Let Summer Begin

Memorial Day weekend, we traveled up to the cabin for the first time this  year. While the weather was anything but summery, it was the kick-off weekend off summer in my mind.  It was also Isla's first trip to the cabin extra-uterinally.  She enjoyed herself exploring all the new things to see, feel, and taste.

Miles, Grandpa Tom, Ben and I wandered down to the lake to take a spin on Grandpa's new fishing boat.  He had to "park" it at the neighbors dock as the dock in their community broke with the extremely high water levels this year.  It was a bit of a walk away.  Miles had to bring "floppy fish" and fish off the side of the boat. 


Many of the trees that had previously been on dry land are now growing right out of the lake! 

We had a nice, peaceful tour of the lake :).

Isla loved all the new things to see and play with.  This sock monkey is her best friend at the cabin! 

Both kids joined us in our nightly routine of a camp fire and s'mores.  We also cooked hot dogs on this occasion. 


Miles was a bit intimidated by the fire and stood way to far away to actually roast his marshmallow :). He had a hard time cooking his hot dog for the same reason.

Miles  like the idea of a  s'more...roasting smarshmallows, chocolate...

But wasn't sure he liked it in reality.  Who doesn't like a s'more?!?!  He preferred to eat the chocolate on it's own :)

We had a great first weekend of "summer" and plan to spend many weekends at the cabin inn the months to come!
