Arthur and Lewis each brought a friend (Ottar and Josh) to the cottage for a few nights this weekend and it was such fun for everyone. I got to fish lots (we ate fish both nights!), the boys plays lots of Catan, made up weird games, swam all the time, they fished with me lots since fish were a-bitin'. Funniest was they walked to nearby campstore and apparently played weird pinball game for bouncy balls. Put a quarter in, get at least one, sometimes two bouncy balls. So they spent all their money on that and came back with pockets STUFFED with bouncy balls. 20-30 each. Then they traded like it was Halloween candy.
This seems dangerous, and it probably is, but we went down and checked the depth, it's deep! And tons of kids and families have been jumping off lots. Here's Art showing his sisters how to do it. The twins were going to do it, then not, then going to, and eventually, right before we were going to leave, Bailey did it. And then Netta had to. Summer fun!
