Going Home To Spooner For The Weekend...YES!!!!

Good Morning to all my blog friends. I am up bright and early with the birds today, I am getting ready to head to Spooner for the weekend. My plan is to spend time with my family and also attend the Musky Festival in Hayward, Wisconsin. My family loves the Musky Festival, it just wouldn't be summer without our yearly Musky Festival tradition. It is so cool, main street is full of crafters selling unique items, awesome food stands and there is a fair with rides going on at the other end of town. When my kids were little, they would hit their Grandpa Ray up to ride the rides and he always gave in....he was also a sucker for the go-cart track. Everytime we came to Hayward, Grandpa Ray brought them to the go-cart track and then it was off to Coops for the best pizza in town.....they LOVED IT......he was so good to them, he is such a softy when it comes to his grandkids.

But anyway, Poor Brent is not able to come home (to Spooner) with me this time or maybe not anytime this summer because he can't get anytime off from the cranberry marsh. It is going to be a LONG summer for him as he has 50 acres of new plantings to tend to and it pretty much has him by the neck right now, I will miss him!!!! I told him that he HAS to get at least one day off so he can come with me to the Spooner Rodeo....that's a MUST!!!!!!

I am hoping next week to post a tribute to my hard workin husband. I have been taking pictures from the start of his very large project....building from scratch a cranberry marsh. I have to organize them all and post them so you all can see from start of finish what a awesome project this has been for him. Last year at this time, it was just a corn field, but as of last week they finished planting the first 50 acres of cranberry vines. The plan is that the marsh will end up being 175 acres of cranberry beds, still a lot of work ahead but he is the man for the job....he is so talented and such a hard worker!!!!! I am so proud of him!!!!!!

This job is why we moved to Wisconsin Rapids. There have been a lot of changes in our lives this past year but we are making progress and that is all we can really ask for. Having a job is HUGE right now in this economy and we THANK GOD for it!!!! He has a plan for us and we judge our Lord and Savior FAITHFUL so we live everyday knowing that God is in control and we will trust HIM!!!!!!

Sorry I don't have any picture to post today...but I am sure my carmera will be very busy this weekend capturing all the fun.....so stay tuned, I will post new pics when I get home. Have a BLESSED weekend everyone....Rhonda
