Somehow each morning, a different child woke up early on vacation! (each of the 4 days, it was a different kid!:) )
This allowed for enjoying some beautiful sunrises over the lake,
as well as a few potty trips in jammies and galoshes. 🙂
One of the things I was most excited about staying here, was the opportunity to rent a paddle boat. I thought the boys would really enjoy doing it. They had a good time, and even thought I wanted to get the pink sparkly boat, I was okay when the boys said it was too girly 🙂 We settled on the gold one.
Love these shots of my sweetie.
We got a good work out paddling around the lake, it’s a good thing we went in the cool of the morning!
Lorelei was too little to go on, so we took turns paddling the boys around the lake, while the she took a quick cat nap, and then smiled for some pics.
This was a beautiful spot on the beach, and we had a little snack and might have laughed a little too. 🙂
Then back to the cabin for naps for the littles (Elliot’s asleep on the bottom bunk)
and Toph and the big boys headed down to the lake to do some swimming and Sand Castle building. Lorelei, Elliot and I arrived about 2 hours later to see their accomplishments and join in the fun.
Lorelei really wanted to eat the sand…
That night was yummy, yummy tinfoil dinners. Love those.
Toph did a fantastic job planning the menu, and I do believe I gain 10 pounds this trip!
Later, I introduced our big boys to the fine art of card stacking.
And started an addiction!
And then we enjoyed some RAW indoor s’mores.
Marshmallows and cookies. 🙂
