Posts Tagged ‘outdoors’

This year has been such a busy year that I am so very far behind that I’m not sure I’ll get caught up before the new year begins. Since April we have spent a lot of time on our property on Misty Bay, clearing land for building, creating a beach for swimming, cutting/splitting fire wood for the winter, and just generally enjoying ourselves.

In the last four  months we’ve spent about three months digging, cutting, hauling, fishing, swimming, and of course laughing at our dogs’ antics.

Meet Vivian. She’s a 580-year-old vampire who exudes sex, has a talent for drama, and is passionate about two things: her human husband, Rafe, and their resort for the undead.

The birds are twitterbated and building nests, the flowers are starting to bloom, the rivers are running free and sun is warm and welcoming.

We went out with the kids yesterday and took advantage of the fresh powder we got over the last week. We had an absolute blast and I got some really good shots of the guys taking jumps with their sleds. I think my son-in-law may have even caught one or two of me jumping one of the snow banks, and of course hubby tried really hard to get some air with his big ole sled, the operative word is ‘tried’. lol

This first one is of my son-in-law with his newest sled, a Skidoo MXZ, that he’s spent a lot of time on to get it in really nice shape and looking spiffy.
