Diabetes sucks but I refuse to let it steal our joy before we knew.....
June 24th, 2016
The week marked for our family vacation at the cabin with the kids and grandkids.
We had a fun-filled 4 days before Carson (our grandson)
became ill and was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes while at the cabin.
That blog will come later, but for now
I choose "JOY" and great memories in the 4 days before everything changed....
We had a wonderful time as a family, swimming, boating, laughing,
playing games and making memories.
Carson driving the boat with Grandpa
Uncle Brice and Audrey always up to their shananaghans,
while uncle Gavin encourages Scarlett to watch.
Playing in the sand
Scarlett was not about to let go of Auntie Brie
They love their Uncle Gavin
We ventured over to our beloved Camp "Pine Haven"
just around the bend from our cabin. Playing Carpetball
all 3 grands swinging, I love this one.

I love fishing off the dock
Carson loved letting the water hit his hand
Brianna & Audrey loved tubing together

Miss Audrey caught a big one!

This girl LOVES the water (Audrey)
Cousins, I love these three so much!!!
She loved playing in the sand (Scarlett)
Brice and Scarlett out for a Kayak ride
and you cant be together at the cabin without some jams
I love our family like no other,
we are blessed to have each other, and I'm glad we were together to support each other
when we got the news of Carson's diabetes.
We are missing Chris (carson's daddy) in this photo,
but he was with us through phone calls and "facetime" (in Rochester)
We are thankful for technology.
Thanks for hanging in there through all the photo's....
see, we really did have a lot of fun.
Update to follow on the not-so-happy part of our vacation... stay tuned
