the boys woke us up ready to tackle the day with their cousins. they were so excited that the “family sleepover” was under way. we went to down, had breakfast and when the littles went off to play in the game loft with their beloved nana, nelson and i snuck in a mini coffee date overlooking the lake.

it only took a few minutes before the kids realized that there were adults by the lake and despite the cold temperatures, they came on down to play on the lawn, at the beach and to skip some stones on the water. soon enough, nelson deemed it necessary to go into the open water in the kayak and everyone else couldn’t wait to get a turn….except for me. it was freezing! my brother-in-law and nelson took over pushing the kiddies in the kayak parallel to the shore while all the other kiddies kept the toes wet in the lake.

later on in the evening, the cold weather seemed perfect for a little fire on the beach. after diner we got into our sweaters, brought along our blankets and all the fixings for some s’mores. it was the perfect first bonfire, not just for the kids but for me too. brandon fell asleep in my arms, jonathan in nelson’s and the adults enjoyed talking the night away while adding more wood to the flames…
