Cabin Fun

Our July disappeared in to memory yesterday.  I heard on the news that we were 100 degrees or over everyday in July and I know that explains the lack of energy ~ or lack of ANYTHING accomplished in July!!

But in between the pool time, I did take a picture or two and thought I would take a minute to remember.

This is a picture of sweet Jackson at the airport in the Admirals Club waiting for our flight to the cabin.  Jessica and her boys traveled with us and they were so good.

Here's Grandpa - caught working on vacation.

We are finally at the cabin ~ Laura and her two met us in Minnesota and traveled with us to the cabin.

Ben and Cooper ready for fun.  You can see the long deck behind the boys, this made for many races up and down all week.  They loved it.  {sorry I cut Jackson out of the pic}

Ben and Cooper on the boat.

They love to drive and our lake is small with usually no other boats on the water so they get lots of opportunities to do just that.  Don't you love Jackson's Barbie life vest?  I'll have to get a new one next year, I don't think I can get away with that on an almost 3 year old.

My sister and her family came up one day, and I was thankful that the kids could eat outside:-) 

Look who thinks he is so big!  No more booster for Jackson at the cabin.  He wanted to sit just like the big kids.  So cute!!

I think this was the best shot I could get of all 6.  Now that I have enlarged this picture I see I should go back and crop out my messy kitchen.  But - that would probably delay this post another month at the rate I am going so instead you get a glimpse of reality!

Another day Laura and Jessica's long time friend Nikki came to visit with 2 of her 3 children.

These 3 have been best friends since they were 1.  It is so wonderful to watch this friendship continue with the next generation. {Even though Nikki lives in Minnesota and my girls are in Texas}  Bob and I are also good friends with Nikki's parents.  They were our neighbors long ago and now have a place about an hour from our cabin.  Kate and I spent many hours watching our 4 play, and this trip we got to watch our grandchildren play!  What a blessing that is!!

Our sweet granddaughters at the little tea table.

And, as always, at the end of the cabin visit we always take a picture by the "big fish".

It's tradition.

Another fun summer at the cabin.  We treasure these memories and the time we get to spend with our family and friends.

Sue this particular "ordinary miracle" looks just wonderful. I like you too much to be covetous of your wonderful Minnesota getaway cabin and the family time you got to have there.

I did giggle about the Barbie vest. Why do I feel that that particular picture might disappear from the archives some day? So cute.

Sue, your family is so beautiful. And how blessed that you are such a close-knit bunch. You are creating wonderful memories for those grands. Thanks for sharing your wonderful pix of your Minnesota "resort"! And thanks so much for your kind and encouraging words - it means so much!
