Uncle Tim wrestling with the boys- my boys think Tim is just the coolest!
Bug caught a couple of fish- David and Goliath ;) The big one is a beautiful brown trout- the small one a nice pan-sized rainbow
When we were fishing at a new spot- Bug and Doodle went exploring, and before long- they were across the river on top of this Beaver Dam.
Doodle came in the cabin all excited- "Mom, come look- it's a doe!" And he was right- a Doe walked right through our yard.
Roo and his cousin W sharing cheese at the fish bridge. These two are so cute together!
Amber and Tim went home- and left their boys at the cabin with us for the week- they had a super time with the cousins.
