Balsam Lake 2010

So, since I am on a bloggy roll, I decided to finish the Balsam Lake pictures I had downloaded like a month ago. Enjoy! It was super fun with all the Marquard Fam and we can't wait for next year.
This is how we kept Preston quiet on the way to Balsam Lake, Wisconsin. We didn't let him eat the whole container of Pringles, just half :) He really was a good rider though, slept most of the time.
Love the sunsets at the lake

Row, row, row the boat

Ride on Great Uncle Randy's boat!

Campfire at night
This picture makes me want to go back right now- it was so relaxing!

Preston loved touching the fishies and throwing them back in the water
Looking at the big fish that Great Uncle Jeff caught- and beautiful sunset in the background

One evening, there was a bad storm. It was pretty scary and we had to sit in between the door frame because we thought the windows might crash in. When we went into town, there was a lot of damage- trees uprooted and roofs blown off. You can see how weird the sky looks in this picture.

Our cabin

Preston caught his first fish
"Ooh Daddy, I can see it!"
"Yay, a fish!"
"Look at my fish."
"I'll just take the hook out myself."
Papa rigged this little pole with a fish so Preston could catch it :) It was so fun for him that he threw the pole back in about 10 times and caught it again!
Paddle boat ride- Mommy, Pres, and his aunties paddled out to a water trampoline and Preston was not afraid to jump on it or jump in the water. Our brave little fishy!
Fun with Chalk- his hat says, "Grandpa's Fishing Buddy."
