Lake cabin by proxy

The only thing better than owning a cabin on a northwoods lake is having A FRIEND who owns a cabin on a northwoods lake!!

One of our absolute dearest friends has bought a little slice of heaven on a lake and invited us up for Memorial Day!! That's not it pictured, but it's nearly as cute. We're going to help with some chores, like painting, in exchange for the fun. Hmmmmmm how much food should I bring? I tend to bring about 8 coolers along for vacations because you can't have too much bacon or half-n-half in my opinion. Can I have volume knobs installed on the children before then?

Have fun (I mean, in a coupla months). That looks pretty sweet. If you do go ahead and get the volume knobs installed, make sure they also have remote controls. VERY IMPORTANT.

(Also: you guys totally deserve a break from all the drama. I hope it's a good time away for everyone.)

I'm so excited for them for their new purchase! Have a great time up there!

Hooray! I'm so glad you're excited to come up!! I'm posting pictures of the actual cabin on my blog. We close on the 8th if all goes well with the appraisal. Just finished the inspection yesterday.

Sounds great! I hope we'll be at our cabin over Memorial Day too! It just might have running water by then!

Churlita said...

That sounds wonderful. You deserve some time away.

OMG so jealous. But you totally deserve it. Also, I hate to paint, so I'd be a terrible guest if it were me. Can't wait to hear about it afterward!

Leave the kids at home chained up with a bowl of meat and a bowl of water. It'll do 'em good.

Oh, I forgot to tell you there will likely be no tasks of consequence. We're going to hold off on painting I think. So, your new tasks are:

1. Lay about
2. Lay about while eating
3. Lay about after drinking
4. Float in boat
5. Learn to play 'Nuts' (card game)

Can you handle that?

Mnmom said...

I think we can handle that. It will be a sacrifice though!

kirby said...

That sounds like a great time.

What a super "get-away" place. And super friends. No volume knob ideas here...just work with old fashioned GAGS!!!

Liberality said...

and when you get done with all that stuff come back to blogland and do this meme I've tagged you with ;)

Lisa said...

I hope you have a wonderful time! It's great to get away!

Anita said...

That sounds like an awesome get a way, a friend with a cabin is a friend indeed!

Missy said...

What do you do with all that half and half?

That sounds wonderful. You deserve some time away.
