Monday's mean Michael and I get out TOGETHER for a few hours. Michael has been busy fixing up the row boat we brought from his childhood home. Today, we drove up into the mountains behind our house and found a happy place. We have no idea what the name of the lake is...but it was magical. We even got a work out in as we had to lift the boat into the truck, and then down when we arrived, and down a hill to the lake....we drove up 2 weeks ago and it was still frozen, so we thought there may be some ice to deal with.

It was perfect, except for the one fall. LOL Grandpa was happy with Arielle and Benny and we had a great picnic on the lake. I was skeptical when Michael told me not to bring a picnic blanket but he was a man with a plan.
It was a treat to be able to soak in the beautiful scenery and the peace and quiet. We were able to finish a conversation. ::snort:: We are brainstorming a way to make a dolly for dragging the boat along next time. LOL
We are able to go out together as Arielle and the boys come to hang out with Grandpa on Mondays. Arielle even re-made his bed, did several loads of laundry and watched a movie with the boys and Grandpa. Benny was quite taken with this very comfortable little boy bed....which is fine as Millie isn't taken with it at all. LOL
