summer at the cabin

The cabin will forever and always be one of our family's favorite places. If you ask the girls if they'd rather go to the cabin or to Lagoon, they will likely say the cabin. The fact that something can trump Lagoon is huge, especially for Minnie. These pictures are from a last minute trip we took up there in July and I actually asked Minnie that very thing that weekend...Lagoon or the cabin? Look what won out!

There were an unbelievable amount of wild flowers blooming that weekend, and as you can see, the girls had the time of their lives picking bouquets of them to add to their giant cups they placed on the table as a centerpiece for all of our meals. Minnie and Lou spent about 50% of their time picking flowers and the other 50% of the time on the swings and they were entirely satisfied. It was such a relaxing weekend. I love the cabin when lots of people are there, but now that we have more kids, I'm starting to prefer it when it's just our little family. We can do things at our speed and the whole day just feels slow and easy. 

Hopefully we will make it up there again once more before the snow falls. The season is just never long enough. I just love that we have a place that we can make memories with our kids, and what makes it even more special is that it's a place that Robert holds so close to his heart because it's  where he made memories with his family when he was young.
