My trip diary, day sixteen

So come Wednesday we really starting hitting our stride at the cottage. The whole big group of us went on dune rides and it was a blast. It was one of those things that every single one of us truly enjoyed, from Eloise up to Grandpa. It was something I had ever seen before, as well. I was so enamored with the dunes I was loving the idea of renting personal dune buggies, but alas, I was the only interested in that adventure.



This is what we looked like on the dune ride :)




My SIL two nieces and nephew.



Iris, with Eloise on her right and my sister, sister's husband and their son on her left.



The four of us. I have never before worn Eloise like that in the Mei Tai, but it worked really well for the ride. We were told we could hold babies on our laps and I just couldn't help but feel like that was exceptionally dangerous.



This was another dune buggy that we passed.



Matt and I.



After the dune rides we walked over to get some food and ice cream. Here is my younger nephew with my younger niece and Iris. I love this photo, my brother captured it.


We came back to the cottage and had a mish-mash dinner, including the corn on the cob my mom roasted over the fire.



After dinner there was more swimming and then I finally got my wish and twisted enough arms and we went out to roast s'mores over the fire. Yum! Here is my dad by the fire.



After all of the kids and my mom and dad went to bed the rest of us sat out by the fire for a while and relaxed. My brother's family had to leave really early the next morning so it was our last night to spend with them.
