Cabin Livin'

Last weekend my brother and I drove up to our cabin to spend time with our parents. Mom and Popp were already up there for a week on their vacation and Anthony and I wanted to make sure they ended their vacation with a bang.

We got up there on Friday night and had a fire--complete with color fire changing color packets!

On Saturday Anthony and I laid around in the sun and played with Caesar while my Mom gardened (she really loves that doesn't she??) and Popp watched from a distance.
As you can see from above sitting at the end of the pier while playing with Caesar can be a little wet...and sandy; thus Popp stayed quite a ways away. 

After dinner Anthony and I decided take lil' walk. 
Well, more like I walked and Anthony played around on my long board. I taught him little tricks about staying on the board and what not.
And while he played around, I took photos of my feet.

We ended up at the ice cream shop--well, cabin more like.
Isn't it gorgeous?!

The ice cream was delicious.
Cotton candy, mint chocolate chip, and chocolate fudge almond.
Can you tell we couldn't make up our minds??

The rest of the weekend we kind of just bummed around and took photos. We hung out with Mom and Popp while they played cards--Mom always wins by-the-way.
She cheats.
At least that's what Popp says.

It was amazing this weekend how calm I was. Going to the cabin was such a stress reliever. I've been a little tense lately because at work we're finishing up enrollment for the school year and it can get pretty crazy. 

It was really nice not having cellphone service so I never had to worry about emails. It's so nice being disconnected sometimes.
Anthony didn't agree...As you can see he found a cellphone-service-sweet-spot on the deck...

I also rekindled my flame with Diet Coke. 
It's a problem.

We ended the weekend by picking some flowers and taking them to gram's grave on the way home. 
I try to visit her every time I go up north because I just don't get up there as often as I would like.

The weekend was definitely much needed and SO relaxing.

How did you spend your weekend?


  1. This pretty much looks like perfection - sometimes nothing but family time will make do!

  2. Wow looks like a little piece of heaven! I love your pooch!! Such a cutey.
