Thank Goodness for Blog Fodder

Hi there and happy August!  I’m outside in the office as I work on this entry.  It is a mild day temp-wise, and we’ve had a bit of rain off and on since last night.  We continue to do rain dances; the lake is as low as we care to see it.  We’re supposed to get more rain throughout today and are crossing our fingers.

Life is returning to normal!  We had a nice crew in last week–nearly all used guests–and we saw terrific improvement in both fishing and weather.  Fred’s annual visit included most of the usual suspects.  This year three of his kids and six of his grandkids visited along with a couple of outlaws.  The guys were excited to collect fish for a decent fish fry:

They were able to collect perfect eaters:)  Bruce released a beautiful 20″er:

and added a nice 18″ bass to the Big Fish page!  Thanks, Bruce:)

Everyone switches off kids throughout the week–sort of a yours, mine, ours arrangement.  Steve had one of his and a couple of spares one day:

His son Rylan caught his first-ever walleye!  Check out his face!

At some point Dave and Karen were able to get away with NONE of their three kiddos!

Five of Fred’s six grandkids at Camp last week were boys.  All but Liam had their version of shore lunch on the dock:

What’s a girl to do?  Addison waited until she could read quietly:)

Not that she doesn’t get out and fish

or make a great friend and create a time capsule (that has been placed somewhere in Camp)

Uncle Bruce and Aunt Jean have no kiddos.  Why…because Jean teaches kindergarten;)  They love their nieces and nephews and this nice “Flat Stanley” type of classroom mascot:

Jean always gets some beautiful scenery shots.  Here’s a plane coming in,

a Where’s Waldo (I count three frogs…do you?),

and some simply lovely shots of our world

I really liked this one…beautiful!

We had some awesome sunsets as well last week.  Jean caught this one!

Projects continue around Camp.  Mark made a nice new lakeside door for the Bear’s Den, and Darlene continues putting a fresh coat on anything she can!  I was kitcheny this week.  Potluck’s entree was meatsloaf

I made a blueberry zucchini layer cake with lemon zest buttercream for dessert

Yesterday I made a crustless blueberry/raspberry pie for dessert with our friends Ryan and Bridget:)  I’d be lying if I said it wasn’t good!

I have been promised blog fodder from two other parties!!!!  That should get me back on track with entries.  Have a FABULOUS week!
