The lake house had all that and more because 1) there is no internet and 2) no cell reception. While that may sound like a teenagers nightmare, it is this mother's dream!! :) Fortunately, my kids were good sports and our friends were very generous in allowing us to use their lake house again. So we spent the first week of August - five relaxing days - truly together.
We enjoyed eight kayaks, one dock, a trip to Nauvoo (more on that later), loads of good food, plenty of games, music, movies (we got to share Kung Fu Panda 3 and Star Wars VII with Sam!), books, swimming, and laughing.
My dream of having my little family all to myself (all to ourselves) was realized and it was awesome! I hope we can do it again soon.
|Sadie loved this swing. The older kids were totally afraid of it. :)|
|Even during meals we had a beautiful view, but no bugs on the fully screened deck.|
|Savannah and Sterling put together some really cool guitar/violin duets.|
|Not a great picture, but one of my favorite parts was kayaking. I loved it when all eight of us were out together.|
|Savannah loved doing yoga on the dock, especially the day she was up with the sun.|
