I spent last week up north at my family's cabin in Minocqua, Wisconsin.
Macy loved it per the above picture.
If you want the detes and background on this family property, I wrote about it here.
If you're fine with just looking at this pic and moving on with your life, that's cool too.
Aunt Jules and Mace pondering life.
A Minocqua staple.
Just terrible terrible food. But a staple nonetheless.
I've often said I have no investment in what Macy becomes when she grows up as long as she's healthy and happy. I realize now that that's a lie. I want her to be on , The Min-Aqua Bats - Minocqua's Water Ski Team. If she completes just one season as a Min-Aqua Bat, then I won't care what she does. She can become a drug addict for all I care, or if I'm being greedy, a dealer - as that at least shows a little hustle and entrepreneurism. But a Minocqua Bat first....k, Mace? #compromise
Everyone knows we're sisters but only few know we're twins.
Macy and her baby cousin, Roman, who she for the most part, didn't like.
Whenever I held him she'd scream, throw herself at my feet, and cry "MY momma".
It was very dramatic but great for my self esteem.
Breakfast downtown. I broke out my 99 Problems script after months dormancy while Macy doctored up her water with various jelly tubs and sugar packets. Other restaurant patrons seemed to judge me from not intervening in Macy's culinary process but I met their judging looks with mine own that said "as long as she's being quiet I don't give a fuck."
My brother's family. A very strange family but a family nonetheless.
Sibling boat ride. I'm sure my Grandpa is fondly looking down from heaven thinking "those kids are a hot mess" which, guilty as charged, but I'm sure he also finds our love for the house flattering as its essentially love for him, our childhood, and wanting to re-create the magic of Minocqua for our own kids.
