A Weekend of Firsts

This was Wesley's first trip ever to the cabin. He was a little scared by the unfamiliarity of it when we got there Friday night, but he settled down and had a great time the rest of the weekend. He really liked the swing. No, he's not related to Aunt Jemima - I forgot his hat (bad mom) so he had to wear a rag on his head to protect his little scalp.

Okay, so this wasn't a first, but I had to include it since Jack spent the majority of his cabin time (he literally spent three hours on the beach Saturday morning) directing the construction crew you see below.

The crew chief: he takes his job very seriously.

There were a lot of firsts for Jack (he just didn't spend much time doing them). He got an actual ride on the buggy (the 4-wheeler for those of you who aren't intimately familiar with Jack's world). Up until this point he had to just get on and pretend. This year he actually got to go on a ride with Sean. He also went fishing for the first time. He didn't catch anything and got bored with it pretty fast. He liked the worms. He got to drive the boat by himself for the first time too (maybe because his arms are finally long enough to reach the steering wheel when he sits in the captain's chair). Also a job he took very seriously.
It was our first experience with sleeping in the back bedroom with 4 people. It was a little crowded, but manageable. I know how to pack for next time now. Aunt Linda and Uncle Bob were in MN for a couple weeks and wanted to spend some time at the lake. We headed up their first weekend there to visit, celebrate my mom's birthday and celebrate Father's Day. We had a fun time and are looking forward to their next visit.

I love the picture of Jack and his "diggers". He's so serious!

Classic Wesley!

I was just thinking that the picture of the trucks would be an awesome desktop background!

Soooo cute! But I personally think that you should have stopped at Treasure City and purchased a
do-rag (sp?) for Wes :)
