Mini-Vacation at the cottage....and my Mixed Media Monday submission for places....

Hi Everyone...


What a wonderful weekend....we headed away for a long weekend...we left Friday and just got back late Sunday night....It was nice to get away with some wonderful friends.

We have a family cottage up in Huntsville and we love escaping to a place where the stars are like glitter at night and the peacefulness is so amazing....well until you hear the boats that is....


Cole is just like his Daddy...he loves his Daddy's boat and as soon as he wakes up he says..."Mommy, Daddy big Boat"...it's so cute to see him love some of the same things Brad loves...
what a smile..he melts my heart each and every day...

Here is the view from the cottage....my favorite time of year here besides summer time is the fall when all the leaves turn into these wonderful colours...just amazing...




a view of the lake from the boat.... and my submission to Mixed Media Monday this week...The theme is places and what better place to post then one of the pieces I made up in Northern Canada....the scenery is amazing. This is a ink, pencil and watercolour painting I did a while back...it was a gift for my husband who showed me some amazing places up North....


Well have a wonderful Monday ....


Cheers,

Diana

Beautiful landscape pic.

Cole looks so happy, its good to start perking kids interests early :)

My weekend was pretty quiet, I was able to do some reading and spend time with my mom.

Hugs, Danette

Oh how wonderful to see little Cole in a place that you so obviously love. Ah, a taste of cottage life! Made me sigh just looking at the photos and the beautiful piece that you created. It brought back so many memories of time spent in Northern Ontario.

Oh, and I have YET to visit Canada. I'm going to talk my husband into taking a road trip to Canada in his new car this summer! I heard Niagra Falls on your side are stunningly beautiful. That is way north for us!
