It's been a crazy summer so far but I'm finally getting around to posting some of our summer activities. We took Jake on his first trip to Duluth. Duluth is one of my favorite cities in Minnesota and it's only 30 minutes from my cabin so it makes for a great day trip.

5 Boy Cousins!

7 years ago we took a picture of all 5 boy cousins who were all born within a year of each other. 7 years later we finally got them all to sit still to get another one. We didn't do a good job at getting all the boys in the same order but this is how it goes.

All cousins 1 year apart in age.. Top Tony, Jake , Gavin , Sawyer . Luke . Bottom Luke 7, Gavin 7, Sawyer 7, Jake 7, Tony 8 

4th of July!

This post from the 4th of July is a little late. I haven't had a free minute to post. Jake and I headed to the cabin to celebrate the 4th of July with the family. It was not only a therapeutic weekend for me but Jake had a blast playing with all his cousins. Life has been rather hard for me lately and it's times with family that puts life into perspective. Picture from the weekend.
