A Chilly Memorial Day at Little Birch

The crew hung out at the cabin on Little Birch for Memorial Day weekend. It was not warm. Actually it was pretty cold ;) We moved camp from down by the lake to on top of the hill by Darrell and Suzette's camper because it was sooo windy and cold by the lake!  Here's a panorama of the campsite with Ella and Cody playing soccer on the left and then me, Jake, Grant, Ruby, Suzette, Darrell, Leidy, Dad and Mom.

I like this picture ;) Ella cracks me up - see how her legs are straight out holding her plate? heh

Suzette, Bear and Ruby

Me, Chris and Mom

Leidy had a hard time containing herself with all the soccer ball kicking and bean bag throwing that was going on

Ella and Jake discussing bean bags

Mom, Dad and Heather ;) heh

Ella rode with us to the cabin and stayed to party for the weekend - having some French toast one morning!

Since it was cold we did a lot of hanging out in the cabin. And the cabin's not that big ;) lol So, we all squish onto this one couch - Ella, Jake, Grant, Cody, Suzette.  Leidy's wondering where her spot is.

Ella's weekend consisted of a lot of fishing, digging in the sand (when she could get someone to stay by the lake with her long enough in the coldness ;) and playing soccer. She did a lot of soccer playing one night even into the darkness. She just kept running and kicking and we thought she'd never wear out!

Mama Marla's Hike it or Bike it 2013!

Before the races - Catherine, Heather, Me and Leidy (and Ella in the stroller)

Lining up for the 5k!

Leidy ran her first 5k!

And we came in first ;) And then she almost tripped me because she heard Mom cheer for her and tried to run in front of me lol ;)  That's Gary out in the road in the orange shirt.

Mom, Me, Catherine, Leidy and Dad before having some spaghetti!

Heather and Ella finishing!

We even made the Long Prairie Leader ;)

And then we put the dock in at Little Birch!
