On Sunday we made our first trip of the year to the cottage. I love that we have a place like this to get away from the city for a day or a weekend. We packed some food for lunch, a couple games and diapers for Otis, and took off.
We had to measure the kids on the door. Otis has grown a whole foot in the past year! And, as always, it's fun to see the marks from the past. Grandpa as a two year old in 1947, Daddy as a two year old in 1980. And Ingrid as a two year old in 2008. Family history on this door!
The kids had fun just hanging out, getting into the croquet set, coloring, and going to the parks. It rained a bit so we made some muddy sand castles in the sandbox. Fun!
Yesterday we had a great morning, too. We took a nice long walk along Lake Michigan with the dog and enjoyed the sun and the sparkly lake. Have I mentioned how awesome it is living three blocks from Lake Michigan? Our walks are gorgeous, and the view from the park is amazing.
