Grandpa at Amber Lake

My dad came to visit!  We weren't sure he'd be able to come up, but he was here over the weekend and we were able to take him up to Amber Lake...what fun!!  One thing you can be sure of...when my dad and I are some place pretty, there are going to be a LOT of pictures.  Apparently I spend a lot of time doing this...



Apparently it's contagious, too!


We had slow, fun days.  The first day was mostly sunny, the second cloudy and cool.  We played on and around the lake, walked, jumped, and enjoyed each other's company.









And lest you think all of our times are as happy as that shot above, I assure you that there were tears every.single.time we had to get out of the water.  Never mind that you're shivering and hiding in the tube from the wind!  I totally understand how you're not cold/hungry/tired!  Ha!  Those moments are just as real...

Our first night, my dad and I took a walk and spotted this fox.  He was so curious, allowing me to step by step get closer to him with my camera.


The second day we did more relaxing, walking, and spent a bit of time on the water.  Dad and I canoed over to see this cabin on the island in the middle of the lake.




My dad has a macro lens that I had fun playing with on walks and around the cabin...





We came home on Monday and my dad left on Tuesday morning.  A quick visit, but lots of fun!  So glad you were able to break away for a few days, Dad!  Hope things weren't too big of a mess when you got home!
