I have many childhood memories that revolve around going to the lake. As a child, I don’t think I realized what a special treat it was to enjoy a break from the norm down at the lake. The lake offers a place of quiet with a beautiful view.
Daniel and I also have special memories of the cabin at the lake – we spent afternoons with family there during the early months of our relationship. We have wonderful memories sitting down on the dock together while Dad grilled and Mom prepared food in the kitchen. Daniel and I even spent part of our honeymoon down at the lake. :)
Though Patrick and Erin are too young to enjoy the water or boat rides yet, we have already taken them to the lake many times. Patrick loves to explore and look at the pine cones. Erin is generally content to absorb everything from wherever she is placed. :)
Following the trend of spending part of a holiday at the cabin, we enjoyed one evening of July 4 weekend down at the lake for a family cookout.
