Day 7

Awoke to a nice sunrise over the frozen lake.

And this morning buddy.

The girls made their way into the hot tub before breakfast.

Nice and warm on a cold morning

The lake is gorgeous covered in ice.

I accidentally left a whole load of clothes, including the girls bathing suits, in the dryer at our last resort, do we had to do a store run.

We needed groceries anyway.

And hair masks.

After our necessities run, the girls wanted Mexican.

We ate at Vista Grande

Then we did some fun shopping.

The Landing on Main Street is an adorable little shopping Village with a General Store, Antique Shop, boutiques, and a Tea room.

We spent the longest time Antiquing. Talk about a history lesson over every tiny item. Mimi said she could have stayed in there ALL DAY!

We found the tiniest little things.

Non breakable Tea Cup set for Nina

A tiny Bible for me

Tiny bottles

Tiny iron

Tiny scissors

Tiny tea cups

And the most adorable tiny phone

We also found some neat vintage toys and games.

I planned on teaching the girls how to play Rummy on this trip anyway, so now they get to learn with vintage cards!

Nina enjoyed pretend to type on this antique typewriter .

And we found hair dye from the 1960’s. More on the fun we had with that later….

Yeah, never have I ever been ready to leave a store before the kids. That was fun.

So this is where we are. The Lake is everywhere!

Lake People

This is a new place to fall in love with.

This may become our new “Lake House“

I think the girls are on board with that.

Remember that vintage hair dye we got today?

The girls wanted to try it on us.

So, we did

Here is my BEFORE pic



It smells like a hair salon

It’s a very old bottle of product.

The girls wanted to put some in their hair too, so we made a test strip on Mimi and Becca.

Then we used those hair masks

Cutie in a shower cap

You wouldn’t believe how good she smells after letting that sit for 30 minutes.

Girls started prepping dinner to make a spread for the Season premier of When Calls the Heart.

They wouldn’t let me in the kitchen.

It turned out delicious!

Shredded Rotisserie chicken, provolone, and Muenster cheese

Grapes blueberries and soft cheese kabobs

Broccoli with ranch dip, chips and guacamole

And Margarita with fresh mozzarella, basil, grape tomatoes, and balsamic glaze.

I think they did a great job.

The show was definitely a hit.

And hanging with my girls is definitely a special treat.

I nice day to round out our first week away from home.
