Cottaging with friends

Definitely time to catch up! We didn't know it at the time, but our weekend at the cottage with friends was likely our last time there this summer. The weather wasn't great, but we managed to fit in time at the beach and on the boat, and made delicious campfire cones, plus we spent lots of time inside reading and playing games. J also got some really great wind for windsurfing.. enough that his hands were raw.

As always it's an adventure when trying to get 4 kids to sleep in one room, but it went well. Better than last year anyway! Love spending time with our friends.

Swimming but only for those brave enough.

It wouldn't be the cottage without some tears.
Let me just quickly tell you about campfire cones because they are pretty much the most amazing thing since sliced bread. Instead of roasting a marshmallow to make a smore, you take mini marshmallows and chocolate chips and put them in a waffl cone. The whole thing gets wrapped in tin foil and put in the fire. After a few minutes you take it out, unwrap it, and enjoy the gooiest goodness ever created.

I'm not big on smores but I couldn't get enough of the campfire cones. So good! Can't wait for next year.
