Memorial Day Weekend

May 31, 2011 § Leave a comment

Here’s the thing about having an almost 2-year old. You make a lot of memories. I don’t mean that in the sentimental way that it sounds. More like, out of necessity you have to do a lot of stuff. Even including those (glorious) moments of “self-directed play,” each single day with a toddler tends to create a memory laundry list. So, this Memorial weekend recap is going to just be a laundry list of fond memories from our weekend at the cabin.

  • Watching the storm come in over the lake while (finally) working on our Christmas puzzle.
  • Eating oatmeal with fresh berries and nuts and yogurt and brown sugar.
  • Hearing Hiram holler through the screen porch, “Mama! Boat! Please!” and realizing he was asking for another ride in our canoe, Loonacy.
  • Paddling Loonacy as hard as I could and hearing Hiram’s sweet little voice, “Faster! Faster!”
  • Being the one to comfort Hike when he realized what “faster” could actually mean on a speedboat like Breezer.
  • Soaking up the (hot!) sun on Breezer with Brad during nap time.
  • Watching Hiram play in the sand.
  • Playing “fetch” with Hiram who was pretending to be a dog.
  • Waking up at 4 in the morning to the sound of rain on our cabin’s tin roof and realizing I had time to fall back asleep.
  • “Skipping” (a.k.a. galloping) down the gravel road on a walk with Hike and Giki.
  • Watching my husband and my son wrestle until they both had soggy heads—despite their short hair.
  • Watching my dad and my son “roar” at each other like lions.
  • Seeing Lady Slippers.

Here are a few photos from the weekend too
