Same Scene, Some Different Characters

Summer weekend=off to the cottage. We were able to sneak away on Thursday night and meet our friends Anne and Rick(AKA Aunt Anne and Uncle Rick). We spent Friday biking with them which was great fun. There is a trail that goes from our cottage into the city. Anne approves of this because she needs the promise of a cold beer at the turn to get her purpose driven bike ride on. 40 miles all said and done.
If you're looking for me I'm the midget.

With that behind us we spent the rest of the weekend with more friends, family, food, fun, and dance parties. My sister and family were in, along with her in laws, my Mom and Dad and Grandma came out everyday, and Brian and the kids were there. Lee and Harv joined us for dinner on Saturday also. Plenty of of people to mix and match, and a nice humm of laughter and conversation hung in the air.

You are my sunshine(or twinkie)?

Speaking of sunshine, there was a lack of it on Saturday. The rain was relentless. What do you do with 10 kids on a day like that? You buy them t-shirt decorating materials so they can take their dance party to the next level. They worked all day, all together, and oh yeah it was the best ever:)

There was no shortage of lovin' on babies...

And we celebrated Nolan's 9th birthday. Where did that time go? We love you Noly!

It wasn't a total washout, we were able to sneak out to the boats for a quick spin.

I will miss this feeling of heading back to the house after a lazy day of water fun to get cleaned up and enjoy food and drinks and dance parties. Sweet summertime memories.
