Cabin life with friends

This weekend was a good one! We were able to head north to the cabin and have our friends join us. Joe’s parents are out of town so they were generous enough to let us host our friends and their 3 little boys.


We headed to the cabin after Joe got home from work. We got up there before Liam’s bedtime so we were able to hang out for a little while before Liam went to bed.

After Liam went to bed our friends arrived. We had a fire and roasted marshmallows for s’mores. We also lit some sparklers before the kiddos headed to bed.


The adults stayed up chatting for a while and then went to bed too (much later than my normal bedtime).


It was so cute to watch Liam see his little friend Rory in the morning. (Rory is our friends’ youngest child and he is only 7 weeks younger than Liam). They looked so cute in their jammies.


The kids spent some time playing outside in the morning. We spent some time down by the lake too.


After Liam’s morning nap we went out on the pontoon. It’s always fun to take the pontoon out on the lake and relax.

Brody (the oldest child) took a turn driving the pontoon. He loved it and was so focused! I had a hard time getting him to look at the camera because he was so worried about keeping an eye on where he was driving. Still I was able to get a great picture of him!


We spent the rest of the evening outside playing again. Liam spent some time in the kiddie pool before his afternoon nap.

Then around 6 the weather started to turn on us. We lost power around 7 which was perfect for the kids’ bedtime.

The adults then had some beverages and played cards by candle light until the power came back on around 9:20. We played blackball which is super fun if you haven’t played it!


The weather was beautiful again! We headed to breakfast in the morning and then spent more time outside.


We took the pontoon out to be sandbar and let the kids and dads swim for a little while.

Then it was time to clean up, pack up, and head home.

We made it home around 5. We gave Liam dinner, played for a little while, had bath time, and then it was time for him to go to bed.


Joe and I then relaxed for a little while and then headed to bed too.

I hope you had a great weekend. We had so much fun and can’t wait to get Liam and Rory together again!
