Bass Lake Vacation 2011

This year our Family Vacation was to Jen's Family Cabin in Michigan, right on the water of Bass Lake. It had been several years since Jen, Clay, Louise and the girls had gone to the cabin, and the first time for Jake, Leah, Matthew, MacGyver, Lionel and Donna. The cabin known as "Finchhaven" has been in Jen's family for decades and home to many memories. We were lucky enough to make several great memories of our own on the trip.

Our girls relaxing on the hammock in front of the cabin.

Enjoying the beautiful weather and water next to the dock.

Playing in the water all days is tiring.

Renee and Jaz spent plenty of time enjoying the hammock

Sunday, we had a BBQ for friends and family from Michigan, some of which we had not seen in a long time.
It was incredible to see all of you, thank you so much for coming.

 "The Crew"

The boys fishing

Macgyver is 8 years old and has never been in the water before. (besides the tub!)
Jake decided to throw him in and see if he could swim.
It wasn't the prettiest thing...but our old dog can swim!

Sailing lessons with Uncle Pat. Thank you so much for teaching us how to sail.
We definitely could us some more lessons.

Jen and the girls had not been back to the cabin since her brother Rob passed away.
Rob's favorite shot was a "Buttery Nipple" so naturally we toasted to Rob and threw down some shots.

This is Kevin's boat. Kevin is a long time friend of the Fraker's.
Kevin was nice enough to take us out on his boat Saturday.
