my grandparents cabin
my grandparents cabin

This is my grandparents' cabin in Aitkin, Minnesota. This cabin has been in my family for 3 generations and has been an important part of my story, my moms story, and my grandparent's story. I have been going to this cabin every summer since I was little to visit my grandparents. This cabin is on a lake and is in a remote part of Minnesota. This is one of the first places I learned what community is and how it can be a vital part of human connection. Since this cabin is so remote, my grandparents, who live there full time now, are reliant on the other lake houses and the community that has been on this lake for generations. There Is a strong family relation on the lake and the recognition of past generations in the walls of the cabin. I have 4 cousins and 2 aunts and uncles that live on this lake with my grandparents and this place was an important part of my learning of my own family history and values. This cabin has brought my family through life, death, sickness, health and love and will always be an important part of my story.
