We have a large family. There are 5 cabin within the same area that are owned by members of my family. A little ways down the lake my Aunt and Uncle have a cabin. Travel a little farther around the lake and you will find another Aunt and Uncle in their cabin and then next to them is my Cousin and his family. Across the lake is another family member. We have a lot of history on that lake and in the area. My Great Grandma was born and raised there. The time that we all spend together is precious. There are so many of us and so many generations. I have 3rd and even 4th cousins that I am close with. I think its amazing and I wouldn't change it for anything. That being said I took a lot of pictures of the weekend. I neglected as usual to take pictures of B and I with Jake but did get many of Jake playing and having a great time.
The start of Memorial Weekend always kicks off with the boys putting in the dock. Normally B helps with the dock but he is super sensitive to cold because of the chemo and couldn't handle the temp of the water.
They were having some issues this year as one of our docks had the stairs give way. The boys put a lot of hours into building up the stairs. So much for a relaxing weekend for them but what would we do without them!
My Grandpa and Grandma live up at the cabin during the summer. My Grandpa loves to ride around in his golf cart with his dog Holly. This year Jake was big enough to go for a ride with Papa and boy he didn't want to stop.

Every Memorial Weekend everyone gets together down the hill at Uncle Dick and Auntie Mary's cabin and has a hot dog cook out. Here is a picture of some of my family enjoying the bonfire. It's only a quarter of the circle.
