Off to the cottage...

tomorrow...it's a lot of work and prep going away for a week.
I know I've been slacking on the posting front this week...but it seems like everyday I have tried to sit down and blog, something has interrupted me...and I finished my taxes, so my husband is happy.
I'm packed, the girls are packed, we just have to go grocery shopping.
Some of you may remember me telling you about going to this crazy big cottage...but for those of you who missed it...
we're off to celebrate our friend's 40th Birthday...ready for it...there are 10 families going...and LOTS of kids. Are we crazy? yes....are we staying in one house? YES....It's a 10 bedroom cottage(mansion) on Lake Muskoka (Canada). The landscape reminds me of Sweden a lot, and the lakes up there are gorgeous and clean(a little chilly, but hoping for LOTS of sunshine)
Here are some pictures, but some of them were taken just after the snow melted::

There's a large kitchen, 2 ovens and 2 fridges...we're all planning one meal for everyone, I think it may get a little busy, but it'll be fun!Here's a snap shot of the fire pit (if the mosquitos are not too bad we'll be out there roasting smores every evening) and below is the dining room which seats 16 comfortably...wow...I have a hard time thinking what to cook for 8 people, let alone 20! You can still see the ice on the lake in this one...
The inside of this house has so much light...I may not be posting much for a week, because I have no idea if I can get Internet or not...but...I'll be painting and sketching...so I'll post when I return.
I can't wait...it'll be a blast...apparently there's an 18 seater theatre in the basement!
The boat house has canoes and a BBQ with a kitchen and bathroom inside...I'm sure many people will be hanging out down there most of the day.
And here's the exterior of the house...it will be fun to fill these photos with friends and their kids...check back next week for updates.

I hope you have a wonderful weekend...and week if we can't get Internet have a wonderful week!
I have SO much to do today...I better get moving.
