vacation part 3: arriving at the Lincoln Lodge

The "Lincoln Lodge" is what my parents call their lake cabin, which is outside of Minocqua, Wisconsin. After Kara's wedding we all drove up together (minus AJ, who flew in the next day) and everyone from my side of the family was there for the better part of a week. It was the first trip up there for a lot of us. The cabin is a work in progress, but it's becoming a very nice place and we had a blast. In fact, Will and I are headed back up there this afternoon (Grandma Susan is there for the entire month of July).

Here's the scene when we first got there.

It was great to see Adam and Chandi - they're in Vancouver so we've only been able to see them once or twice a year. Will liked Aunt Chandi's hat.

But he did not like having to wear his life jacket or hat. Grandpa and I took him out on the boat for his first time and we couldn't get a single smiling picture. To be fair, this was right before nap time. A couple days ago we took him out on the boat in Madison and he was much more tolerant of the life jacket then.

We spent a lot of time in the sun, so there were lots of sunglasses lying around to play with. Between mom, grandma, and aunts Chandi and Jenna there were probably 20 pairs up there.
