We just got back from a sun-filled week at my in-law's cottage with the entire family. Normally, we fit the entire clan in a mere 1200 sq ft . . . but this year a new cottage was built and we had two cottages to spread out in.
We had a fantastic time canoeing and kayaking, games on the beach, cliff jumping, playing on the lilly pad, exploring nearby islands.
And, while the adults relaxed on the beach, the kids spent endless hours finding sea creatures . . . and acting silly. In the evenings, we spent more time on the beach and in boats . . . and of course had campfires with S'mores!
