We were able to spend some time at my parent's lake cabin. The first day was beautiful! Perfectly calm, warm and wonderful! Magnolia loved swimming and fishing! After that day the winds seemed to get stronger and stronger and stronger. The last 2 days it was so windy there was very little you could do outside. We did get to go into town and take part in the turtle races, which was an absolute blast! Here is how it works: You pick a turtle (if you did not bring your own!) and when they call your number you get to take your turtle into the middle circle. When they say "GO!" you set your turtle down along with everyone else and see whose turtle crawls out to the outer circle first. Magnolia's turtle won! We then got to race in the semi finals... where her turtle won again! She did not win the finals but did come in 3rd out of about 50 turtles. It really was a fun time! (Well... until the end when Magnolia cried because she didnt get first place. Such a competitive child... can sure tell she is David's child!!) We also got to see Susy and Hannah. We saw Matt for a very short time because he was working all weekend. Keegan decided to sleep the whole time Matt was there so that was kind of a bummer!
