Ontario 2011


Another successful trip to Ontario. For the first time in years, the weather at the cottage was amazing. We also took in a trip to Niagara falls and got to meet my new nephew. What a great trip!
It didn't start off so great, though. Our luggage was lost for a while and we ended up with no car seats. To add insult to injury, we got lost in the airport looking for our rental car. It got ugly at one point when all of us were at the end of our ropes and we threatened the kids by letting them know their fishing rods were going to meet a terrible fate if they didn't shape up. The exact words escape me, but I'm pretty sure it had something to do with backing over them (the fishing rods, not the kids!). We are all tired, cut us some slack ;)
All was right with the world once we got to the cottage. Another great year of water fights, fantastic food and drink, swimming like little fish and of course, Boaty. We also added fishing to the roster of events. Matthew even caught one. We didn't get a picture, but it was as tall as him and must've weighed 10 pounds.
The newest thrill was jumping from the dock. Tentative at first, then nothing could stop them. That said, Sebastian wanted us in the water to catch him and demanded we open our arms to him and get a "yittle bit cwoser."
Matthew was so proud that he could do it all by himself.
Of course, we ended the time with a little bit of R&R.
