Week in Review- September 12, 2014


Welcome back to my Week in Review!  Thanks for taking the time to stop by!!

This week brought some travel!  We ventured to a resort called “Wilderness on the Lake” in Wisconsin Dells, WI.  Getting everyone’s schedule to work was quite a task, but we got the WHOLE family together and spent the whole weekend making fun memories!

My sweet in-laws decided that they wanted to do something nice for us, so they offered to pay for the condo for the whole weekend.  How cool is that??  My parents were generous and offered to watch our dogs while we went on our little weekend trip.  What can I say?  AWESOME!  We are blessed!

Here is a little collage that I put together that shows just some of the fun we had!  The young’ns spent the whole day at the water park enjoying the crazy, scary rides.  I decided to stay back at the condo and read, surf the web, cook dinner and I actually took a nap!  It’s just what I needed!  Sorry I didn’t get any pics of the waterpark…it was AMAZING! (and it wore them out)

We’ve had such a crazy summer here that our garden just isn’t producing like I thought it would.  Thankfully, my parents have had PLENTY of extra tomatoes that they were willing to pass our way!  BLT’s were on the dinner menu this week! Just look at those REAL tomatoes!


This sad girl has been in pain this week.  She has hip dysplasia and arthritis in her back and we can’t seem to get the right dosage of medicine to help her feel better.  We’re trying a new combination of meds soon, so hopefully she’ll be back to her old self.  In the mean time, I’ve been home a lot this week keeping an eye on her and giving her extra belly scratches.


One day this week, she felt pretty good so we went to a park where she could sniff and smell around without too much stress and strain on her hips.  Oh boy were there were some delicious smells….she even found a few chipmunk holes to investigate!  Here’s a pic from the ride home.  Yes, Minnie likes to go to….she thinks she’s a BIG Labrador retriever! Ha!


That’s it for this week!  Stay tuned next Tuesday for a post about my favorite and most loved dog toy!!

  3. Stopping by from the link up! It is so terrible when our fur babies don’t feel well. Our pup gets seizures and I swear it pains me more than it does him! I hope she gets to feeling better soon!
