Barn 2013 post #1

We have been enjoying this past week at our grandparents'
cottage in Upstate New York!

All ready to leave!

A family tradition - running down the lane!

"The Barn"

Someone was a little chilly :)

Breakfast is my specialty

Goofy Rebecca

Ice cream at "The Shack" in Lynndonville

Cousin Paul and his buddy Caleb

Our cousin Paul is an excellent woodworker - he and Caleb like to work
on projects while we are at the Lake.

This year, Paul taught Caleb how to do some basic wood turning.

Caleb turning a plate...

...and a bowl


Ten kids chucking rocks in the lake - rollover!

Every year, we go out to breakfast at a little marina cafe nearby.

How many Buc-A-Roos can you find in the pictures below?

A boat among boats...

Another traditional family picture at Browns Berry Patch

The boys had a nice relaxing time shooting nearly every day

Nice grouping!
Believe it or not, we brought this target all the way from MI in our little trailer!

Just before we left on vacation, Melody got her learner's permit!

Dad and Melody ready for the first "official" drive

We always put on a little concert for our friends and family at the Lake.

We squeezed 45 people in to listen!

Conversation and cookies - a classic combination

More coming up in the next post about the many water activities! Stay tuned!
