Our Cabin Vacation

The whole summer I had been wanting to go up to the cabin with the family and just relax. So the week before school started I took the kids up there. The first part of the week we had D-dawg and my mom up with us. On the trip up we ran into a cloud it was pretty awesome and the kids were in awe. It was raining buckets when we arrived so we stopped off for a Hot N Ready from Little Ceasars, and enjoyed the night in the warm cabin. The next day was sooo cool because of the rain, the kids played outside and joined forces with the kids next door. For the next couple of nights we tried to do smores but every time we made it up to the fire pit it started raining and wet wood and fire don't really work. We did do it a couple of nights though, luckily my mom was there she was a master at starting fire. I know I couldn't have done it with out here .

She liked the smores but thought they were too much work so she decided to just skip right to stuffing a marshmallow into her mouth.
Jackson loved to make roasted marshmallows for everyone. He was pretty good at it.
This is the little fire pit they designed by rolling logs over to sit on.
during the trip whenever the kids wanted to earn a treat they had to pick up 20 pieces of trash. Well they earned a lot of treats, I believe in the first 2 days they each picked up a 100 pieces. It was slim pickings at the end of the week, but when we left that place was Spotless! On Monday D and my mom headed back, and then the next group arrived, Colin and his family. Presley was so excited about them, she LOVES babies and couldn't get enough of little Noah. The weather continued to be great. Raining at night and the day cool. Colin showed us how to work the quads and we had a lot of fun doing that.
A couple of days later Colin's family left and up came the Reynolds. More kids yea! We had a blast with smores and quads. They only bad thing was the first night they got there we were about to make dinner when the power went out. It was only for about an hour but I swear I was about ready to pack up and leave, I was not prepared. Right in the middle of cereal for dinner they came back on, luckily since I figured they were wishing they hadn't come up. Luckily the Reynolds are troopers and can handle a little "camping"- me not so much. Steve was supposed to come up and meet us but last minute could not, so unfortunately we went the whole week without seeing him, luckily we had plenty of company. During the Reynolds stay we had a couple of more mishaps, clogged toilet, burned finger but it was still a great time.

I can't wait till next summer, hopefully Steve will be able to come up and I can stay longer.
