Cottaging for the long weekend

So it's the first long weekend of the season (and not even summer yet), but it means cottage time!! The best things about the cottage are that there is all family up there, there is fresh air and of course the lake. Usually the first long weekend is not a good time to go in the water (which doesn't stop some people) but this year it was wonderful! And we all got to enjoy the water, even Nickolas (though you can't tell from the picture).
We did do some swimming (OK more like sitting) in the water with Nickolas, but mostly he just sat in the shade and watched what we were doing. But he really liked after the swim, I brought him to deeper water, just to get all the sand out of ... well everywhere. He got all wrapped up in a nice comfy towel and really like chewing on the edges.
Since we were up at the cottage I also got to do some fundraising for my walk, and of course show off my cute kids and make spina bifida a common name. And around our family, it is. There is no hiding it, no secrets and wonderings. We are very open about what is going on. But it is ALOT easier to explain to adults than to children - I'm still working on that one.
