Off To The Cottage.......Soon!

We have rented a cottage again this year! Last year was so much fun we just had to do it again. We have changed locations, mostly due to size of the cottage. Each of our kids have a friend coming, so that is 6 kids....2 adults and our cat!

We were able to get one right on the lake again. That is such a bonus. We spend a lot of time tubing and boarding so to have the 'playground' right in front of you make is it really easy!

This year we are on Stoney Lake which is about 1/2 hour outside of Peterborough. We will be about 20 minutes from the small town of Lakefield, which is where I went to grade 7, 8 and 9.

Above are a couple of shots that the owner sent us of the waterfront.

Here are some photos of the inside of the cottage. I was most interested in seeing photos of the bathroom....but there wasn't any. I don't like using public washrooms (I don't even use the one at our store unless I have to) and I don't think I can hold it for an entire week. I hope it is nice!?!
I know, I have issues.

It does look like a nice cottage.........lots of wood. I see a leather couch....heck we don't have one of those at home. I see a fridge, microwave and stove......but where is the dishwasher? I will spend a lot of time on the dock by the water. Maybe I will read a good book..........ha ha ha.....did I get you? I am actually going to try. I want to add a section to the side of my blog that is for books I have read...........that is my motivation.

Well, I will have lots to post when we return from the cottage. Remember the wake boarding photos from last year? I have to top that! Check back often...........there may or may not be something for you to read. I have to keep you guessing.
