Going to the Lake...

There have been some questions as to our weather, and going to the lake. Well, outside right now it is 72 beautiful, sunny degrees. When I say we are going to the lake, I don't mean we are going swimming or boating! We enjoy standing on the shore or a dock and throwing in a fishing line (or pole in Bethany's case)...grilling out, running around the quiet lakeside...making it not so quiet! We enjoy listening to the birds, counting the rabbits we see, watching for deer...lots of fun stuff to do. Some days during the summer, we do go swimming in the beach area, but most evenings we just enjoy the beautiful scenery. It is so amazing to look at the surroundings and realize we are in the plains, but the area surrounding the lake does not look very flat. There are bluffs, cliffs, valleys...it is beautiful! If we get out there early enough, I will take lots of pictures!

Hubby is on his way home from a meeting that was 2 1/2 hours away, and he's still about an hour away right now. I'm trying to get everything ready to go. By the 4th or 5th time we go each year, I have all my stuff for the lake all together and it's just a matter of putting it in the car. However, since this is our first trip, I have to locate everything that has been put away since the fall. Hopefully I'll have it all ready by the time hubby gets home and he can just change clothes and we can hop in the car and be off!

Lake...here we come!

Just in case you are curious...here are some pics I took the last time we were at the lake in October...

Hope you had a wonderful time! 72 degrees sounds just heavenly to me :) Yesterday it was warm enough to bundle up and go out on the porch with my kiddos and daycare kiddos for about 20 minutes and go on a walk so it was a nice respite for the freezing weather and rain we have been having(without hats or gloves) but today I awoke to it snowing again! So, send a little warmth and sunshine my way will you? :)
