the cottage provided so much adventure for the cousins on our past visit!
there were atv rides, wild chipmunks to be caught (or not),
scavenger adventure hunts to scrounge through,
tree forts to bang away at 'til dusk,
not to mention snake-handling
(and frog handling, toad handling, bug poking, bloodsucker avoiding, and fishing).
so grandma and i hostessed a dress-up tea, complete with pickle and cheeze whiz roll-ups,
checkerboard finger sandwiches, and creampuffs.
the little savages all cleaned up very nicely, had great manners,
and chipped neither teeth nor teacups.
but it might have been more of a girl thing.
