In mid July, it was off for a week to the great

Northwoods of Wisconsin

Along with my dad, sister Laurie, Jean and their families, we were off for a week on the Little St. Germain Lake just north of Rhinelander. Time was spent fishing, swimming, talking around the campfire and just having a great time being together as a family. 

Sister Nancy and family couldn't make it this year, but hopefully will be there next time. Pictured left are all the kids on the dock with the picture below of Kathy's giant bass she caught by the pier with worms. 

She battled that mammoth for about 2 minutes - and provided the entire camp within enough fish to live on for the week. This girl can fish - and I can sure edit photos.

Midweek I had to fly back to Pittsburgh for work, but made it back to take Pop to an Indian Reservation where they had a casino. He pillaged the Slot Machines while I lost it all at the BlackJack table.

The boys loved the little boat we had taking it out multiple times for spins in front of our house.

Picture left has Laurie, Kathy and Jean in their best Charlie's Angels fighting pose as they head off to do some serious shopping. Last picture has Kathy fishing off the dock on a beautiful calm morning. 


A Great time.
