Loving the Lake: highlights from our week

Because I am at the lake, obviously I can’t be bothered to type in full paragraphs.  Instead I will just share with you a bulleted list of some quality lake-side moments with the fam this week.

  • David discovering his secret talent at Yahtzee
  • The neighbor girl getting a butterfly net stuck on her head
  • Rachel’s super creepy hood on her super cute shirt 
  • Rachel asking, “Do I need to wear pants?”  which out of context is amazing.
  • Fishing 
  • Seeing an Eagle catch a fish in the water
  • Seeing what we are pretty sure is a volcano erupting over the tree line 
  • David convincing me that one of the loons is all brownish because of an oil spill
  • My mom suggesting that for their anniversary, she and my dad go tubing together while I drive the boat – my dad replying by offering to go fill up the tube.  I don’t like to drive the boat, but I might have done it to see that
  • The moment in which I thought I saw a giant purple Care Bear waving at me from shore.  (clearly I was not wearing my glasses).  After I blinked, I realized it was hanging purple flower plant things.
  • Celebrating Rachel’s birthday with angry faces that her friend already got her the same gift as us.
  • My dad trying iced coffee.  He concedes it is better than lukewarm coffee.
  • The time us kids went out for a boat ride and my brother cautioned me to wear my rain jacket.  Then THIS happened.  And yes, I was the only one in the boat who was wet. 
  • Playing Boggle with “Zach” and “Meredith” (we clearly couldn’t be bothered to change the names on the ipad)
  • Lining up on the front porch, facing the lake, reading books (we were in chairs, not lined up like the Von Trapp children…)
  • Having Muskrat Love in our heads all week long after our nature sighting. 
  • Watching the neighbor girl push her brother’s clothes into the fire pit
  • Watching Pippi Longstocking (ok, I only watched like 10 minutes because of the spotty internet, but it was an amazing 10 minutes of standing in the middle of the room, next to my brother, holding my ipod at the perfect angle to get maximum internet bars while my brother did the same thing trying to download ipad games)
  • Googling things like Psalty the Singing Song Book and singing along in efforts to be fully prepared for our week at the cabin 
  • Watching the neighbor boy push his TINY little wheelbarrow filled with beer cans down to the recycling
  • Dad making delicious breakfast for us every day (Speaking of, Dad – I’m feeling a bit hungry now.  Could you come make me some pancakes please?)
  • Ice Cream!  (this is the before picture, when things are going well.  I will start taking ice cream eating lessons soon, because not long after this picture was taken, I somehow broke my cone in multiple places, causing it to ooze ice cream everywhere and eventually forcing me to abandon my ice cream eating efforts) 
  • Spending time with my family
  • Perfecting the art of relaxation

  1. This post was so hilariously random.
    I think I want to know more about this neighbor girl and setting her brother’s clothes on fire. I wish I would have done that to my brother so many times.

  2. Drew has mad ice cream cone eating skills. For real. You should ask him about it and maybe he could teach you a few things. 🙂
