Cabin-Vacation part 1

We took a full Yenerich family vacation this year. We had Grandpa and Grandma, Uncle Mike and Aunt Laura, Tyler and Katie. It was a two part vacation. The first leg was heading to Dave's grandparent's cabin in Northern Wisconsin. It's beautiful up there and the cabin has been a part of the family for many, many years. It's really neat to be able to take the next generation up there as well. On the drive up the girls rode in one vehicle, and the boys in the other. We got the girls.

We went on the Pontoon boat a few times. This is probably my favorite thing to do up there. I LOVE riding in the boat. The kids did pretty well too. Callie didn't smile much, but she wasn't upset either.

Noah went fishing. Mommy did not. They went to Spirit Lake where the fish are really dense, so you can catch quite a bit. I hear he caught about ten or so. He was really into it...especially the worms.

Noah and Dave played in the lake for a little while. Tyler eventually joined in. Little Miss Katie thought she wanted to join in, but then decided against it.

Perhaps the sweetest part of the trip was when Dave took me back to the place where he proposed 7 years ago (on August 7, 2002). We sort of re-enacted the date with Taco Johns (the same place we grabbed food from on that day) and then headed out to "our" pier. We've gone once before and just chatted about all the changes that have happened since that day. We talked again about all the changes since then even (adding Callie mainly)and then he prayed for us. For those of you who don't know, prayer is how he lead into the proposal, so it was really sweet and a great way to end the date. This is our self-picture of us on the pier.

The last night we were there, Dave and I watched the kids so that Mike and Laura could have their turn at a date. It was actually a lot of fun. We went to McDonalds (big shocker there) and then off to a park. We taught the kids to say "tada!" and throw their hands in the air. They were pretty stinkin cute at it:

We had a great time up at the cabin and were very thankful for the opportunity to be up there.

Looks like a wonderful vacation. The kids look like they had a blast. I particularly like Noah sitting in the water in his undies.

Love the pictures! Looks like you all had a GREAT time. Have a safe trip to see your dad - hope he recovers quickly.

I can't believe how grown-up the kids look! And I love the Sesame Street life vest.
