Lake of the Woods

On Friday, Andy, Liddy and I headed down to Lake of the Woods to spend the night with Greg and Erica (Adam was with Grandma and Grandpa!) Greg's parents bought a lake house there last month and we were excited to get to test it out.

The house is perfect and the views are spectacular. In a little less than a month, the house already feels like a home, better yet, there is even a little basket in the kitchen filled with lake house themed Christmas ornaments. Greg's mom is truly a woman after my own heart! :)

The dogs had a blast running around after each other and of course, swimming. It was all we could do to keep Liddy from jumping off the dock right when we got there. Roxie however needed a little convincing, so Erica and I took her in the paddle boat over to the little beach area so she could ease into it.

After our water fun, we headed inside for cocktails and appetizers. Andy and I were tasked with bringing the apps, so we did a little cheese plate, some shrimp cocktail, and the tastiest, goat cheese and crab cake stuffed portabella mushrooms you've ever had! Tooting my own horn, yes, yes I am.

For dinner, Greg made some fantastic ribs, and Erica made her awesome homemade macaroni and cheese. And since that wasn't enough, for dessert, they whipped up root beer floats! Taste!

While it was a short visit, it was still a great time, and considering it's only about a 60 minute drive from our house, it was well worth it. Thanks to Greg's parents for buying the house--we plan to help to get your money's worth out of it! :)
