At the lake...

our first day at the lake! I can't begin to describe the feeling when we lay out the blankets and towels, set up the sun shelter, and put your toes in the lake for the first time each summer. It is like you are back to a place where your heart has been missing. A place where time and worries can be put on hold. Where wonderful memories come back and the excitement of making new ones warms your soul. Yes i know some of you may think I am crazy it is just camping after all. For me it is so much more it is a part of my husbands history and his dad too of camping there. It is a vacation where the entertainment is not tv ,video games or Internet. There is no lines to wait in and my cell phone didn't even work in camp. I didn't really ever care to know what time it was or if the kids had ice cream for lunch. What I do know is it is full of laughter, and family!

I'm so very glad you get to have vacation-family time like that. I know it is wonderful to just relax and enjoy family and make wonderful memories that you all will cherish for years to come. What a blessing and your kids' faces reflect that too.
