Over Memorial weekend, I went up north to my families cottage. We have been going up there every since I can remember. It has always been one of my favorite places to go. It’s been a little harder going up there since my uncle passed away, but we still have a lot of fun. It was his favorite place to be and he would have lived up there if he didn’t have to work.
It’s nothing fancy, but I love it up there. This picture wasn’t taken this weekend but it’s a picture og the cottage.
Here is a beautiful picture of a sunset from last summer.
When we first got up there, we went swimming. Even though the water was freezing cold, we decided to go in. Then we spent the rest of the weekend lounging around, playing games (including a Buffy the Vampire Slayer board game and Little Big Planet 2).
On Saturday, we somehow ended up starting to talk in British accents the whole day. I’m pretty sure we started annoying my sister, Alex after a while. Once you start talking in an accent, it’s very hard to stop. I’m still doing it every once in a while. My accent isn’t very good but it was a lot of fun.
This is my cousin’s dog, his name is Elwood (named after the Blues Brothers movies). Hes sitting there with his favorite toy up at the cottage, Hunchy. He’s getting super old and I’m not sure how much longer he will be around.
It was also my sister’s 18th birthday on Sunday so we went out to eat to one of our favorite Italian restaurants. I always get the same thing, Chicken Parmesan. I would probably try other things but we usually only go once a year because it’s a little expensive.

Thanks for reading! 🙂
Elwood is too cute! And I know what you mean about trying new foods, it’s hard to do that when you already know you love something there! I venture out once in awhile but its hard to do.
It looks like you had a lot of fun, and Elwood is super cute. I love the name too.
