Family, Vacation

Father’s Day and a Lake House

I’m super behind on posts.  I’m really sorry!

In June the weekend before Father’s day my sister came to visit and took us to a lake house near Cedar Creek.  It was a nice and relaxing weekend.  When we got there we unpacked all the food we brought and made ourselves at home.

Then we started up the grill.  I found these HUGE marshmallows at Aldi and Ian was all about the marshmallows.  We told him we were going camping (as you know this is as close to camping as I’ll go) and he asked “Are we going to make s’mores???”  because there is a Bubble Guppies episode about camping and they talk about s’mores.  He’s an expert on camping from watching that one episode 🙂

The next morning my sister and I participated in a 5k in town.  Everyone else stayed at the cabin and waited for us to get back.  The 5k was at the Cedar Creek Brewery and we all got finisher glasses and beer afterwards.  We stayed for the awards ceremony not knowing that my sister won 3rd place for her age group!

We picked up some coal and lighters and some more food while we were in town.  We got back to the house and relaxed a bit while packing some sandwiches for lunch to eat on the boat we rented.

We all took naps after the boating and woke up in time for more grilling and relaxation 🙂  We attempted to make a little fire in the fire pit again and we were successful!!  Although the marshmallows tasted a little like lighter fluid…

The next morning we ate some breakfast and packed up to drive on back home, but not before taking some early morning photos.

Such a fun weekend, minus the mosquito bites 😀
