A weekend trip to the cabin

This past weekend, Jenn, Brian and I went on an adventure; we took the ferry to Kingston to visit my grandparents at their cabin. Jenn and I used to go there a ton during the summers as kids, but we hadn't been back for at least five years.

Suzi loved the ferry!

She also loved the beach!

It was great to see my grandparents, who are nearing 90 years old and are still maintaining two houses by themselves! We were served a very interesting 4th grade lunch consisting of stale bread, peanut butter and jelly, homemade pickles, root beer, thinly sliced pre-packaged ham, an unidentifiable white cheese, and milk.

Old people are funny. My grandma made herself a peanut butter sandwich and then put a ton of iceburg lettuce on it. Her peanut butter sandwich crunched when she ate it! Weird. And then Grandpa made a sandwich with ham and white cheese, coating one side of the bread with tarter sauce and the other side with oyster sauce. "Oyster sauce beats ketchup any day!" he exclaimed. I didn't have the heart to tell him that they weren't even related.

Anyway, I was reminded how my grandma is the original Martha Stewart. Look at this little cabin she made years ago out of driftwood, stones, sand, and found pieces of glass. I love it so much, I wish I lived there!

That's it, just a post full of cuteness.

Whoa, that is a total dream cabin. I really love meta decor like a cabin with a mini cabin in it. Of course, YOUR grandma would be that awesome!

Meta decor! You are inspiring me to create a diaphragm. Wait, that's not right. Diagram? What are those elementary school projects called?

It's a diorama, and I'm right there with you. I used to want to live in tiny things like

like doll houses. That's what I was going to say.

That's wierd, I don't think I learned about diaphragms until after elementary school. Does Lynden Christian teach about those things earlier?
