As you may recall, the blog was initiated on August 30, 2008 (my birthday), when I found out at "the cottage" I was pregnant. "The cottage" was built by the girls' maternal Great Granny and Grandad in 1967 in Pentwater Michigan on Bass Lake. I spent all my summers there as a kid. It's a pretty special place that holds amazing memories. My nearly 90 year old Granny lives there full time. My Uncle lives nearby on 28 acres where he's soon building his authentic log cabin.
We had to take the girls! It was a fun weekend over the 4th of July -- we swam a ton at our lake and Lake Michigan. The girls HATE sand!
Granny, Gram, Gramps, Great Uncle Kirk, and cousin Alexis were all there.
