What a GREAT Weekend!!

The trip to the lake was such fun!

I had picked up a little fishing pole for little Jam he loved it but referred to it as his 'Fish Whip' for the first two days!!
Jam tried to show him how to cast off the side of the canoe, but he insisted he knew exactly how to use it ALL BY HIMSELF!  DH put a hook on the end that looked like a fish (and then cut the sharp hooks off). Whenever he pulled it out of the water he was convinced he had caught a little green fish!


The weather was supposed be stormy however, we only had a little rain one night.  The evenings were wonderful and the temperature got down to about 65 - 70 degrees! We had to put on our sweaters and wrap in blankets (me and little jam) to look at the star's using Grandma's glow in the dark book!!


We were camping next to a little inlet and so Jam and Boo were allowed to take the canoe out by themselves, it was such a picture -- Jam sat at the back doing all the paddling and Boo sat up the front casually fishing!!






Jam even took it out by himself! He had proven to be an expert canoeist! I asked him if had been practicing and he just said "No, I just watched Dad a lot!" - Shows what kids can pick up when you don't think they are paying attention!





Boo was our expert 'Smore' maker!


At one point she nearly lost a marshmallow 


                                               
                                              but, caught it to make the perfect smore!!



What a fun weekend full of memories!!!
