A Weekend at the Cottage in Pictures June 26, 2013

We spent a great long weekend at my parent’s cottage. We had a few rough bumps with sleep for Henry and Freddy was going through a bit of a growth spurt so he was eating a lot more. Oh and don’t get me started on the mosquitoes but overall it was a great vacation. Best part, Chris was home on Friday and Monday, so that’s two days less of solo parenting! 🙂

I picked up some strawberries on the way up to the cottage. It's pretty much the only thing Henry wanted to eat.

My parents have this huge wall to wall shower at the cottage. It was Henry's favourite place to hang out.

Like every prisoner, yard time is mandatory... (yeah the deck is sealed off so that little toddlers can't run down to the water on their own)
