We are back from a week at the cabin. I could seriously get used to lake life on a permanent basis. We had beautiful weather all week except for a few showers over the weekend. Our friends came up on Tuesday and our relatives were up for the fourth. A nice combination of visitors and just time by ourselves. Got some fun photos from the week so I’ll just give you the highlights:
The week started last Saturday with Cassie and Callie’s soccer tournament. They played one game and won! (Although at this age they don’t keep score and everyone gets a medal at the end. The girls each scored a bunch of goals so that was fun. My parents came down to watch and we all had pizza for lunch.)
Sunday night we went up to the cabin for the week. We did a lot of fishing, swimming and relaxing. Tuesday our friends Terri and her kids (5th grade daughter, 3rd grade son) stopped by for the afternoon which was a really nice visit. They caught a turtle in their fishing net.
Tuesday night we drove back home for two soccer games, Lexi played in Westonka and we picked up Joey after his game to bring him back to the cabin.
Wednesday, Jerad came up and took some of the kids to get a new canoe! Now we can take the whole family to the Boundary Waters (of course you know I’m kidding, taking all six kids to the Boundary Waters…yeah I don’t think so).
Thursday (the fourth) we did venture to Quarry Park and went rock climbing.
At lunch time my family joined us for the day. My brother Tim, his wife Merrilee and their two little girls, Savannah and Chloe and my younger brother Bill spent the afternoon with us and stayed for the boat parade and fireworks on our lake. Someone always puts on a professional style fireworks show that we can watch right from our beach!
The rest of the weekend was swimming, playing with the neighbors at the beach, biking, watching wildlife (check out the Crane on our dock), fireworks and a friendly game of “forks” (the spoons were all in the dishwasher).
Overall things went smooth and we had a nice time. Next year we will have to get our canoe dollied-up for the boat parade.
