What I did on my Summer Vacation by Tate

 For my summer vacation, we went to our cabin up in northern Wisconsin.  It’s a long drive and I was stuck in the back with Sam almost the whole entire time, except when she scrambled up in the front seat to bother my mom.
I knew where we were going when we were 50 miles away!  I could just smell the pine trees and lakes and I knew.  So I started crying because I was so excited!  But then we finally got there.  I jumped out of the truck and when Mom said, “Clear!” I ran down the hill straight into the lake.
I went swimming - a lot!


I taught Sam how to swim, too.
She kept on bugging me!
We were in the 4th of July Parade! I sat in the truck with Dad and we took this picture of the people watching the parade and catching candy that we all were throwing to them.
We went for boat rides every day
Then when we got tired we took a nap
All too soon, we had to leave. I can't wait until we go back.
But in the meantime, it’s all about NOW!*

  2. That looks like a good time! You will have to tell my pawrents where in Wisconsin you go, so they can take me up there to pawty too!

  3. Our cabin’s in Mercer (past the jet skis!) We love it, too. Friday night fish fries, pancake breakfasts, supper clubs, cheese curds, Leinenkugel, loons.

  4. Oh, Tate! What a fantastic summer vacation. I bet you had a great time – even if you had to take your bratty little sister with you. My Daddy says Leinenkugels is the best but he says I’m too young to drink.
