The Cottage

In July, we went to The Cottage.  The Cottage is Drew's family's home on the Sassafras River which is just off the Chesapeake.  The last time Drew and I were at The Cottage was when Emma was 18 months old.  It was a long overdue visit. 

We went with Kelsey, Scott, and the girls.  Drew's sisters, Greta and Emily and their families were there.  We missed Lara.  Drew's cousin Hayden and his family came.  Drew's Aunt Beth, Uncle John, and Uncle Steven were there as well.  Scott's parents also drove their boat over for the day. The dock was jam packed with people and we had a blast.

The kids played so hard all day long.  They swam, they boated, they tubed, and they played some more.  We had a wonderful meal...thank you Aunt Beth, Greta, and Emily.  Uncle Steven was the master boat driver!

It had been a very long day for the kids.  They were all so tired.  And, despite re-applications of sunscreen most faces had too much sun especially poor Jonah.

It was a great day and we hope to make this an annual visit!  I want our children to experience the fun of The River and The Cottage just like their Daddy did when he was a little boy!!
