Home away from home
We have moved into our summer home! It took a lot of work and a lot of help. Thanks to Luke for helping getting the truck packed and my mom and dad for the unpacking, setting up, and watching the kids! We had a garage full of stuff, so we rented a 24 foot U-Haul truck! It is already half empty here!
The front room is my favourite space in the cabin. It is so bright and spacious. The cabin isn't an open concept. . . Hugh and I were a bit sad at first about the living room being all the way to the back of the cabin, but on Monday morning when we were having coffee with company, it sure was nice to have the kids a LONG way away! We could actually have a conversation :-)
What do you think of the mint walls? My dad likes them. Me, not so much. Unfortunately, painting them is going to be a serious job. This part of the cabin has the A-frame roof and the mint goes all the way down the hall (which Hugh is calling the green mile).
Hugh and I have a long list of projects. Some are more pressing than others (like the water issue we are having. . .we only have cold water to the hot water tank and toilet and don't have hot water to the tub). I really want to put painting near the top of the non-priority list. I really think it will change the entire feel of this space, but it is a big job, so we'll see.
Boone and Calder had an amazing time this past weekend. Calder learned how to play Super Nintendo and Boone fell in the lake (after Calder encouraged him to lean over the edge of the dock to reach something out of the water). Lawson slept amazing. Including naps in the open loft! What more could we ask for?! Both boys have already been asking when we are heading back to the lake to see Grandma and Papa (Boone can say Grandma, but just calls Grandpa, Papa!).

I will post more on the cabin in the coming weeks. Not that you likely care. . . . But we are REALLY excited about it ;-)
