In response to your question, if you have a list of food items you are bringing, it would help us not to duplicate. Since there is limited space in the car and at the cottage, we don't want more than we need. Mexican sounds great.
Thanks - we are looking forward to being together up north. Ken wants to bring Raven. We will keep her outside and only in if it rains and then she will be confined to the kitchen. Will this be a problem with Mike and/or Emma? If so, we'll leave her at home.
