“Water Cabin!”

…or Lake Cabin as anyone over 3 would call it.

4 degrees of separation allowed us to use a lake cabin in upper Minnesota this past weekend. Thank you again to every link in that chain!

We arrived to the cabin Saturday afternoon and until early Tuesday morning just before we left the weather was less than perfect. It didn’t rain the whole time, the wind didn’t blow the whole time and it wasn’t cold the whole time so we were able to have some outdoor fun.

The boys wore their life jackets pretty much the whole time. There are few things that I am overprotective mama bear about and water safety in on the top of that list.

It was too cold to go swimming but we did spend a lot of time on the dock

and in the canoe.

It was the first time either of the boys have been in a canoe or a boat of any kind and they LOVED it!

The whole Shannon gang was able to make it, even little Zeke.

The cabin was incredible but the generosity of the owners are what really stick out in my mind. How gracious to let a family stay in your cabin that you have never met. We all loved the cabin, but I don’t think anyone had as much fun as Lucy.

Previously Lucy was scared of the water. It took her family rowing away in a canoe to conquer that fear.

She never did get deep enough to have to swim, but by the end of the weekend she was jumping in the lake voluntarily!

We ate a lot.

Slept a lot.

Played a great new game I got for my birthday from Ben, Carmen and Zeke.

and had delicious banana s’mores.

Many more pics here!

    How Fun! The scenery is beautiful and it looks like everyone had a great time. I’m sure Michael will be talking about the “water cabin” for a very long time. Thanks for sharing the pictures.

    Jess- Take a banana slice it the long way without cutting through the back half of the banana peel. Stuff the inside with marshmallow and chocolate. Tim like to add PB but I think it makes it a bit runny. Wrap the whole thing in tinfoil. Then you stick it in the fire pit or on a grill for a few minutes. Open and eat with a spoon and a large glass of milk!
