cabin fever

We went with my parents to their cabin a few weeks ago. Fortunately there wasn't actually any fever going on (as the title suggests) but it sure was hot! Here are some highlights:
I love some good bb gun shootin'! Paisley wasn't so sure at first (notice her covering her ears in the background),
but she warmed up pretty quickly.
Gun=fun for all ages? That thing's bigger than you, my boy!
Galla preferred to stick with the tire swinging
and cricket catching.
Then we did some cruising on the quads. I wish I had gotten a picture of all the kids on the quads with their helmets and stuff on--they looked so cute and hard-core (it sounds like an oxy-moron, but that's how I'd describe them)! Paisley actually seemed to be the one to enjoy the thrill of the ride the most. She would squeal and yell, "Go faster! Go over the bumpies!"
The kids also enjoyed plenty of playing in the awesome treehouse. There is a bucket at the end of that rope that they are putting treats in and pulling up to their hideout.
And, of course, there was lots of s'mores making
around the campfire. It was good times in the great outdoors.

I may be slow to post, but that doesn't take away from the fact that last month our co-ed rec-league softball team beat "Cleats and Cleavage" to win the championship game! It was such a fun season playing every Monday night with a bunch of friends. I was easily the worst one on the team (at least Brad picked up some of my slack with his skills) and I didn't know I could have so much fun doing something I'm so bad at! Go "Easy Outs!"
The children of the champs. All the other teams had maybe a kid or two between them...we had a big fan section/distraction!
The bath water after we got home that night was the worst I've ever seen. More like a mud bath!
