We just returned from a four-day trip to my in-laws’ cabin. The last time we were able to visit was a year ago and it felt great to finally return. This was a quieter visit than usual, as we were there from Mon-Thurs and only saw about 1/4 of the kids’ cousins while we were there.
But. BUT. We still had a wonderful time. I spent minimal time on my phone and made a point to take most of my photos with my camera. The girls took to fishing, paddleboarding, tubing, and even being friendly toward each other during the few days we were there. Ares had a tendency to overheat fast (as you’ll see in the photos of his pink face), but he found an immense enthusiasm for boat rides (preferably on the speedboat), popsicles, juiceboxes, pushing dump trucks around, and wearing his (pink) lifejacket.
As for the adults, we played games in the evening, had snacks, gathered by the campfire, and caught up on American Ninja Warrior. I mean, it doesn’t get more patriotic than that!
So much thanks to my mother-in-law and father-in-law for graciously hosting us, always helping to supervise our kids, and for making such tasty food. (I think I’m going to be dreaming of the fish fry still). I sure hope we can make it up to the cabin again before the summer is over. I love that our kids will have these fantastic summer memories here with their grandparents.
I hope you’ve had a wonderful start to your July as well as a safe and happy 4th!
