This year we decided to head up to Cascade Lake for the Limb family reunion. This is where I grew up going to family reunions so it is a very special place to me. Normally, this is an extended family reunion, but not this time. Everything about it was perfect. (except Toby not being there)
We played on the canoes and Zeke and Porter both loved going for rides. By the end of the week, they both had to have a paddle in their hand for each ride.
Porter only wanted to ride on the jet ski with Popi. Nobody else could convince him to ride with them. He got so brave that he left Popi spin cookies with him.
Zeke wanted to drive whenever he was riding. And of course he didn't care who took him on a ride as long as he got lots of turns.
Porter had lots of fun with his favorite red headed cousin, Roxie. They were so cute together.
Zeke had fun building sandcastles, but spent most of his time in the water. He was a fish!
My mom being in the water so much was the biggest surprise. She normally hates being in water that isn't as warm as a bathtub, but this time she was the first one in!
Zeke gave up a couple hours of swimming to go fishing with Popi. That should tell you how excited he was to go fishing. He caught a fish and Popi caught 2.
Zeke would start way back at the beginning of the dock in the sand, run all the way to the end, yell cannonball, and jump in. It was so funny to watch. Then he would swim back to shore and start all over again.
Zeke went on a tube ride so I asked Porter if he wanted to go on one with me. He didn't want to go with me, he wanted to go with Zeke. They loved it!
Zeke thought he was so cool pulling Porter around in the tube. I was actually pretty impressed that he could swim well enough to pull him anywhere.
I know all I have is pictures of us playing at the lake. That was probably our favorite part, but we also had fun playing Kubb, ladder golf and all kinds of other games at night. I haven't laughed that hard in a long time.
