This is a picture taken of me as a toddler (in the early 1970's) at my family's lake cottage. We spent many a summer weekend there when I was growing up. My grandfather bought it as a young man by saving money he earned on the side from a paper route. I think that is just amazing!
I look a bit cranky here in this picture, but I am guessing that it was very hot and I wanted to get in the water! The expression on my face reminds me of the photo I used of my son for my Saturday Photo Hunt.
I wish that my family still had the old cottage. I would have loved to have been able to take my son there. Unfortunately, my grandparents passed away many years ago and the cottage was sold. However, I am blessed with a few special photos and many precious memories.
