Cabin #1 Kitchen Makeover Photos

Here it is!! Cabin #1 new kitchen!! It is a bit hard to tell the exact color in the photos--it looks great when you see it in person. Jeff and Natalie had a fun time with this makeover! Some of the new additions include: new pewter outlets, new hood over stove, new light, fresh paint, new countertop, new drywall in the picture above, and new cabinet hardware including hinges--Whew! It turned out SO well, and we are happy to present our guests with such a nice kitchen to enjoy!

Sunrise in La Quinta Cove

Cloudy day and the sun finds a opening

and produces a beautiful sunrise. This is why I'm a "morning person".

Thanks Rick for sharing your beautiful photo.

Miss Park Rapids Pagent

I was honored to be asked to be a judge for this amazing event--the Miss Park Rapids Pagent. It was an all day affair with private judging before the main show in the evening, and then more judging later in the night--fun, fun. I was surprised how well attended the event was and how much volunteer and family support there was. I believe there was 35 contestants total that we judged! What a wonderful experience--thanks again, and thanks to the other judges for being so kind!
