while we sat in the shade. Here is the finished quilt with the sun setting in the background.
When we got home Laura brought over welcome home cupcakes. They are delicious piña colada cupcakes and reminded me of the relaxing time we had on the vacation. By the way, check out the new layout on Laura's blog and my favorite cookie recipe that she makes. Also, Laura took pictures and commentary of our last quilt group meeting that I missed while I was gone. Laura gave a presentation at our last meeting on "Beyond Quilts". Sorry I missed that. But she did a good job of keeping me up on show-n-tell. Thanks Laura! You did a great job.
More on our vacation later. We did some fun crafts, too, and I'll show pics of what we made. A great time was had by all. Thanks Michelle and Brent. We couldn't have had more fun.
I've got an awful lot of catching up to do. It looks like my google reader is full of fun things from my favorite blogs and I've got e-mails to read and respond to. So more later.
