A Good Start to Cabin Season

I hope you had a great weekend.
We had a busy one but were still able to pop out to the cabin to drop off some wood and survey the warm weather needs out there.
We arrived to the most beautiful surprise...
Ok, I'll admit, this does not look beautiful.
But if you have property on a lake in Alberta you may have been watching your lake front retreat.
This year though, the lake is up, way up.
All of this brush was dry last year and that thing sticking out of the water is a piece of dock that we were storing on dry land.
We're excited!
We repeatedly went and stood at the edge of the water.
Finally Fiona decided we needed to get closer to the wildlife we were pointing out.
This is one of those things I probably wouldn't have done on my own.
Kids are great for encouraging a little more adventure.
So we stood on the water-logged grass and watched the snails and frog drift by us.
I can't wait for more adventures with this little chicken this summer.
 And just to give you the full experience, here's a short clip of our soundtrack for the weekend.
Jeff said that these are the sounds of mating frogs.
I don't know if that's true but if it is then I guess this is NSFW.

  1. My parents have a lake lot and I can't wait for them to open it up on the May long weekend! I also can't wait to see my girls running and playing out there!

    Good to hear your water level is higher (should be with all the snow this past winter hey?)

    Love the pictures of your little ones (and the frog... eeek, I love frogs)!

    Wishing you a lovely day.


What do you think I auto know?
