Back from Holidays

We just came home from a great trip to the lake.  We purchased a trailer this year, we found a great website that sells repossessed items.  It was a great find, now we have something to travel in as a family to visit family in other provinces and when we start demoing our house we have a place to sleep!

We travelled a couple hours east to Tobin Lake.  What a great time as a family.  The girls discovered they love the game UNO.  We read a lot, hung out in the boat and went fishing!Dustin with my fish

I have to brag for a moment about the huge fish that I caught!  This is my husband with my fish.  It is a 14lb Walleye, that was 32.5” long.  That is a big Walleye.  Most of the Walleye that we have caught have been under 4lbs.  So this was pretty exciting.  The girls couldn’t believe it.  I couldn’t believe my eyes when I pulled it up and this is what I saw.  A very memorable day for me!

We also spotted this bald eagle watching us as we fished.  So majestic as it sat in the top of the pine tree.  Beautiful. DSCF0584




A storm brewing on the other side of the lake got my attention.  It was awesome to see the strength of weather.  As I sat and watched it move closer to us I thought- no amount of money or power could change the fact that we would get wet.  How could anyone think that they in any way, shape or form could possibly be bigger or greater than God.DSCF0566

It was a great time to get away as a family for a time of rest.  One morning I spent time with each of my girls doing devotions.  Their knowledge and understanding of scripture is incredible.  I am a very proud Mom.

We still have a couple more camping/fishing trips this year.  I can’t wait for those experiences.  I am so thankful that we have found something to do as a family that we all enjoy!


  1. Sounds like you guys had alot of fun. We are hoping to head up to Tobin sometime in August if all goes well. Congrats on the fish.

  2. Looks like you had a great time. :0)

  3. What a huge fish...caught in a lake!! Well done!!
    Our family enjoys camping together as well. Times are changing though, now that our boy is almost 15! He is starting to pursue his own interests and our cherished family time is becoming less and less:(

    Can't wait to hear all about your summer! Ever heard of geo-caching? ( Its a world wide treasure hunt. Check out the website-their is a short 2 minute video.
