EVEN NOW; WITH A THOUSAND LITTLE VOYAGES UNDER MY BELT.
I STILL FEEL A MEMORIAL CHILL ON CASTING OFF.

UPDATE ON THE SMITH HOMEFRONT - work on the new master bath continues.  Sydney joins Smith family for an outing at "ye olde cabin" on Platte Lake.  Georgia is becoming an expert at western riding and has a new love named Dusty. We have beans coming out of our ears.  Cooper survives rooftop rite of passage and Izzy is still Izzy. 

Framing, electrical, plumbing and floors are in - sheetrock has started  - selections have been made and remade - the  soaking tub has arrived - so it seems like we are making progress.


 Izzy, Sydney and Georgia patiently waiting for smores at Platte Lake Cabin - hey I told you guys we could have them when it gets dark out.


Sydney caught the first fish and looks like it is a keeper - she then went on to catch 10 more.
.
Looks like we found the sweet spot in the lake - Georgia caught a total of 9

Way to go Cooper

The happy fishermen and fisherwomen.

Time for an evening pontoon ride - oh, oh looks like a storm is abrewing.

Maybe it will miss us.

Calm after the storm.

 Early morning anglers - good work team - nice Bass!


Georgia and her new love Dusty.

The crops are in - we are running out of ideas for cooking beans and neither one of us likes raw tomatoes so not sure why we are growing them. The neighbors are starting to pretend they are not home when they see us coming with a bag in our hands so we have resorted to late night drops on their doorsteps. The potatoes on the other hand are a hot ticket and we have not had a problem finding homes for them and the deer and bunnies took care of the cucumbers and peppers. 

 
Making lots of Salsa!

Soooooo Gooood and our one surviving cucumber hiding in the back.


A rite of passage  -  climbing on the roof from the second story window.  Yes, it was finally Cooper's turn and, of course, needed to be documented.
Izzy continues to love boating and.......

just being Izzy - only trying harder to be more grown up.
