Spirit Lake

My Mom rented a cabin at Spirit Lake the weekend before Father's Day as a gift for my Dad.  We missed not having my brother Scott there with us, but everyone else was there.  It was fun to get together and enjoy some sun and water.

 If you walked down the hill from our cabin, it led out onto a dock.  We had fun gathering there, doing some fishing, watching the boaters, and just hanging out.  Attached to the dock was one of those floating docks.  Molly had a blast climbing from dock to dock and putting her feet in the water.

One of the fish caught was big enough that Emma could fit her whole hand down the mouth.  I'm not sure who came up with that idea...
We headed to one of the only beaches that was around the lake.  It was pretty rocky, but the girls still seemed to have fun.

Later that afternoon Molly, David, and I took a canoe out around the lake for a bit.  That was a lot of fun for all of us.  The wind was strong and there were so many boaters that the water was pretty rough, but it made for some good laughs.
Isn't that sunset beautiful?
I think we all had so much fun on that trip that we've already planned another one for next summer at a different lake.  Do I see a family tradition in the making?
