Boyd and I are off to Green Lake, WI for 3 weeks.
Boyd's family used to live on Green Lake year round.
Now his parents rent a home there each summer so that we can all spend
some time together... his parents, Boyd and I, his brother Dana,
his sister Mary (& John) and their 2 kids Annie and Henry.
This is a picture of last summer's house.
This year's house is supposed to be "lovely" and huge.
OK... twist my arm... I'll go!
Green Lake is great for swimming, sunning, and lots of reading.

Great memories of this float!
Lot's of time is spent playing in the water.

Steps from the water to the house.
But the climb is worth it.

The town of Green Lake has wonderful shops and restaurants.
It's quaint and cute.
There's a big art fair while we're there.
This is the ice-cream shop that my diet won't allow this year...
well maybe once... a week?
And I've packed a bag of embroidery projects, a stack of books,
scrapbooking album and supplies and my NEW little
portable HP photo printer.
And my girls??
Never a wasted moment!

Wendy, Darin, and Kristin are headed to Breckenridge, Colorado
mid-August to spend some time in the mountains where
Wendy met Darin... and Kristin used to work.
They never lack for something to do or a place to go.

Wendy and Darin are on their honeymoon for a week.

They went to the Florida Keys to an island to do some scuba diving.
This is Wendy snorkeling... I don't have a diving pic yet.

So......... "GOOD-BYE!" until the end of August!
See you then...
Love, Joni

Well, this is wonderful and crappy all at the same time. It feels like we JUST got you back. . .and now you're leaving again. (LOL)

Have a wonderful, restful time. You deserve every precious moment spent up there.

Can't wait to see what you discover while you're away!

Isabelle said...

Hope you have/had a lovely time. I'm not the slightest bit jealous, though would like to point out that I'm back to work in a week. Alas.

Helen said...

I hope they didn't have to twist your arm too hard. Looks divine! Have a super time.

Joni this looks so familiar. We have gone to several conferences at Green Lake WI. Could this be the same place. We stayed in Roger Williams Hotel, and the grounds look like your photos.

Know you will have a marvelous time. Loved all the pictures.
