first lake weekend of 2013

Last weekend, for Memorial Day, we spent time at Coldwater Lake, Michigan.  Here's a brief timeline of our families' time at the lake over the years:

1954: My grandparents go to Coldwater for their honeymoon.
Dorothy is such a babe.

1955-1985: My grandparents continue to go to the lake, renting the same cottage (almost) every time with their kids (my dad and aunts and uncles).

Dad, Tom, and Susie

Great-Grandma and a fish.

1986-2004: My parents start taking their kids to the lake, renting a house a few down from the one my dad used when he was a kid.  My uncles bought the cabin next door to the original cabin.

2012-present: We still own our cabin, and Luke's sister and brother-in-law bought one four houses down. Our family is taking over the island and it's great.
