Memorial Day Weekend 2011

Memorial Day usually means a weekend at my dad's lake cabin.  So we hoped in the car on Friday afternoon for the drive up.  It's about an 3 hour and 30 minute drive if you don't stop but we figured with Little L we'd have to stop at least once...but thankfully we were wrong!  :)  She fell asleep about 45 minutes into the drive and slept for over an hour and a half.  That meant that she really only had to be "entertained" for about an hour at a time so we were able to make the drive without stopping!  WooHoo!  One of the things that helped keep her entertained was V Tech Learning Tunes Karaoke toy that I had gotten for about $6 during a great sale at Toys R Us!  Little L absolutely LOVES it and I have to admit it is one of my favorite electronic toys that I have ever gotten her.

Unfortunately the weather was kind of yucky so we didn't get a lot of nice outside playtime in but the girls still had fun and even played in the lake for a bit while the guys put the dock in.  We had to give them a warm bath afterwards to warm them up since the lake was still really cold!  On Saturday night a group of us took a trip into town to go to the movie Thor.  It was lots of fun with the family!  

Here are some pics from the weekend:

Do you like that I just took Little L's pants off and let her splash in her raincoat!

Both of the girls on ipads!  We're a very technically advanced family you know!  :)
