Grampa Mac's Cabin

Every year for Labor Day, since 2000, my Dad has rented a cabin at Hawley Lake. And for the past 4 or 5 years he's rented the same one every time so my niece and nephews think that it's "our" cabin, hence the name "Grampa Mac's Cabin." We just got back today.

We had a lot of fun! Colton got to go fishing for the first time... he could have cared less - all he wanted to do was play in the mud! It was so fun to see his cute expression as he got dirtier and dirtier.



I even got to fish for a little bit, but unfortunately I didn't catch anything (OH - except for a big crawdad!)



Right after this picture was taken, Colton broke the camera! I'm not even sure what he did, but now it doesn't work at all - luckily the SD card was not damaged...

We got some good pictures this morning on my dad's camera so I'll post those as soon as I get them.

It was so much fun to just hang out with the family. We ate A LOT of junk food - my sister and I decided that camping is just an excuse to eat a lot of good food. We also played a lot of "Settlers of Cataan" (or Settlers of Contention when Seth and I play together)- I think Seth won almost every game! And I got to read a book - The Thirteenth Tale by Diane Setterfield (it was pretty good). Colton LOVED playing with his cousins too! He just followed around after them, doing whatever they were doing. I think he's going to be sad when he wakes up tomorrow and they aren't here to play with.

Now that we're home it's time to do the laundry and adjust back to "normal" life once again. Seth's first day of school is tomorrow. I think I'm going to lay out his clothes for his first day - HA HA.

Isn't being with family just the best! Those are really cute pictures of Colton enjoying dirt - as every young child should!

That looks like you guys had such a blast. I love the pics of Colton in the mud...what a boy! We LOVE Settlers of Catan! It becomes very competitive amongst my siblings and our spouses. And camping is DEFINITELY all about the junk food! Nothing like S'mores baby! -Summer

Looks like you had fun Becky! We just went camping last weekend (just a night) and we love all the fun junk food that goes along with camping! Hope you get your camera fixed soon so we can see more pict.
