The next morning (Saturday July 5th), we got up and went over to the land!
Nana and Finn had some quality time together....
The girls took Daddy out for a boat ride!
I got to go on one too! This was supposed to be our romantic boat ride.....
The girls showed Daddy all their new lake skills...
Finn watched from the land :) Such a cute little grin he has....
Daddy tried kayaking, but didn't feel too safe.....
So, he turned right around and came back...
Sophie and Mesa enjoy being off leash and the land, and they just love camping.
Love this pic of Mr Finn.....he is a little man full of expressions!
Went inside the camper for a quick feed!!!
Next, into town to meet up with everyone for breakfast at Bohemian Ovens. Yummy yummy!!!!
Then, onto Chippewa Falls to go to Irvine park to see some animals.
Then, back to the cabin! Uncle Josh took me and Liv fishing!!!!!
It was a success! We only caught this one, but it was worth it :)
Olivia was terrified of the fish, and wanted nothing to do with it!
Back to the land for some pizza and smores!
and some family pics!
The girls had to take Uncle Josh out for a boat ride to show him what they learned.
After that, we went back to the cabin, and they all went out on the pontoon for a fireworks show.
Next morning, we got up bright and early to head home. The man who we rented the cabin from had his grandson Hudson visiting, and Olivia and he made quick friends ;)
Back in the car and on our way home......it took 7 hours......7 loooooong hours....
But we made it, over 1,000 miles later. Thankful for a fun time for sure!
Thursday morning, on our way to Bloomer! Nana Dianne got to be a part of our traveling circus this time! Bapa was nice enough to let Winnie ride with him and his dogs!
3 stops later (yes, we stopped 3 times in a 2.5 hour drive) we were in Bloomer! Time to go and see Uncle Josh, Aunt Ellie and baby Grady!!!! :)
Grady is 6 weeks younger than Finn, and we hadn't met him yet!!! So great!!!!
After a quick hello, Nana and Bapa took us to "check in" to our cabin! We loved the view for sure!
Nana and Bapa took the girls to their land, and they taught them how to paddleboat, kayak and drive the motor on the boat!!!
We had a nice supper back at the cabin with the whole family! Lots of laughter and fun!
And the night wouldn't be complete without a campfire at Nana and Bapa's land :)
Avery and Olivia enjoyed sleeping over in the camper!
Avery and Sophie.
The next morning, Uncle Josh and Daddy went golfing, and we all went to Nana and Bapa's land!
Avery and Livie took me for a ride in the boat! They are such great drivers!
Winnie wasn't left out from the fun at all....
We went into town and met up with Aunt Ellie and Grady! We went on a walk over to the middle school where she works!
She accidentally let off some alarm that caused the police officer to come over to check things out ;) Luckily it was a small town, and just a couple laughs later, and we were good to go!
We think she is the best teacher in Bloomer!
A little break in the day, so Finn and Winnie and I got some sun!
Nana and Bapa took Avery and Livie to a campground pool, which I heard was pretty chilly!
Supper at the campground! It was Friday Night fish fry! So delicious!!!
Livie did her own hair, and loved this blue slushie!
Avery wasn't fond of the long wait for her food.....
Neither was Liv.....
Avery wasn't sure what to think of the menu choices.....
Little Grady just LOVES to eat! It is so fun to watch him gobble up whatever is given to him! Finn could take a few lessons from him!!!
Finn looks like he's 2 in this pic......can't believe how grown up he looks!
Back to the cabin! They boys had on their matching 4th of July outfits from Nana!
My brother and I, with our new little baby boys!
All the kiddos!
Nana and Bapa with their grandkids (this pic will expire in November, and Ellie is having #2!!!)
Yes, he is quite the character....
