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

Hemmer Cabin vacation 2017 Part #2 "Activites on the lake"

We spend a lot of time on the lake here at the cabin. 
The kids love swimming and playing in the sand!
We have a lovely beach and lots of sand toys so they could play for hours and hours.

"Fishing with Grandma" is another thing that I especially love to do with my grands
I love to teach them to be patient for the bite. 
They are good listeners and had some luck this year.
Even little Scarlett caught a sunny.

I love this little squatter.... He caught 2 fish his last morning at the cabin.

Then there's just plain goofing off by young and old(er)

 Audrey jumping off the end of the dock.

 Lewin's fist summer at the cabin, he loves hanging out with Grandpa.

 Sweet Scarlett

Our boat is big enough to accommodate all 10 of us.

 Here are a few bonus shots of our family at the lake...

Hope you enjoyed our little adventure at the lake. 
It was such a great time filled with memories, and fun-filled days that we will always cherish.
