Grandma's cottage is fairly kid friendly with the exception of firearms (locked and unloaded of course) and mouse poison. There were all kinds of activities for the girls. Sandbox, coloring books, bubbles, plus 2 out of 3 uncles were up for the weekend which was a nice break for me.
The boys love to chase the girls around the yard and give the weary Binny piggy back rides through the woods.Mae isn't scared of the animals in the woods the way Binny is. Heck Mae wouldn't leave the yard without her binoculars, you know just in case. No bears this time but we did have a very friendly deer visitor several times over the weekend. She walked right into the yard while we were eating and having a camp fire. I think she wanted a s'more but we weren't sharing.
There was also a little excitement when Uncle T was hunting red squirrels. 2 down, 187,538 left in the woods.
The trees and ferns were as beautiful as ever.
The wild flowers were blooming and the butterflies were abundant. The mosquitoes weren't too terrible but bug spray was a must.
