Preparing for a Grand Adventure

Well sort of anyway.  We're taking our first trip to the family cabin as a family of three (four if you count the dogger).  V is heading up early with his boat to do some fishing.  I guess I could go up with him, I mean I'll be awake at 4am anyway but I decided against it.  We have to take both the car and truck anyway (long story).  So tomorrow Liam and I will zoom off in our over loaded car and travel the ~1.5 hours to the cabin solo.  I won't lie to you, I'm kinda nervous.  Liam doesn't always love the car, sometimes he down right hates it.  I'm super nervous he'll get upset and I may not be able to pull over to comfort him for several miles.  I'm going to attempt to do the trip during his morning nap but those aren't super consistent yet and just being in the car might through it off.  Perhaps (hopefully) I'm just a nervous Nancy for nothing....
(Thanks Google Images!)

The drive aside it should be a good weekend.  V and I love the cabin, it's a huge blessing to be able to travel up there and enjoy the silence of nature.  I love being away from life's distractions, there is no cable TV, no Internet and we usually shut our phones off (you guessed it, no land line!).  I'm hoping we can at least enjoy a family walk since hiking it's a option this summer.  I imagine we'll have lots of down time to hang on the dock or just chill in the cabin and enjoy family time.  I'm pretty excited, the cabin is a staple of V's childhood memories and now it will be for Liam too....pretty neat.
