Counting down

Gavin and I are counting down until Friday…when we leave for the cabin and we’ll be there for 10 whole days. (Casey is meeting up with us a few days later)

I can’t wait.

To the right of this picture is a large, empty lot where my Grandpa’s cabin used to stand. When he passed away we tore it out and now we use it for a huge fire pit, a place to play games, etc. Both lots are right on the water and I cannot wait to go for a dip in the lake!

It’s a three hour drive and we’ve learned that it’s the easiest to wait until the evening hours to hit the road. That way we can get Gav’s treatments done before we leave, we miss the Twin Cities rush hour, can eat dinner on the road, and Gavin usually falls asleep not long into the trip. The only problem with this? Once we arrive, he wakes up and doesn’t want to fall asleep until he gets some play time in :) But being up late is much better than listening to a crabby toddler whine for three straight hours!

The last weekend in July is our annual family reunion for my mom’s side. It will be the first time that my cousin & her husband will get to meet Gavin! They were students at Columbia, have finally graduated (with multiple degrees apiece) and now have the free time to head out to Northern Minnesota!

But don’t worry bloggy friends, even though we don’t have internet access there, I’ve “prepared” some posts ahead of time (including Flash Me! Friday!) that will appear even while we’re gone…gotta love technology!

  4. 一個人的際遇在第一次總是最深刻的,有時候甚至會讓人的心變成永遠的絕緣。............................................................
