The Lake

There seems to be something about going to the lake that makes me feel all summery and nostalgic...like the 4th of July is just around the corner.   

Maybe it's because lakes are where summer camp happens and family reunions take place.  We never spent much time at the lake when we were little...except for one time when got to spend a week at Lake Michigan with my cousins.  We collected snails in plastic bags and hid them in our rooms until we wondered what that smell was :) We swam in inner tubes and watched the older cousins try jet skiing.  It was one of those vacations where you live in your swimsuit and your hair dries smelling of lake water.  Where your bronzed arms are always covered in sand and where all the cousins sleep piled in a heap on the living room floor.

I can't wait for Everdeen to have those summer memories :)


  1. What lake were you at? Looks like fun!

    1. We went to Lake Loveland...it has a very small beach, but perfect for Everdeen!

  2. I love those lake memories with the cousins! so much fun!

  3. Those are good memories. Summer is always nostalgic, more so than any other time of year, I think. Maybe because we're free from school and we have memories of long days and feet blackened from playing outside.
