We rented out a quaint little cabin up North at the end of June to celebrate Casey's completion of his coursework for his MBA! We wanted something in the middle of nowhere and near water, and that's exactly what we got.
Peace. Quiet. Family time. and Water. Ahhhhh.
We spent a lot of time in the cabin listening to music, cooking and hanging out. But when we weren't in the cabin, we were most likely out hunting for rocks to throw in the water, or out on the fishing boat.
Porter loved "ishing."
Until we actually caught a fish. Since we aren't fisherman, we weren't prepared to catch a fish at all. No net or cooler to house the fish in. So what better place to put the fish, but in the back of the boat? Yeah, not a good idea. Porter and I were screaming with each flop of the fish and my legs were covered in fish slime when we got back to the cabin. And do you see the boat with real fisherman in the picture above? I'm sure they had a good laugh at us screaming our way back to the cabin as Casey hurriedly paddled back. It was miserable and slightly traumatic for both Porter & I. I was relieved when he was ready to get back into the boat later that day. I was worried we scared him for life.
Oh, and this.... it's just a huge statue of Paul Bunyan. No biggie, right? Okay, maybe a little creepy. But how were we to resist sitting on his hand and getting a picture?
And that my friends sums up our trip up North. A lot of relaxing and hanging with Paul Bunyan.
If you're curious where we found lodging, we tried out airbnb.com (it's a lot like VRBO). I highly recommend it if you're looking for something outside of a traditional hotel/condo vacation.
