Cedar Rapids Lodge is Open!! at a resort is different every single day!  I think that's what we like about it...sort of like Minnesota weather...if you don't like it, just wait 10 minutes...
If you are doing something at the resort that is not your favorite...there will be 5 other chores that you will enjoy!!  Watching families as they drive in on Saturdays and greeting just special!  They are so excited to finally be on vacation...and we get to share everybody's vacation with them!'s busy right now, but I haven't written or shared any photos, so this post is a photo montage of our life so far in the 2015 resort season!

I made the yearly trek into the woods to put the 50+ elves & critters in their spots for the summer...
These guys had to go together this year...I think they are long-lost brothers!

Found lots of yellow ladyslippers along the trail...

This verse is hanging in the chapel in the woods...a reminder to listen...and find God everywhere!

The beauty of spring blooming in the woods!

Opening the resort means fishing season begins...and we're having a great season!
Calvin caught this giant northern off the dock Memorial weekend!

Ben came up with his family Memorial weekend and caught a lot of great fish!

Conrad's family arrived yesterday...he went fishing this morning at an area lake with his brother and caught this giant fish!  54 1/2 inch musky!  Wow!

The new resort season means new clothes...and we have some fun colors and styles for everyone!

Lots of "new" things at the resort...we also had a fun visit from this little girl and her parents...
She is the smartest & cutest little I sound like her Grandma??  Yep!

And oldest grandson, Will(holding the frame) is going to national competition in Chicago this week with his JBQ team!  Yay, Will!  Junior Bible Quiz kids are amazing...they know their bible facts and can beat most of us to the buzzer!  Good luck to your team, Will!  We'll be praying for all of you!!  We know you'll do your best!

That's all for now!  Maybe your family doesn't have a vacation planned this summer?  If so, give us a call!  We still have some great cabins open and your picture could be in the next blog post...or at least on the fish board in the lodge!
Happy Summer!
