Atreya and the Cabin

It is June 15, 2013, Father’s day weekend and we finally got a chance to open up the cabin. We usually try to come out late April, early May. It’s been a sucky Summer this year with mother nature punishing us Minnesotans by depriving us of our Summer as if we’re not punished enough to have long winter months all year. I have a love-hate relationship with Minnesota. It’s mostly love though.

It’s Atreya’s first visit to the cabin and we didn’t get a chance to get the dock out due to the storm. Treyton, all of the sudden gained interest in fishing, so we got him a new fishing rod to which neither his Dad or Grandpa knew how to line it. Thank goodness for YouTube. The storm also had prevented us from having a seafood boil on the deck on this so we had it inside.

Jeff and Treyton had a chance to bond on one of the two nicer days — Sunday — to shoot BB guns while Jeff smoked his cigars on the deck. It can’t get any manly-er than that. I was okay with Jeff teaching such skills, in case of Zombie Apocalypse, in which Treyton replied: “Mom, there’s no such thing as Zombie Apocalypse.” Yes, I’m obviously not the adult in this relationship, on this instance.

Here are some pictures I took from the cabin in honor of Father’s Day. To my love Jeffrey. There’s no other man on this planet Earth that is more perfect than my man to procreate and raise our beautiful offsprings together. We three (Agate the dog too) are so lucky to have you.

Atreya Renna – One Month Old

At one month, Atreya is more demanding. Unlike the first two weeks, refusing to sleep in her bassinet. No longer wanted to be swaddled although I modify the way I swaddle her now, not too tightly with her arms on the side, instead, I’ve loosen up a bit with her arms folded on her chest and I let her legs free. Her lungs are so much stronger now that her cries are louder. She grunts a lot too.
She’s so goddamn cute though, I’m willing to overlook these annoying new habit, for a moment.Here are some one month old pictures that I took during our impromptu vacation Up North. We love impulsive trips. Jeff was dying for a vacation so at the last minute on Friday night, we booked a one night stay at Cove Point Lodge, facing Lake Superior, equipped with an in-room jacuzzi.
