We enjoyed a relaxing weekend at the lake with my parents and grandparents last week. The weather was crazy. One day we played outside, even shedding our jackets by afternoon. The following day it snowed!
I’m not a huge fan of water sports, so “off-season” lake time is usually my favorite. I love playing outside and enjoying the view, but don’t love swimming, applying sunscreen, or trying to keep up with 5 (or more) children in the water.
On the sunny day the kids searched for worms, went fishing, fed the neighbor’s chickens, learned croquet and played frisbee.
Being stuck indoors wasn’t bad at all. Watching the snow fall over the lake was beautiful. We visited with cousins, ate yummy food, enjoyed extra cups of coffee, played board games and cards, put together puzzles and the kids played in the ‘clubhouse’ and Grandma’s dress up box.
