Memorial Day Weekend

We had beautiful Memorial weekend weather, with the exception of a bit of rain here and there.  Mike and Sophia spent Friday through Monday at Karen and Tom’s cabin.  Sebastian and I had to cut our trip short and went Saturday morning through Sunday evening.  Baseball practice trumped cabin time.

I took photos only on Sunday, but did capture a little bit of the Northwoods and some cabin fun.

There were many, many tiger swallowtail butterflies in the air and on the ground over the weekend.  Titus enjoyed chasing them.  He never did catch any though.

Titus also enjoyed playing fetch in the water.  We threw sticks and a tennis ball in the shallow water as we are still not certain of his swimming abilities.

Mike, Titus and I took a walk and enjoyed the all of the thing growing along the roadside.

The air temperatures were hot enough to offset the cold lake water.  Kayaking, paddle boarding, tubing, knee boarding and jet skiing were some of the many things the kids enjoyed – thanks Uncle Sean & Aunt Melissa!  We also had a nice pontoon ride thanks to Karen and Tom.

And perhaps my favorite photo of the weekend…

I can’t forget to mention the wonderful deep fried turkey dinner with all of the fixings made by Karen and Tom to celebrate a belated birthday for Melissa and an early birthday for me.  There was also a yummy cake to top it off!

Light Painting

We had a little fun with sparklers on the 4th of July.  Using a long exposure on the camera, we created the images below.

Sophia tried it out first.

Next, Ella gave it a try.

I think we did pretty well given it was our first time. 🙂
