Swimming in the lake
Going for walks
Playing games at night
Going on a boat ride.
Jon took this picture of his grandma (Gamma). I love it! She is so delightful to be around and she has great love for her grandchildren and great grandchildren.
The night of the campfire. The boys had their first smores and stuffed themselves silly with roasted marshmallows. Notice Ewan's puffy cheeks.
Graham tried really hard to eat pine cones. He thought they were tasty but I tried to convince him otherwise.
Celebrating Ewan's 5th birthday. It isn't until the end of the month but since we were all together as a family we celebrated it a little early. Mimi and the kids made the cake. I think it looks like stained glass.
Our family at the blueberry patch. I wore a sweatshirt because the mosquitoes and deer flies were terrible. I finally gave in and sprayed myself with bug spray--but I kept the sweatshirt on for extra protection even though I was sweaty.
Ewan at the blueberry patch. The patch is in a park area and the blueberries are wild and free. It was a little early in the season but we got lots of yummy berries to eat on our cereal in the morning.
Daddy and Graham in the lake. The water is pretty cold in the lake but Graham didn't seem to mind too much. We didn't keep him in for long periods of time but he liked splashing around.
This is Big Beefy. He was 18 3/4" and 3 lbs. I caught him with a worm (real). I knew I had a bite but I didn't think he was that big when I was reeling him in. He didn't fight much while I was bringing him in either. We were so excited though! There is nothing like catching a big fish!
All the cousins. This before a boat ride.
All the kids fishing in the boat with Jon and Mimi. Everyone caught something
(mostly rock bass) and had a great time.
