A special re-treat

We've recently returned from the land without internet. After our tearful goodbyes with the dada last week we headed north to spend a couple of fabulous days with my mom out at the lake. 

It's been over three years since I'd been to the property that I once spent my entire summers as a teen. It turned out to be a special treat to share the memories with my own kids, to watch them navigate the trails, dance in the tipi ring and roast marshmallows in the fire pit. 

Thanks to mom for her generous hospitality and all the fun treats that made the kids comfortable in the bush. Isla was sad to leave when it was time, after having had a taste of Grandma Lady's special retreat, and I assured her we'd be back some day.
