Since my grandmother passed away and my parents took on ownership, they've done a great round of updating and modernizing. Including finishing the attic and building a dormer off the front to expand the second floor. (All the construction was done by my amazing brother-in-law, who's working on our dining room renovation right now.)
The cabin is tucked underneath a wooded mountain and directly across the street is this beauty. A teeny little lake that is perfect for swimming, canoeing and exploring. There's no cell reception, no TV, and you have to drive miles on dirt roads to get to anything near civilization. Sooo peaceful.
My kids spend most of their time at the lake perfecting their cannon-balls and inventing new dive techniques.
Every Memorial Day weekend, the little village has the most amazing, small-town parade you could ever see. This year a National Guard marching band came down.
The bagpipes get me every time...
These guys have the MOST fun with their mini-motorcycles.
Love the old-time rescue vehicles.
...to the Minutemen from the Revolutionary War.
The highlight for my kids is an ice cream from the general store.
Stay tuned for more progress on the home-front.
