Our wonderful weekend

We had such a great weekend, and it is sad to see Sunday evening happen so soon! We had beautiful weather for the whole thing, and although 40 degrees doesn't sound like much, it is a lot here! I hiked up our backyard mountain (actually pretty steep!) State park both Saturday and Sunday, and was SO glad I did! The views were spectacular and the air so refreshing... Saturday was a spur of the moment trip to a local place called Norm's News... where we had some great hamburgers and shakes. It is a candy store also, and we told the kids they could have a piece, and out of all the varieties, they chose Tootsie Pops! Funny... then we also went to the Home Depot and got some planting materials and did some early planting of our garden this year and the Black Eyed Susans that we are putting in our backyard.

Sunday morning we packed up the kids and headed out to Whitefish Lake which is completely frozen over. We brought the sled and and hauled the kids around and went and said hi to some ice fishing folks who had just caught a nice lake trout that was still flopping around! The kids loved it!
