It feels like a Dakota Maid kind of day.

Guess what I get to do today!

Iced coffee, cool fan and endless project ideas....

Need I say more?! 

Hope you are having a Dakota Maid day too,

Did someone say pie???

It isn't mom's famous banana cream pie......

But it is her recipe and my first attempt.

My husband loves this pie and for some reason he is getting spoiled this week.

I can't question why I'm spoiling him because he fully deserves all of it and more. He is my rock when I want to quit, my sunshine when skies are gray and most of all the love of my life. I look forward to many more pies. 

Counting my blessings,

What a fun weekend we had.
We met up with some great friends to "camp" in their gorgeous 5th wheel.

We visited the Okerson family farm and stopped to say "Hello" and "Thank you" to a very dear Aunt Emma on the way. We miss her dearly.

We went to the zoo.

A little bit of shopping before hitting our traditional supper spot.

Followed by one of Kaden's famous smores.

We had our share of deep conversations and laughter as always. 

On our way home we planted 18 trees for the future Okerson generations.

Overall it was a "lovely" weekend. Hope to it again soon! 
Thanks Jeff, Wendy and Kaden.
