A Little Getaway from the Real World

We had asked Taylor what she wanted to do this weekend and she wanted to go camping. Well we knew the weather was going to be a little crazy so Daniel and I decided to rent a cabin on the lake. It was nice and turned out to be a good choice since it stormed pretty good Friday night and was raining and cold on Saturday. Sunday turned out to be a nice sunny day though. The cabin was great. It had a full kitchen, living room, bathroom and two bedrooms.

Friday night Daniel's parents joined us for dinner and smores! We made a nice fire outside and roasted marshmellows while we visited.

As soon as we woke up on Saturday, Kennedy wanted to go outside of the deck and look at the "water." The view of the lake was great from the deck. First thing Taylor wanted to do was read her book (she read 3 whole chapter books that weekend). After we all got up and around, we headed out to the boat. It was so cold and raining but the girls wanted to fish. This was Kennedy's first time! We didn't stay out too long. We went back to the campground and fished from there. After that we just let the kids be kids and pick seashells, play in the gravel pile, and play at the little playground that was there.

Luckily the rain went away and we were able to build another fire outside and got to enjoy dinner under the stars. We spent the rest of Saturday playing Scrabble! Taylor was actually able to play with us and Kennedy pretended that she could play.

Sunday we just played around outside for a bit and then we spent the rest of the day on the boat. Fishing, cruisin' and hanging out.
