Grandpa's Cabin

We took the boys out to my dad's cabin and lake on Saturday since the weather was so beautiful. My dad, and Matt & Beth and the kids met us there for a a lot of fun. Unfortunately my mom had to work all weekend so she had to miss out on the fun. I know dad originally bought it as hunting ground but we've made it into a fun getaway for the family too. We always have fun out there and build many memories that I know the boys will carry with them. I hope someday they will all bring their families out there.

Noah is trying out Blake's little bow and arrow with some tips from Grandpa.

Aunt Beth is helping Aiden shoot the bow. Look at that arrow in action!
Grandpa took Ellie on a Gator ride and she fell asleep on him. I think he enjoyed his snuggling time with her.
Noah blowing some bubbles. (photo from Aunt Beth-thanks!)
Aunt Beth spent quite awhile blowing bubbles for the little guys and Ty and Aiden were so cute running around popping them. Just listening to them giggle was so cute.

Aiden helped himself to some of Ellie's treats. I think she's asking him to give her some!
Drew gave the kayak a try out on the lake. All the boys seemed to have fun on it. We borrowed it from a friend to try.
Todd took Ty and Aiden on a kayak ride and let them take turns paddling.
Aiden eventually jumped ship and did some more swimming.

My picture didn't turn out too well---this one is Beth's. How cute is that?? Grandpa holding up Ellie as the sun sets in the background. It's really a beautiful picture but the funny story behind it is that we were trying to recreate the scene in the Lion King where little Simba is presented to the herd. For some reason, the sun setting reminded us all of that movie.

I was playing around with Scrapblog again and came up with this. Nothing too exciting but it's a cute way to post pictures from the weekend.
