Cottage Country

April's parents rented a cottage near Sharbot Lake last week and we were able to spend a few days enjoying the cottage life! It's weird how many little cottages are on back roads in the middle of no where, but all of them have awesome lake views because there are so many little lakes north of Kingston. Claire, Shawn, and Kellen are visiting this week. Here are some photos:

Parker yukking it up at lunch time. I don't remember what was so entertaining, but he liked whatever it was that I was doing. Looks like he has a nice meal of corn and macaroni and possibly a meat product going on down there.

I guess when you finally get some teeth, you love using them. Like the time I was finally able to rent Battletoads for NES. It was so popular that it was always gone, but when I finally got my hands on a copy I must have played it for at least 128 hours straight. That's how Parker is, but with corn on the cob.

Here are some sunfish having a feeding frenzy outside a dock on the beach behind the cottage.

Wasn't there some mention of a hair cut a while back....? I'm just saying.

So, um, yeah. This photo. Parker normally takes a bath at our house and he walks around the tub and splashes around and stuff and generally has a really good time. The cottage only had a shower, so we weren't quite sure how to bathe him. So here's our solution: the cooler. I think there's a "You Might Be A Redneck...." joke somewhere in here.

Post-redneck-cooler bath, Parker emerges in his frog robe! He looks ready to hit the ring for a boxing match. Those frog eyes (and super cute happy smiley face) would totally intimidate Ivan Drago.

Parker and Grandpa reading a book while Mommy also reads a book. Neeeeeerds!

Parker having a quick snack before we went down to the water for a swim, shirtless and giddy.

At least he found his hat.

Grandpa pulling Parker around in his Parker-boat.

Grandpa, Abuelita, and Parker relaxing in the ice-cold lake! The look on Parker's face is hilarious.

Serene.
