Grandma Marilyn, the Husband's grandmother, has a special place in my heart. While she was alive, we spent many weekends up on Lake Vermilion at her cabin. We took her fishing, we visited, we ate, and played cards. I got to know her very well. She left this world for Heaven January 30, 2005. I hadn't been up to the cabin until just recently. Though it was strange to be there without her, it was time to share this special place with the kids.
We had a warm, sunny, perfect day on the lake!
The fishing wasn't great, but that didn't matter to the sisters.
We had to bring our Big Martha with us.
Mummi Alice drove up to join us. She brought fun hats and lots of snacks. We took her for a memorable boat ride!

"Please leave the place as clean as you found it," with a picture of her and her beloved dog Katie.
Nora Marilyn is named after Grandma Marilyn.
Marilyn was not crazy about this photo, but I love it. She is straight off the lake, still in her fishing hat, just as I remember her.
