Where to Start

Wow it has almost been two weeks since I put something on here. Sorry about that, I have been very busy and tired since I got home last Friday night.

A week ago last Saturday Joia and I flew to Detroit and then drove 9 hours up to Minden, Ontario to meet the rest of our family at a cottage for a week. We had a great week together. I have a lot of pictures here sorry they are placed kind of randomly but oh well.

Since we won't all be able to be together at Christmas we decided we would have Christmas in July. Christmas morning we got up and opened our stockings and then ate yummy cinnamon rolls that Joia made.

All our stockings under the Christmas tree (The tree that just happened to be in the cottage.)

Joia and Keenan in a their Santa hats.

We have never been able to go swimming on Christmas day before. Here Mark and Shaelyn are having a great time in the almost warm water.

They had a great rope swing of some of the rocks.

The guys in our family have sung together a few times for different occasions and we thought that while we were all together we would try to record a few songs. Thanks to Mark we had some recording equipment. Unfortunately we weren't able to get as many songs recorded as we had hoped.

Mark, Dad and Tim

Rob and I

The ladies joined us for a song as well.

That's a little about our week at the cottage I will try to post some more pictures at another time.

Hahaha Mom! I was trying to hold myself back and not comment on the lack of a post, but finally I caved! It does seem rather suspicious though that VERY shortly after my comment, he posts again... Maybe he was just waiting to see how long I'd hold out! I'm glad you pointed that out. I don't think I've ever been accused of being patient.
Thanks for the post Andrew, I feel much better now!
