Another party at the lake

We arrived at the lake Friday evening, after a fun afternoon seeing new places.

We’ve been lucky to celebrate with our friends, 9 of the 13 birthdays.  We met when our oldest ones were 4, and seen them grow up to be the teenagers they are now it’s been a treat.

All the kids have grown up.

Friends, new friends, grandparents, doggies, all are around for a whole weekend.

They play all day long. Running, kicking the ball, the can, swimming, running, walking, laughing… all sounds of summer.

And of course, there’s The Fire.

Sitting there, chillin’.  Actually wearing up, resting, talking, listening to the kids still run around and play, even in the dark hours.

And besides all the catching up, the talking, the laughing, the conversations happening by the fire, in the kitchen, around the grill, there’s all the cooking and chopping and slicing of watermelon, and sharing of great foods and drinks in great company.

With all the delicious foods we all bring and share, I have to admit, when we see these cinnamon rolls made by grandma, coming out of the oven ohhhhh….. there’s silence.

Oh my.  Silence.  Complete silence.

Another day comes around, and there is more of the same delicious foods, talks and laughs and swims and boat rides and paddling and company.  What a weekend.

DSC_0286 copyOh yes! The views… look at this place, this is what we see while we eat breakfast, or when we get out of our tent, and when we go to sleep… hard to give our backs to.  So we don’t.

We can spend all day in the water.  I know we can.

There’s something to do for each one of us.  Besides the swimming, of course.
