Cottage 2012

 Another great year that we've been able to go to the cottage. Last year Harrison and I went by ourselves since Porter had to stay for school, but this year Porter was able to come! Harrison and I flew out at the end of June and then Porter drove out about a week and a half later because he had scout camp and then had to work a couple of days. It really was a great year! Harrison did get really sick one day, high fever of 104 but luckily it only last one day. I'm told it's not the cottage if kids don't get sick, but it's totally different when it's your kids who are sick. 




He put this contraption together all by himself....haha!!

Hanging out at the Blue Water Bridge.....crosses from Michigan to Canada


Measuring up











We also celebrated Harrison's 2nd birthday at the cottage. It was so much fun to have so much family there, he really got spoiled with all the attention.






I know this is already a super long post but there was one funny story I had to include. So apparently Justin Bieber grew up about an hour from where our cottage is and one night, I don't know how, but we were heading to the movies and we got on the topic that he probably would come visit Grand Bend sometimes (this is where our cottage is). And I was so adamant that he would not come visit Grand Bend, population 1000, when he has all this money to go wherever he wants to in the world. This conversation was quite lengthy with everyone putting in their opinions about why or why he wouldn't visit Grand Bend. Well we get back from the movies and the big news is that Justin Bieber was in Grand Bend! He came in with his family and had some dinner at one of the bars on Main Street. We were all laughing our heads off because we had just had this huge conversation on whether he'd ever come to Grand Bend. No one in our family actually saw him so there's no way to confirm the story but my cousins saw his "batmobile" car parked on Main Street and the locals all said they saw him.
