Bumps and Bruises

There were a few bumps and bruises, but luckily nothing serious. Here Lily got a cut while swimming, most likely from a shell on the bottom of the lake.

Lucy really enjoyed getting pushed on the swing by her uncle. She’s right at the age where she’s too big for these swings, but remembers them longingly. The swing is attached very securely and Lucy got to go “Super High.”

The Lake At Night

Finally, there were even a few minutes for a night time shot of the lake. Looks calm, but I was getting eaten alive!

Tomorrow, baseball.

Closing Weekend

Sunrise on Lake Shawano

This past weekend was closing weekend at the cottages. It was a long weekend with lots of driving. The trip up is 6 1/2 hours if we don’t stop. With the kids (and, who am I kidding, me too) we need to stop at least once if not twice. This makes for a long drive of 7 to 8 hours.

Closing weekend is the weekend that all of the kids descend on the cabins to help get them ready for winter. The main attraction is removing the docks and boat ramps. Once that’s done, it can be a mishmash of whatever is left to do.

Even with all the work, it’s nice to see my in-laws. If only we didn’t have to make it a 1 day trip flanked by 7-8 hours of driving. Oy!
