The second weekend of August was our annual college friend cabin weekend--2 of my college roommates + their spouses/kids and another college friend and his family = 8 adults and 9 kids (in a 2-bedroom cabin). We borrowed a tent and the Brekkes had their tent, so the sleeping arrangements all worked out. Everyone arrived Friday night (even Dave, who was working just 20 minutes away for most of the weekend). We enjoyed pizzas made by the Kunzes for supper. Saturday was our beach day. We took the speed boat and the neighbor's pontoon out to the island and enjoyed the PERFECT beach weather and water. Norah and her littler buddies enjoyed her new Hello Kitty floatie that Tracy sent her from Korea. Abby and friends tried out the alligator that the girls got for their birthday, but it was a little less sturdy. Abby and Jannah enjoyed a tube ride out to the island.
Saturday evening, we had a baby shower for the Brekkes and Schwartzes, who welcomed new babies in February and April. Then it was time for a bonfire!
Sunday morning was a little cooler, but some of the braver ones jumped on the water trampoline for awhile. Erik and Bill helped the older kiddos with a puzzle before the Brekkes had to leave.
Matt took off after supper, but the Kunzes hung around one more night, so we took an evening boat ride before it started to rain.
Kristina and I hung around until Wednesday--Dave had Monday and Tuesday off, so took Abby fishing in Frazee. It was nice having just Norah for a couple of days, but the cabin was still busy with two 2-year olds and a 6-month old!
