At the Cottage with Bugs

The cottage with bugs is inevitable, right? Not everyone is a fan of bugs, however and bugs don’t love all people equally either! Oh, those bugs….I’m all for equality! Spread the love, will you?

My daughter is a prime example of this. Mosquitoes absolutely adore her! We always joke that she is super sweet and that is why the bugs love her so much.

Those bug bites on the back of her legs are just the start of our cottage trip last summer!

Aside from the bugs, I am a HUGE fan of going to the cottage. When I was a baby, my parents rented a cottage every summer. My summers growing up are filled with memories of swimming and running around in our bathing suits from morning until dusk! I also have may memories of the cottage with bugs too! When I was in Grade 9, my parents purchased a cottage that was accessible by boat. Again, many fond memories of that cottage and the years we spent there including me running a Swim Program across the lake and having to cross the lake by boat to get to work every day, despite the weather. After that cottage, my parents decided to build a summer home (what was to be their place of retirement, but that plan changed) on the road access side of the lake. This is the cottage that I visit with my kids every summer. It has already become a part of their summer memories and is a very special place.
