Liddick Family Christmas in July- #9

Fun at Uncle Glenn and Aunt Linda's Cottage

Our last day together involved packing the crew up one last time and driving to Uncle Glenn and Aunt Linda's (VanHarken) cottage on a little bay off of Lake Ontario. The weather was beautiful and it was so good to see the VanHarkens and Grandma Liddick. We really wished we could have gotten cousins Sarah and Kristen and their families back for the day, though. Maybe next year! Marlena and Jacob experienced a couple of firsts on that trip. They both went fishing for the first time and they also both got to try tubing for the first time in Lake Ontario. Marlena made it look like so much fun that Uncle Dave and Aunt Melissa decided to give it a go even though we'd left our suits back at the cabin. My muscles are still sore; this body is not as young as it was the last time I went tubing!
We also managed to get some cousin pictures before going our separate ways. This is probably one of the best ones taken, but it's quite comical watching the sequence of all the pictures shot. It's not easy getting a good picture of little kids! We also tried getting pictures of Addison and Brogan in the fuzzy yellow chair. This chair used to live at Grandma and Grandpa's house and we all have pictures of ourselves in it when we were little. Brogan was definitely on the move and not really in the mood to sit down for a picture!

Matt, Brianne, and Brogan left from the lake to go home so Matt could preach the next morning. Mike and his kids left early the next morning for Arizona, and David, Addison, and I flew home Sunday night (with much less drama than the first time, however sleepy baby+flying does not equal easy). I'm sure Mom and Dad have been home today completely exhausted by all the hustle and bustle of the week! It was busy, but it was lots of fun!
