A mix of photography, recipes, personal thoughts, faith, and lots of family stuff, but not necessarily in that order.

Hemmer Cabin vacation 2017 Part #1

This is the second full season owning our cabin on Long lake in Northern Minnesota. 
We have a lot of history on this lake spanning 3 generations. 
Rick and I are just so thankful and blessed to have this little cabin on the lake.

We recently spent time with out kids and grand kids during our 2nd annual 
Hemmer family vacation at the cabin. 
I have many photo's to share and 2 blog posts to cover it all.

Our DIL Jenny, hanging out by the water

 Love this photo of Jenny & Brie on the kitchen floor with their girls
Not sure why the kitchen floor.


Girl cousins looking at books

Lewin loves to hear Uncle Gavin play

 This year the county fair was going on during our week at the cabin...
The best part was the made-fresh French fries homegrown right here in Park rapids

 Riding in the "cars"

Lewin had a bath in the kitchen sink, all fresh and clean!

 After the kids are in bed...we play games.  (Akward poses)

 Love these three

 Carson and buddy Uncle Gavin

a little screen time.... on Uncle Gavin, ha

Down town Park Rapids is the best.... we always have a day in town to browse the stores
 and visit the candy store.

 Everyone helps, with meals and clean up
This night was Brianna and her daddy.

 Playing with barbies in the water

Saying goodbye is the hardest, this year uncle Gavin went first.

 Be sure to look down below for my 2nd post or click here to see how much fun we have 
on the beach and in water.


  1. What beautiful memories you are building with your family, Jackie. The fair, campfires, board games, swing time...

    1. It at times seemed like a blur...it goes so fast, but the memories will remain!

    2. For sure...and every summer your littles will anticipate their time at the lake with extended family.
