Early in the morning at the cabin, only the sound of the water lapping against the dock. Paul is out fishing, but no one else is up yet.

It's nice for me to see Paul enjoying himself so much. We have his brother's boat for the week, which belonged to their dad, and it's special for Paul to use it. When we got here yesterday, with the two little girls, after unloading and putting away the cold stuff, we went for a ride down the lake. He and Charlotte Claire fished while Cam and I stayed out of their way and hoped they would catch something. They didn't. But they have caught a few little sunnies from the dock.

Today, lots of kids will be coming up, and it won't be so quiet anymore, but it will be a joyful noise, at least to this mama's ears. My grown-up kids have grown up into such nice adults, they're my friends, ha. I am a very lucky girl.

You look so happy and rested Della! I am smiling just looking at that photo. Enjoy every minute of your vacation. I live in a log cabin in the woods and know the peace and serenity that it provides.

It sounds like you have enjoyed your time at the cabin. We just got back from a camping trip and it was a nice way to relax and enjoy some time away from the rat race at home.
