Vacation started off great. Until we remembered that we left the keys to the cabin in Wisconsin at home.
Also, mental note: if we ever suggest that we’re going to leave really early with hopes of our kids falling asleep so we can get, according to Alex, “a couple hundred miles under our belts,” tell us we’re insane and that the combination of early rising and no breakfast is not very good for our kids.
That puking was followed by more puking. Quinn then Sam then Jack, then back to Quinn. Most of it was bile though, because we hadn’t fed them. Unfortunately Quinn had gotten hold of a bag of Doritos in the interim between his two vomit storms and unleashed them all over his clothes, my sweatshirt, and the vomit towel that we fortunately remembered to bring along.
Another mental note: Never feed Team Stimey, Jr. Doritos before noon.
We stopped in Michigan for the night and continued across to the Upper Peninsula the next day.
Finally we arrived at the cabin. There is a little dock there jutting out into two or three foot deep water. Jack, Sam, and Quinn created a little “rock collection” at the end of the dock by finding every rock in a three mile radius and throwing it in the water.
Some other stuff fell in too.
Loon Day was all kinds of fun. Right up until this happened:
He was gone for 10 or 15 minutes. It was horrible. He was completely unconcerned. HE knew where he was.
Jack has also picked up a new habit on this trip.
Besides throwing rocks in the water, we all found other ways to have fun.
After that trip to the museum that wasn’t and a stop at a baseball diamond to play some ball, we headed back to our cabin. The cabin that is in the middle of nowhere and really doesn’t need to be locked.
Fortunately, we’re city folk, so we lock everything and all our valuables were secured. Even from us.
We left the cabin today, but before we did…
Now we’re off to Alex’s aunt and uncle’s cottage by Lake Michigan. Hopefully it will be less eventful but just as much fun.
