Working/Vacation with Family

Because we have family living in 3 different countries when we're planning a vacation it almost always includes visiting family...we love it but, it's also really nice to spend time alone just with our family. This past week a friend lent us there cabin and we had a blast! The weather was perfect. The cabin is so quiet...and it was amazing to see the lake out of every window. Here's a short list of the fun stuff: -We went for a couple of boat rides - Leyton wasn't a fan! I wish I would've taken a picture because he looked hilarious...we brought his booster seat and attached it to a bucket chair, then had him in a life jacket, then a hat...he could barely move! And he didn't like the wind our boat rides were short but tons of fun!

-Adriah and I went paddle boating. She would make up songs and sing for the whole ride. Love her.

-Matt and I watched for shooting stars at night - there were a ton! And it was so romantic...even for old people married 9 years!

-We played games. Adriah is learning to spell and they had Junior Boggle so, we played every day!

-Watched cooking shows - love those Iron chef's!

-Matt kicked my butt in Scramble - 3 embarrassing!

-We went swimming in the lake every day. Lake water is definitely cold (or "refreshing" as my mom would say) but still nice once you got in!

-They had fishing poles and both Adriah and I learned how to fish. We didn't catch anything but, had tons of fun learning how!

There you have it...kinda an ordeal to get everyone up there but, once we were there it was heavenly.

I did have to bring my computer to continue editing the whole time we were there but, I didn't mind!
