The weekend was spent doing several things we'd never done before. Just before the weekend, Tim bought a BB gun and so we had lots of fun shooting at balloons and paper targets and cans.
Here's the before and after shots of the target area:
My brother-in-law Kevin made a really cool dual purpose trailer. The first purpose was to tow the quad in to the cabin, but the second purpose left us feeling a little 'shook up' and full of memories of a really fun ride. Kevin soldered some chairs to the front of the trailer and then we all piled in and got pulled by one of the quads through some pretty rough terrain. It was an extremely bumpy ride!
We had to stop a few times and pull out the chainsaw to clear the path!
One time we even had to get out and 'walk' the trailer under a huge tree that had fallen across the path!
After almost 2 hours we arrived at our destination..sort of... Next we had a steep (very, very steep) hill to climb down...
a couple hundred feet later, we were there. A beautiful waterfall greeted us!
We enjoyed some time near the waterfall and then it was time to head up the hill again. Here's a shot of Joshua nearing the top.
Then back into the trailer and back to the cabin we went.
Back at the cabin we enjoyed some canoeing.
Tim and I went on a canoeing excursion on our own.
We discovered a little 'inlet' and followed it as far as we could go.
We found beaver footprints
and a beaver dam
Joshua checked out the facilities (c;
The guys took the kids on another quad ride
We enjoyed meals together
and time by the campfire
and snuggles with cousins.
The location couldn't be beat. Here are some scenic photos:
On one of the mornings we caught a glimpse of the beaver!
This is my Aunt Shauna (Uncle Bill's wife) enjoying the living room of their cabin. What a view to wake up to!
It's a little piece of heaven
