Cabin in the Woods (Day 2)

On our second day at the cabin (or first full day if you count days like the British count floors in a building), Jacob woke me up early (5:30 a.m. local). We watched some videos and saw the sun rise over the lake.

Later on, when other people woke up, we had some breakfast and then went outside to have some fun on the swing. Jacob and Grandpa had lots of adventures outside, visiting the tree house, wandering the trails, picking up sticks, and other fun.

While Jacob and Grandpa were outside, Lucy played inside with Granny, first building a massive construct out of Legos and then, when everyone downstairs was awake, playing grocery store with the plastic food.

When Jacob came back in, we started playing lightsaber fights. That was a lot of fun for me and yet another bit of Star Wars for Jacob.

These sabers made noises like in the movies, but I made noises too!

Parrying the blow

We may break down soon and let him watch the first movie. It's time to have that conversation with my wife!

The day was quite relaxing, ending with a bit of zombie mayhem as I taught Nate and Helen how to play Grave Business, a fun zombie game that would come back again the next evening.
