pioneer woman

We spent 4 nights and 5 days at the family camp at the lake. Such a wonderful relaxing place. It has all the modern conveniences that makes an early pioneer woman jump for joy!

Lucky, lucky me!! This is the stove I get to cook on! Oops, this picture shows we are in need of a polishing.
Funny thing, the burners don't turn on with the turn of a dial. This is what we needed to do so we could cook. We were completely out of wood.

Of course we also had to make more of this for the fireplace in case we needed heat.
After you fix a lovely meal you need to go to the pump to get water to heat on the stove so you can wash dishes. Here is our ice box. Just kidding, what do you think we are anyway. We do have electricity, so we have a modern refrigerator. The ice box is used for a pantry.

We had the boys spend one night with us. They were able to spend 2 full days playing in the woods, swimming, going for boat rides and fishing.
We didn't catch anything big enough to keep, but this little guy was so cute I had to post the picture.
On a side note....this is my husbands fishing boat. The boat he just had to have. In the 5 years we have had this boat he has never caught a fish that was a keeper. Not for lack of trying.
