We spent Memorial day weekend up north at the cottage. We did some projects with Mom and Dad, and also had a lot of fun too, even though the weather was not great.
Patrick got his fishing license for the year and was pumped to catch us dinner!
He did catch a few big ones, though tossed them all back - one while using his Leinie's hook!
Can you say " join us out here!?!?"
James took to his new life jacket pretty fast!
I am sure he will like it even more when he is wearing fewer layers!
Driving the boat with Buppa - I think one of the best parts of the weekend for both of them!
We took turns watching Patrick ski - no one else in our family wanted to get wet!
Bath time at the lake... when I was a kid, that meant baby shampoo in the lake on Saturday night... now, the grand kids get their own personal sink!
Grammy was itching to get James in there this spring, and he was plenty dirty!
In case you can't tell, James loves the tub and doesn't mind getting water dumped on his head... hopefully this will transfer over to the lake this summer!
This one cracks me up!
One of the projects from the weekend was helping with the Kid Kave... this is something my Dad has dreamt up and the kids (and let's be honest, the big kids too) are going to love it ! It is basically the coolest hole in the wall (literately!) you will ever see. He is building it in the crawl space under the family room through a hole in the basement.
More photos as it grows - but for now, here are Patrick and Corey helping to sledge hammer through the cement block from the crawl space.
And here are Patrick and James on the basement side - post sledging!
A job well done guys!
