at the cottage for an extended 2 - 4 ....

Isn't it nice to get away?
We just got back from a wonderful 6 day getaway to our cottage in Oliphant (between Wiarton and Sauble Beach). The weather was absolutely outstanding. I packed sweaters and trackpants and for the first time that I can remember we didn't use them at all! With the exception of a wet, gloomy Saturday the weather was all sunshine and warmth.

The boys were totally in their element there. Dirt, water, bugs (check out our ever so fashionable bug hats), sand and frogs. Funny, sad story about one frog that Wyatt caught. He was holding it ever so gently as he carried it up the cottage steps to show me. The frog was wriggling around and jumped right out of his hands and into....his dad's steaming hot cup of coffee!! Wyatt and Holden were devastated and I kept trying to explain that it was an accident. Poor froggy, boiled to death in a cup of Timmie's.

after Saturday the bugs were almost completely gone

Wyatt was completely obsessed with mud. These pics were taken at 7 pm, still warm and beautiful!

Holden kept taking running leaps into the water. He LOVED it! The water is super clear and shallow where we are so it's perfect for the boys (all sand, no rocks).

We spent our days at the beach in water that felt warmer than it did all summer last year. I hope this is the way all the weekends will be this year.

Hope you had a wonderful long weekend too!

~ oh and I did manage to get some scrapbooking done too but you'll have to wait a few days to see those photos!

It looks like a great time! One question - did your hubby drink the coffee after the frog took a dive? (lol)

So jealous! Looks like you had a blast. I can't wait until we go to the cottage we rent. It is always so much fun and I come home with hundreds of photo to scrapbook!
