Family time in the summer has always incorporated going to our family cottage just outside of Pittsburgh. Spanning back to as long as Andrea can remember, her family has been going to our cottage on summer weekends. It’s nothing fancy, just a small cabin with no heat or A/C and plenty of room for friends and family to come up and relax.
About 11 years ago when Ryan and Andrea started dating, she introduced him to the cottage and it soon became a favorite of his as well. Andrea likes to nap in the hammock, kayak, and hike with our dog. Ryan enjoys fishing and visiting the nearby college where he attended. We all play cards together pretty much every night and enjoy a good campfire and smores.
In this picture, Andrea’s family members are each wearing a [VERY nerdy] visor that represents an interest of thiers. This was a gag gift for Christmas a few years back. Andrea’s has turtles on it because she loves to swim and Ryan’s has chili peppers because he enjoys cooking.
