Child's Lake with the Woods' Family

Our friends have the cutest little cabin up at Child's lake in Duck Mountain park in Manitoba. We finally got around to actually visiting them today.... I'm sure the first of many visits there! The lake was very cold still but the kids had a lot of fun anyways.... Here's some pictures from the day....
