Lake Cabin Getaway
This year we decided to skip our regular Cannon Beach trip and try something new. We headed north of Seattle and boarded a ferry to San Juan Island for a little lake vacation.They are just too cute for words!My attempt at a selfie with Holly in the wind.Um… Attitude?Holly snaps a shot of the family.We arrive!The back porch, where I could sit and read if I didn’t have children.View of the lake from the back porch. It’s hard to make out the lake because it was so still at that moment that it reflected the trees like a mirror.Path down to our private picnic area.The girls get the loft room upstairs.We unloaded the car and headed straight for a swim.Practicing hand stands.The Internet connection was terrible (and no cell phone service!), but Rob kept trying.Our first evening we roasted hot dogs and marshmallows over the fire. Except for Holly who preferred Raman noodles.She put on her nightgown before dinner for some reason and yes, she looks like a character from Little House on the Prairie.S’mores! My favorite Holly quote from the vacation was “Mommy, when I was sneaking in the fridge to drink Daddy’s pop, I noticed that daddy had eaten a chocolate bar for the s’mores.” LOL!Here are two happy girls ready to go on a canoe ride with their daddy. I thought I might have a little time to myself while they were away, but they’d only been gone a short while when both girls came up the back path soaking wet, head to toe. Sure enough, all three went over in the canoe! Rob forgot to warn the girls about not leaning too far to one side. They were all in life jackets and they all can swim, so it was fine; just an unexpected surprise. Rob had them change and get right back in.They did not fall in on their second go.More swimming, more sand castles.Rob’s beautiful teepee fire.Campfire popcorn!The girls got to tie dye souvenir shirts.It was a wonderful little vacation. The girls are now big fans of swimming in a lake and can’t wait to go back.
