Our trip to NY was just perfect, as always. I love it so much. We headed up the week before Labor Day this year because Noah started school the Tuesday after the holiday. It was the perfect week to be there. They weather was great, and there was a lot of "quiet" time, so the kids and I were able to spend good quality time with my aunts, cousins and Grandma. Grandma even joined in a few games of Go Fish with us. The boys love George and Michaela immensely, so their presence was also a special treat!
The boys got right in the (cold) lake and enjoyed swimming to the raft like old pros. They loved to go on the kayak, fish with Paka, play with George and their other cousins. Grandma was up and about a ton this year...she even got in the lake a few times! Levi was perfect (as usual) and particularly loved taking naps in his swing outside. My family is super special to me and this time is such a necessity for my spirit. I couldn't ask for a better family and look forward to my favorite trip again next year!

The whole crew enjoying the water. We have been going to the cottage for over 20 years, but this was my Uncle Frank's first time to the raft!
I love the smile on her face!
It's easy to nap at the cottage. If you know my dad, you know he really was asleep!
