This weekend was both relaxing and exhausting. 
Relaxing because M and I holed up with 6 other couples in a cabin 2 hours north of the cities.
Exhausting because I'm an old lady and drinking 2 nights in a row, and staying up past midnight, takes a lot outta a girl. 

M and the guys go ice fishing every winter and they'd mentioned this cabin they stay at. One of the guys thought it'd be fun to plan a couples weekend at said cabin. Well, we quickly discovered that said "cabin" is the equivalent of a northern mansion, and served as a perfect retreat for the weekend. 

We had 2 puppies come with, too. Charlie is the black and tan one, Max is the red one. Charlie was so calm and so sweet... Max? well, Max is like his daddy and ready to party at any given moment. 

The weekend started off wholesome..

And then because this is a totally normal thing to do, Tom and Andy went upstairs for a costume change. 

We played a lot of card games ..

and lounged by the fire (since this lovely spring brought snow on Friday in Minnesota. 


and enjoyed a lot of family dinners at the giant dining room table. 

and because I am sleepy, and have a kitty who missed his momma

I'm going leave you with that, and go snuggle.

Hope you all had a good weekend!
