Another week in paradise

Ice cream after trip to town, afternoon catching dragonflies, big bonfire with fire roasted corn on the cob, and more galavanting about.

Beauty Lake

Today's destination lived up to it's name!

Beauty Lake

Another lovely destination. Kelton wanted to go out to Daddy's Rock so much that he undressed and waded across. I tossed Brennan across like a sack of potatoes. All had a great time.

Hike

Today we hike up far enough for cell reception. It's a Happy Birthday hike for W & B. They are three today!

Snow in July!

It's fast disappearing, but still a whole lot of snow for mid-July. The kiddos love digging. The snow plow came through this morning so now we can drive to our cabin. The kids were very excited to see the 'big digger'. I will miss the quiet, buried in the woods feeling, but I can't deny the convenience of driving our groceries to the cabin instead of towing the canoe behind the kayak.

Lake arrival

Arrival was adventuresome as promised. Road blocked by 2-4 ft of snow here and there. Had to portage selves an stuff by kayak, with car parked almost a mile away. Sweet isolation! Except we did meet a few new similarly crazy neighbors, all helpful well beyond mere politeness. Snow melting fast though!

Snowy summer cabin II

Here's the photo that failed to load before.

Kids at the cabin

Kelton loved looking at the snow covered well pump. Weston and Brennan love going out in the kayaks. Brennan is paddling on dry land with his Bjorn potty lashed onboard.

Snowy summer cabin

We made it to our snowy cabin. The car is still almost a mile away. The kiddos were great troopers hiking over the snow. With the help of kind cabin neighbors,‚Äč David kayaked all our stuff across the lake. It's unbelievably beautiful and quiet here.
