Oh, Canada!

*Sigh*  I love vacations.

We are back from Canada and sorely missing it already.  Our adorable, quaint little cabin.  The peaceful island all to ourselves.  Endless amounts of fresh air and lakeside scenery.  A little slice of perfection.

Our first morning began around 4AM - Doad likes an early start to the trip and the traffic is considerably... nonexistent at this hour.  We made it to Canada around lunch time and met up with M &  D at the dock. They had just finished grocery shopping and hadn't even been to the cabin yet, so we loaded up the boat and took off for the island.

It got a bit adventurous when we got to the island.  The lock box wouldn't open and we couldn't get a hold of the renter.  While we were waiting for a call back from the renter, the ladies got resourceful and made lunch for everyone.  We used barbecue tools for cutting open the lunch meat and slicing cheese, pretzel rods for spreading mayo, and a bowl and bottled water for rinsing the lettuce.

When we finished our front porch feast, the guy still hadn't called back so Doad got resourceful, found a ladder and found an open window on the second level.

Finally, we could unpack and settle in.  We spent a chill evening watching James Bond (Casino Royale) and eating grilled cheese and tomato soup.  A perfectly, lazy start to our vaca.

A, B, and The Cuteness arrived early the next morning.  I woke up to this adorable sight out on the dock.

Grammy and The Cuteness feeding the fishies.

 Finding Nemo is one of his favorites so he absolutely loved seeing the fishies all weekend.

The day was perfectly sunny so we decided to go out and explore on the boat while we could.

This is The Cuteness during a pre-nap energy crash.  Too cute.

Me and B

Our evening was again spent with James Bond (Skyfall this time), manicures and pedicures for B and me, and some snuggles from little nephew.

 It doesn't get much better than this.  :)
