Cabin Trip 2011

We spent a long weekend in July at my family’s cabin in Pinecrest.  The girls and I rode up with my parents on Wednesday and we met my brother, sister-in-law and niece there.  Scott joined us on Friday. 

The girls were so happy to be together again

You can’t really see it in this picture but just above Caty’s head there is a pink plastic fish.  My brother, Todd, had taken Riley’s fishing pole and cast it to it was up over a branch.  He’s lower the fish so they’d chase it, then pull it back up.  They loved it and giggled like crazy

Joined by Michelle and Cheri (Furner) – both of our families have been coming up to Pinecrest our whole lives but it wasn’t until 2-3 years ago that we realized it.  Cheri and I were in the same class in high school and Michelle and Todd as well.  This summer was the first time we all ended up being in Pinecrest at the same time.  They, along with their families, came and joined us for drinks.  Fun times!!

Family picture time – I haven’t announced anything but look at my sister-in-law’s tiny little baby bump.  They will be welcoming girl #2 in early November.  Girls all around for our family!

Such a great couple of days at the cabin.  We always love coming up here and look forward to next summers trip.
