Island Park

Here is the cabin we rented. I have to say that our accommodations were quite nice. The cabin was really nice and had lots of room for the kids to play. Tim and I were especially pleased with our room as we were able to to stay in the big master bedroom. I guess having two kids in pack and plays has it's occasional perks. Honestly Tim and I felt a little weird having this huge room to ourselves, but we all slept great and that makes a big difference. We didn't spend a lot of time at the cabin during the day but when we were there we spent most of our time playing games. We played some board games, but the family favorite was playing Mario Kart against each other on the DS's. One of the funniest moments of the trip came while playing Imaginiff. There was a question about Marlene and which movie would be most representative of her life. Marlene had made the comment that everyone was sure to get this one right. Out of the four choices, everyone picked Love Story except Madison. She had picked the Godfather. We immediately all started laughing thinking about Marlene living a mobster lifestyle. Well Madison is 8 and doesn't know what that movie is about. She just saw the word God in the title and assumed that was the movie Tim's mom was talking about. If you know Tim's mom at all, you know she is a very spiritual person. It was really quite funny!

Friday morning we took a short drive over to Big Springs. We all had a good time there, and the kids especially had a good time feeding the fish.


Here are a few of the pictures that Tim took of the Lake that was right outside the cabin. Madison and Kayla had a blast playing around the water catching crawdads and frogs.

Hopefuly Maddi will understand one day why were laughing and realize it wasn't because we were making fun of her!!! It was a priceless and cute moment! Had so much fun, even though I slept in a hot,closterphobic room the size of the closet in your master suite, with 5 other people on a bottom of a squecky bunkbed that was harder than the floor! The other 2 nights on the couch weren't near as bad,so don't feel too,bad! One day you will be in the bunkbed room and Dave and I will have the nice room!! LOL!!!!! Can't wait for more memories and fun times next year!!!! We need to write a book of our favorite vacation stories. (The good, the bad, and the ugly!!! HAHA!!!!)
