A tradition was born many years ago, we all gathered up north to wish Grandma and/or ‘da Mama a happy birthday in early August. EEEK, her own nickname for herself, has been gone for 3 summers now, but we still honor her by gathering together and enjoying a family summer getaway.
Pictures will tell my story of the fun we had:
We visited Palms Brook State Park, Kitchitikipi—the Big Spring. Yes, the water is this color!
Good photo of the springs bubbling up, and of the brown trout. No fishing here!
Can you see the UFO? This was taken looking straight into the water, with the trees, sky and a fish reflecting:
We all enjoyed ice cream afterwards, and the children all received wooden snakes from the gift shop.
Except those who were too little:
We had Jeff’s boat, jetskis, our canoe, and two kayaks…
If a early morning fishing trip is to happen, Jeff must pull his boat up closer to shore, and wade out to it….BRRRRRRR
I have more photos to dig up. The process has gotten quite complicated because Jeff and I use FOUR different cameras to take pictures now. Our phones, and our cameras.
But, what a great time we all had!
