We picked wildflowers and rocks, looked a bugs, and even spied some broken egg shells. For some reason, T Rex was most impressed with the broken egg shells.
This is the end of our cabin adventures. Here is T Rex's summation upon seeing his Nana, "There were no fish in the slimy lake and no uncle-berries* but there were mosquitoes and egg shells. It was not fun anymore after Grandma and Grandpa left."
Thank you, G & G for allowing us a get-away. Thanks to our kids for not getting any permanent injuries. Lastly, a huge thank you to T Rex Dad for all his help. It was so very much work being there with little kids. Quite the departure from our pre-kid days when we would go to the cabin and spend days just enjoying the calm and quiet and taking hikes and picking berries. However, I am very grateful to be in this place at this time with this man and these little kids. Sometimes a little trip like this puts all that in perspective.
*Translation - T Rex calls huckleberries "uncle-berries"
