Cottage Season Begins

We love our cottage.  We have a family cottage that my Grandpa owns and have grown up spending weekends there with our cousins, aunts and uncles.  Now that the family is so big, each family gets their own individual weekends, but long weekends still belong to everyone.

May 24 is kind of the official start to the summer at the cottage.  Every year we have a canoe trip and so a lot of the family will go up that weekend.  This year's canoe trip was a very condensed version due to a combination of weather and people's schedules, but for those who went, it was better than nothing! (

Babies have been bathed in the sink for years at the cottage since we only have a shower.  So of course I had to give Cooper his first official sink bath.  He loved it of course and loved splashing around!

Parker had a great time at the cottage.  My cousin's kids were there and he loved having kids to play with and spending time with his aunt and uncle.  The dinos were his favourite.  Here dino is eating cucumber of course.
He also had his very first ice cream cone because Aunt Linda is more nervy than mommy. (And mommy doesn't like messes).  He did pretty well with it though and didn't even bit the bottom off.  Although he did try to take a chunk out of the side.
These two cousins are 3 months apart.  How lucky they are that they will get to grow up together.  

I wasn't sure if Parker could handle the whole canoe trip, so he just went on a short ride across the lake.  I think that hopefully next year he will be able to go for a few hours with Daddy and Auntie Tal.  I have been breastfeeding or pregnant for like the last 3 years, so who knows, maybe next year I will go too.

It was a great weekend.  So relaxing and nice to spend with family.
