Never did I imagine I would spend more than one or two days a year at a lake. So here’s some evidence that you just never know what unexpected thing might be part of your life ten years from now: After going to the lake several times the last couple of summers, I really like it.
Since neither Brad or I grew up “going to the lake,” we’ve been learning outing by outing about how it works. We now have our lake tote packed with some essentials, we are starting to feel less stressed about trying to think of what we need to bring, and going to the lake for an afternoon doesn’t seem like some major, unusual event.
It’s just a relaxing few hours where we get to rub our feet in the sand and talk with friends.
Even better, the kids love it too!
We hope that yesterday was the last of our 100 plus degree temperature days for the summer, but we are sad that lake days are coming to an end for the year. I already have grand ideas for what we need to add to our “take to the lake” list for next year.
