Today we finished our school shopping. We got shoes and a few more clothes. I'm not sure how I feel about Addy having to shop in the older girls section. I think she looks like a teenager in some of her clothes. Scary, at least she told me she doesn't want to be or look like a teenager. That gives me hope. Now if we could get rid of her teenage attitude. All we have left on our back to school to do list, is hair cuts. Only 7 days until school starts for Addy!
Growing up, my best friend was my cousin Lisa. I loved spending time with her and her parents. We always had lots of fun together. Lisa's dad, my uncle Jim loves to fish. It's a genetic thing with the Carter's. They have a beautiful cabin near Strawberry reservoir. I loved spending time at the cabin with Lisa. We would play and explore and just have fun being kids. I remember one year we visited the property before the cabin was built and spread wild flower seeds. They never grew, but it's a great memory. Every year we were invited to the cabin for a party. I hadn't been to the cabin in about 7 years. Last Saturday, we went to the cabin for a party. It was lots of fun. It's such a gorgeous drive and it brought back lots of memories. It was fun to watch my kids play with my cousins kids. Maren loved just walking around the porch and pointing at everything. Addy and Sydnee went exploring. I had lots of fun catching up with my cousins and aunts and uncles. My aunt Rosemarie is the deer whisperer. She got a deer to come right up to the porch and the kids were able to feed it. It was such a fun and relaxing day. I am so grateful for my wonderful extended family. Thank you Carter's for sharing your cabin with us, we love you!
