Ack! Would you believe that in my post about our Canada trip I left out THE most important people who were there?! My Mom and Dad, the king and queen of that rustic castle! I think in my mind I was assuming you all would just know they were there because this was a family vacation, just like every summer since I was Everett’s age. They make this place and this annual trip possible, working their tails off to improve and keep up the place, drive all the way there with a boat we all use, and cooking and cleaning for all their guests.
This year was so different from last year, when Eric and I only got to stay a week and my brother and sister were both overseas, and I was so pregnant that I pretty much just napped and knitted all day. This year it was particularly special to have the whole family back together and get to share a full two weeks with Mom and Dad after being out of the country ourselves for so long. I hope they’ll forgive me for leaving them out of my first hurried jots about the trip!
