Day 4: Spiders, turtles and beer - oh my!

What a delight to be eased out of your slumber by such a variety of bird songs.  I cracked one eyeball open enough to see the loon feeding on the lake.  That was enough to get me out of bed and into my lawn chair with of cup of coffee.

Micha and the boys made a few trips to Grandma and Grandpa's cabin to get the kayaks and Puffin II (the yellow Optimist sailboat).  Grandpa had to courageously get the boats out of the spidery corner because Alex is not a friend of spiders.

The sunken log has a big piece of re-bar sticking out of it as the protective wood did not survive the year so it was off to the cabin to use the drill-press to form a new safety guard.  Dominic enjoyed pounding the new piece on with the hatchet while in the kayak.

Afternoon soccer had to pause while the local deer made their way nibbling through the field.

The rest of the day was all about swimming, hamburgers, turtle watching, fishing and the boys eating chips around the campfire.

Alex was definitely in his happy place eating chips right out of the family-sized bag by the fire.

Odd ball quote of the day by Dominic:  "Grandma is here, get the beer!"

I guess that just sounded nice to Dominic because Grandma does not drink beer :).

A good tree to hang the TRX from.
Mind that tall thistle to the right and the gapping 'critter hole'
at the base though. 

We pause this game to allow the deer to nibble on by. 

Someone is in your spot, Renata!

An evening turtle sighting. 

Each time a fish would jump, Alex would point out the location and
Dominic would cast his line in that direction.
No luck :(.
