It was my brothers idea and it wasn’t even a bad one. (As his sister I’m required to say stuff like that.)
As kids we had taken many summer trips island camping in the flowages of northern Wisconsin and now that our own kids were all out of the major diaper/nap/crying stages he suggested we do it again.
The weather was rather…
…uncooperative……but it didn’t matter.
There was still fishing…
… and kayaking..
… and games…
… and sand to play in…
…and boats to learn to drive…
…and general silliness with cousins…
… and one very happy, very tired, rather stinky dog.
As we packed up on Sunday that brother of mine had another idea.
He said we should do it again next year.
I agreed wholeheartedly.
Because sometimes that brother of mine has really good ideas.
For accuracy’s sake I feel compelled to note that while we started with seven people more family joined us throughout the trip until we numbered 12. I however took more pictures of kids, bumblebees and my dog than anything else and they are all highly underrepresented in photos. Sorry family!
What bliss, Jessie!

As ideas go, this looked to be one of the best! Makes me wish I had a brother…
It does make up for some of the pestering and general stinkyness of brothers. 😉
Personally I don’t think it’s worth a photo of it doesn’t include a child and/or dog I’m related to. Or a bumblebee of course. So congrats on the EXCELLENT photography!
Why thank you! I fully agree! 😀

It looked like everyone as a good time. Be sure to do it again next year, make an annual event. These are the things your kids will remember. Mine all get together for an annual camping trip started out to b e sturgeon bay every summer now going other places. Big family event!!
We also have good memories of similar annual trips as kids, so partly to give our own kids such experiences and partly because we don’t want to miss out ourselves we are planning on making it an annual event! 🙂
