The Cottage Life

Hello summer!

When my cousin invited us to the cottage for the weekend. I knew I couldn't refuse!

I have fond memories as a little girl of summers spent at the cottage, swimming, and playing with my cousins.

I packed all the essentials, prepared dinner and headed off to Balsam Lake.

We arrived in the late afternoon. My cousins were already there with their families. In the front yard, there was an intense game of volleyball. Other family members lingered in the backyard or near the dock. The younger kids were playing in the sand.

As soon as we unloaded our gear, J.P wanted to go in the lake.

He didn't waste any time. Would you?

J.P and his cousin took a ride in the peddle boat. And swam and frolicked in the water!

In the evening, we all gathered around the fire pit, and roasted marshmallows and ate s'mores! It was definitely a s'more fest. I think Mr. O had one too many!

Fishing, karaoke, jamming on the guitar, eating and hanging out in the kitchen with my aunt and cousins.

There's nothing more I'd rather do than spend
the weekend with my family and relatives.

Oh, the cottage life!
