Stag Island

We spent a week at Stag Island. For the first couple of nights we were joined by our good friends Mike, Tammy, Will and Jason Altman.
Will, Jason, Lily and Caden.
Boating in front of our cottage. Tammy, Will, Lily and I then did a little float down the river in an inner tube. It was Lily's first : )

Mike pulling Lily and Will in the wagon.

Running through fields of gold...
Jason and Caden are just over a month apart. Here they set out to race across the was a tie, as neither really moved an inch. They are clearly going to be good buds!
On our walk to the head of the island we enjoyed looking for wing fossils and playing with stones.

We did a little jumping on the trampoline too.

We then bid a sad farewell to our friends as they took the ferry back across the river.

But next came Grandma Pfromm and Grandpa we had more folks to take turn with holding our little Chubbers.

Swimming down at the Gruben's beach. Caden loved the water! And Lily warmed up to it too!

Lily helped Grandma Pfromm make cookies. She is a great taster!
Lily loves the cottage. She loves running around in her swimsuit and not wearing shoes.
Here the cool little diva prepares for a walk.
Here we prepare to set off on a BIG walk to the dunes on a wing fossil hunt. Lily rode the entire way down in the wagon, and then pulled the wagon on the way back. Our hunt yielded only 3 fossils. A pittance compared to the old days.
Here Daddy and Caden had some tummy time.
Lily was shocked to head upstairs to the bedroom and find a dolphin in her bed! Compliments of Grandpa Dave.

And playing with her new "pish" stickers.
