Casey and Derek are back but nothing has changed, they are still at each other's throats, and still have "sibling" rivalry. The only good thing about it all is that it's summer vacation, and everyone is planning on going on a trip to Casey and Lizzie's grandmother's lakefront lodge for the summer. But their plans get a little messed up when Derek is forced into going by his dad. Things get even more messed up when Casey has to ride with Derek to the Blue Heron Lodge. On their way up there they get pulled over by the cops, meanwhile Edwin, Lizzie, Marti, Nora and George have already arrived. They soon find out that when Nora's mom said she wanted her grandchildren to visit, she meant her blood grandchildren, but agrees to let them stay, while George and Nora head for Montreal. Soon Derek and Casey get to the lodge but get stopped by Edwin who informs them about what's happened. After this, Derek says he wants to leave, Casey takes his keys, and he starts running after her. That's when Derek meets Felicia. One thing leads to another and Derek starts dating the competing lodge's daughter, then he soon realizes that it wasn't the best thing to be doing, and he breaks up with her. Meanwhile, Casey meets Jesse, a waiter at the lodge dining area, and they both love to dance and start dancing. Meanwhile, Edwin gets hurt, Lizzie meets a guy, and Marti finds a lizard.
