Cabin Opening

Once again the cabin is open and ready for all the fun of summer. Despite the rainy weather, all of the leaves were raked up and almost every other cabin-opening activity was accomplished.

The activity which Zoe engaged in most was eating.

The highlight of the weekend though, was the Wear Your Hat To Dinner dinner on Saturday night. For reasons unbeknownst to the rest of us, my dad declared that everyone needed to wear a hat to dinner on Sat. night. As always, we did what we were told :-)

My sister-in-law Joy and niece Colleen started the dinner off in the following fashion.

Nina was looking sharp in her straw hat.

Evan and Aidan, well, they just looked too cool for their own good. Apparently they thought it was Wear Your Sunglasses To Dinner night.

Nina, Cousin Rachel and Emily were banished to the living room to eat dinner.  Okay, not really banished, there was just no room for them in the kitchen.

Before long, the hats started moving from head to head.
It wasn't long before Colleen was wearing Molly's Ethiopian hat and my brother Jim was wearing Peter's firefighter helmet.

Then Chris ended up in Molly's hat and

Deb was seen in this lovely number.

By the end of the meal, this is what started to happen...
Aside from working and wearing hats the kids did also find some time to play.All in all, it was a wonderful time, but I think it just plum wore Raelea out and she fell asleep on the living room floor.
