My husband’s dad has a house on a lake in Tomahawk. We spent a week there tubing, waterskiing (teaching kid to waterski), fishing, swimming, building fires and eating s’mores, etc. I’m sure I put on a bunch of weight.
Our nephew is an MIT grad so he did some fun experiments with the kid. Heet + borax to make green fire.
The weather was beautiful and we had a great time.
We bought kid’s training waterskis, which attach at front and back. The kid got up on plane, but didn’t manage to stand up.
Maybe next year.
The elderly dog also wanted to go swimming or swim walking.
The kid did have the most spectacular luck in catching fish. All week. It was glorious (even if he was upset that he couldn’t eat the small mouth bass he caught).
Bottom line, he had a great time with Uncles, Aunts, Cousins and Grandparents – and that is what is most important after all….
