Hello blogging friends...I missed you! Actually, that's not entirely true. I missed my computer the first two days and then...I remembered life B.B (before blogging). I also remembered I was on vacation! It was wonderful!
We spent a whole week sharing space with my in-laws in a lovely cottage on a nice lake. We shared many, many good meals, soaked up a lot of sun, and talked and talked and talked (my fav...the "question of the day"). The kids had a terrific time playing in the sand, going on boat rides and even trying out tubing! There were many fish that ended up on the end of our poles, mini-epic battles with their flashing scales shining as they were dragged aboard. (actually, they were kinda teeny, but it sounds better this way).
I had so many times where I wished that I wrote down what was said by little ones, because as I look back, I have this feeling that I was laughing...a lot. We laughed at the kids and at each other, but also with the kids and each other. We reminisced and planned, and sometimes we actually slept. It was a great way to pass seven days....playing, laughing and loving being with family. I know it's something we can't do every year, or even every other year, but it always reminds me that these are the moments that the Lord created us for, the ones where we get to share in community with family. I love you family and thanks for making it a great, great time!
