Come to the Cabin

You might feel like you did after you look at all the pictures I can't seem narrow down any further.  I think I have 150 just from this weekend.

We headed off in our un-airconditioned truck.  Lots of happiness anyhow.

Although its about a 2 1/2 hour drive, this year it seems to take us a minimum of 4.  We arrived for a very late supper.  Some of us bright eyed and bushy tailed...
Some of us not so much.  Not even the smell of bacon would wake up this girl.

So happy to be at the cabin, and especially happy to arrive and unpack before this blew in...

Some of our crew was worried this would put a damper on the outdoor plans.  I secretly thought a cozy weekend with lots of books, games, and of course knitting, sounded just fine.

The next morning was beautiful - calm, cloudy, and warm.  And I was not disappointed to enjoy these moments.

Although we got the fishing crew out kind of late to have much success, thankfully we got one good sized one to be excited about for supper.

The thought has crossed my mind that we should get a second bike, which I don't think we will, but it would be nice.  However, Kellen and I had a great hike (although this mama was a little nervous the whole time about bears).  We had a whole lot more interesting things to report when we got back to the cabin.

Did I mention Neve was an excellent little hiker also?

I now have a wrap I would like to sell.  I realized I had not brought a sling, wrap or carrier for Neve on the way up, so we stopped at Fabricland where there was luckily a 50% sale going on (otherwise it would have been $80 for 4m of cotton knit!  And I would have likely been without a carrier for Neve!)  They were so helpful and cut the material down the middle for me - anyone want a red one like I am wearing?? $20!

These are likely my 2 favorite moments from the weekend:

 Neve was so proud to be hanging out with her big brother on the porch.
And, I got some knitting time on the porch!

Okay, I shouldn't have tried to pick favorite moments, there really were too many.  This was another memorable moment - I realized this man has really relaxed.  Everyone was unhappy (well, mostly Neve) on the drive home (even though we had already had 3 breaks) and when I suggested we find a park at the next town, he did.  With no complaining about the trip home that keep seeming to get longer and longer.  And, he seemed to really enjoy it.  I think my heart swelled watching him play like a kid with them. 

I hope you had a fabulous weekend also!

Looks like a treasured weekend. Love the little baby in the lifejacket- that is so cool.
