Manitoulin Island-Summer Vacation from July

We spent a week on Manitoulin Island. It is incredibly beautiful! To get to the island you need to take a ferry (or drive way up north to take a swing bridge). The kids kept calling the Chi-Cheemaun the 'tooth fairy boat'.

Sleepy after a LONG drive to catch the ferry.
My crazies.
A light house we passed while on the ferry.
The sun setting while on the Chi-Cheemaun...

Some things we did while at the cottage...

Ice Cream!!! :O)

Two of the bedrooms...

Messy S'mores.
Dan not so sure about this treat!

Back home, painting some rocks the girls collected on the island.

Swimming Lessons

This pic is from the last day-Hawaiian day. They girls were too embarrassed to keep their Hawaiian stuff on for the lesson.

Mia jumping off the high diving board-for a Tim Horton's donut. Ksena and Mia both did it-Ksena first!
Esmé doing her back float. The teacher called her Esmee and she called Ksena, Ksauna. Joey Luth was in the class and gave up correcting her after a few days. I liked it when he defended our names! ;O)

Water Chalking
My kids LOVE painting everything with wet chalk. Mostly they just make big colorful puddles by dissolving the chalk in water. It keeps them busy and since Mia is the best 'cleaner-upper' in the world, I let them do it.
