The perfect weekend...

I spent the weekend up north at my parents' cabin on Battle Lake. Saturday was one of the most perfect days - the sun was shining, the lake was like glass, and I was surrounded by my family. All 4 nephews were present so I had fun hanging out with them... and took a TON of pictures!!

The day was spent relaxing in front of the cabin,

watching Dad try to master parasailing (or whatever this thing is called!)

eating delicious BBQ courtesy of Chad & Kevin, the bbq pros,

watching Andrew, Kolin, and James play in the water

and capturing some great pictures of Matthew, whose name has now been unofficially shortened to Matty. It just seems so fitting for him!

We also celebrated James's 4th birthday! Hard to believe he's already been in our lives for 4 years!

The only thing that could have possibly made the weekend better would have been if Abby & Ryan could have been there. They were there in spirit, though!
As a result of the beautiful weather & picture taking, I didn't get much reading done...
