I'm reliving life with kids again!
The Cottage is alive with constant chatter, motion, hungry children, and sweet laughter.
Last Monday we picked up our 7 year old niece Jersti, and her 5 year old brother, Kale on our way through Chicago and brought them back to MN with us.
We had them all to ourselves to
until Thursday evening
when their momma, poppa and big sister and brother arrived at The Cottage
They came with their boat too.
so we took them to Lake Pepin in Lake City
the birthplace of water skiing
and we loved on them there too
and enjoyed watching the water ski show they provided
and savored moments with little ones that
we know grow up WAY too fast
while we were out on the lake we happened to see friends we have known for over 25 years....back to pre-children days!
they didn't see us
-- so I creeped on them with the telephoto
hoping to surprise them later by sending these photos
Turns out they had just pulled out their boat before us
so I warned them of my creeping
which was minimal
We have the kids and their parents here all this week too -- they are vacationing at The Cottage!
The motion is non-stop -- and I don't mind a dadgum bit!
