It's been 32 years since John and I started this thing called marriage. We were both young, like way too young, I'm not sure what we were thinking, but it worked. We spent a long weekend up north with a drive to the Northwoods on Friday to pick up some paint. It really wasn't a trip to just pick up paint but just a destination to spend the day together doing something fun on a snowy November day.
While driving back I asked him to drive down this one road I thought looked pretty cool so I could take some pictures.
After a few miles we were forced to make a decision to go either direction a long ways out of our way. John picked one and we drove..... until I started to recognize things. He went the way that he knew drove by my dad's. It was nice to visit with dad and Joanne on our adventure.
They had a few other visitors while we were there.
The rest of the weekend Lynn and family came up for the weekend. The kids were excited to spend time at the cottage but it's a bit different when we spend more time indoor than outdoor.
We drew a city on long paper to entertain them for a few hours.
Baby sister Melanie enjoyed her time being spoiled by everyone.
A little Frozen video with singing and dancing reeeeeaaaallly close to the TV.
Maggie watching us from the snowy outdoors.
It was time for a walk
A couple quick pictures of Melanie with Grandpa and Grandma since she's growing like a weed.

It was a great weekend for making memories with the kids. Lots of relaxing, adventures in the woods, yummy food and a GREAT dice game even if we had to threaten the guys to play. They liked it and just wouldn't admit it.
