Speed Dating

We spent Father’s Day weekend on Balsam Lake, crossing off the ‘must do’ activities on Findley’s list. We all played hooky on Friday to cram in an extra day of fun. It was a bit like speed dating with the cottage – we got a lot of things done but as I reflect back, they all seem to jumble together in one long blur. But I know we made a connection… I will definitely be back.

Since we will be busy in the city and won’t be able to get back to the cottage for another month, Findley had a laundry list of activities he had to cross off his list:
Frogging – check
Catching pickerel fry off the dock – check
A trip to the park – check
Fishing in turtle swamp – check
S’mores on the campfire – check

Bronwyn wasn’t as specific. She wanted to play with her friends, swim and eat marshmallows. Her list was a bit easier to accommodate.

Either way, it was a great, action-packed weekend. The weather was perfect and we got all of our yard work and chores done quickly to take advantage of the sun and play in the lake. Even I went for an early-summer dip which is out of character for me – but I didn’t get my hair wet – I’ll save that milestone for the next trip.

 
It was hard to pull away on Sunday afternoon, but the we have some exciting adventures ahead in July and a whole week’s vacation at Balsam Lake to look forward to in August. I’m not going to wish my summer away too quickly, rather enjoy every minute in the sun.
