We had a fantastic weekend with college friends in the Quad Cities and took part in the River Action Floatzilla down the Mississippi River. There were a lot of great shots I missed because I was too afraid to bring my camera in the canoe. Anyway, I was busy paddling, looking at pelicans, and frolicking around in the waves. And, while I didn’t get any pics, I did get this souvenir and plenty of memories.

We got home yesterday after a blissful 4-day weekend at the cabin. Daily life can get so busy – it was heaven having our little family all to ourselves. Lots of photo opportunities at the lake. Mostly the kids – adorable in their sunglasses and lifejackets – swimming, jumping off the dock, scooping tadpoles from the pond, splashing, smiling, and sleeping in a precious heap like a couple of puppies. I’ve taken at least a thousand photos around the cabin over the years. But, the great thing is: there is always something more to see, to learn, to experience. Here are the photos that I decided to Pin for 30 Days of Creativity.
