Last weekend we spent time at the cottage with Adam and his friends. A bit scary thinking about all these young boys (and girls) and the trouble they could get into..... will the neighbors kick us out when the music is too loud, the fire too big and the nights last till wee hours of the morning???
Friday night started with unpacking, setting up camp and fishing. Brad did catch some pretty nice fish out of the river but he was on the catch and release plan.... I was upset I didn't get his picture of him and his fish and Adam says "mom he's not 10 anymore" Dang boys just don't understand
One of the fish was pretty good size, it bent his pole for quite a while as he tried to bring it in and then his line snapped.
Baby A and Easton had trusty skeeter nets that were a life saver, they were quite protected under them as the rest of us were eaten alive. The skeeter would disappear after like 9:00 so that was nice.
As I said boys will be boys. They got bored and started chopping down huge trees with an axe for firewood.
Of course you have to have sparklers
Even for the big boys..... well Skyler isn't really that big
Spent lots of hours right here.
John has this huge yard light that lights up the entire backyard. Now worries of sitting in the dark here.
Tried a fun sparkler shot but I guess I had the wrong settings..... we really didn't start them on fire.
More sparkler fun with Adam and Monica. Here they are lighting their sparklers
Then making a heart
And me combining the two photos together
Gotta love campfires..... this is what summer nights are for. Spending time with family and friends, making memories and sharing stories.
