Family Cottage Vacation

Every year we pack the wagon to the rafters and head up North for a week of fun in the sun.  Sometimes the car can be quite a silly place!

One of the greatest things about this week is that not only do we get to spend some quality time together as a family, but we also get to spend some time with some great friends.

We got to celebrate Sarah's birthday while we were up there and we also got to celebrate Ginou's 40th seventeen times.  There was no shortage of reasons to eat cake or drink celebratory cocktails! 

There was also a lot of time spend on the water.  If the (big and little) kids weren't on the digging on the beach or jumping off the dock, they were on a sitting on a boat or a hanging on to a tube.  Lola quickly discovered her love for tubing and spend quite a lot of time with Zach and Alexandra whipping around the lake laughing and screaming!

The tube ride that Jon and Darcy went on was possibly one of the funniest things I have seen in my life.  Lola was concerned that her dad was hurt, but once he gave her the thumbs up, she couldn't stop laughing.

Cottage vacations can't be all action all the time, both Quinn and Lola enjoyed their little break on the big comfy couch at the end of the day.

Face painting remains one of those activities that Lola loves, so we brought out kit up to the cottage and came up with these beauties. 

We had a lot of snacks and a lot of fun times and pretty much spent every waking moment outside.
I asked Dylan and Lola to just pause playing for one second and get together for a quick photo, this was how they posed.  After they checked out the photo to make sure it was a good one Dylan asked if I could post it up on Facebook since he figured that everyone would want to see it.

We had such a great family cottage vacation this year that Lola is already planning next years visit!
