It's been brutal here all week but The Mister and I got a nice break.
Son and DIL had rented a lake house up in the mountains for a week and gave us an invite for a couple of days.
That's Deep Creek Lake. I haven't been up there in ages. The last time I was up there I was with my parents and I was hauling around a carload of kids.
The weather was beautiful. Cool and dry. It was even a bit chilly with a wonderful breeze. Perfect for sitting outside and knitting. I was outside for two days without a bug bite. In August. Can you believe it?
Pup also got to be outside for a change. I think she even got a bit sunburned. We haven't been outside for any length of time back home. It's just been too miserable.
The Grands had a great time in the lake. They were jumping off the dock and collecting piles of rocks.
I had a standing joke about seeing bears. Everywhere you go there are bear warnings.
This is the only one I saw. Poor guy. It made me sad to see him all stuffed like that at the Nature Center but the Grands loved him.
We went to the Deep Creek State Park for a hike. Little Grand led the way with the map he picked up at the nature center. It was too cute.
Back at the cabin all they wanted to do is beat me in chess. Playing chess with a 4 year old is an experience. Especially since he knew the rules better than I did.
We took the long trip back home yesterday and as soon as we got over the first mountain range we went from 76 degrees all the way back up to 94. Ugh. They are promising us a nice weekend and they better deliver. I need to open the windows. My stuffy house was no fun to come back to.
