The Lake Saga Volume Two: Perils of Easy Living

While it may seem that lake living is just one long relaxing day after another, the truth is that a lot of work goes into achieving that perfect zen glow. To prepare ourselves for the torturous day's events, we always begin our morning with a hearty breakfast.

After fueling ourselves, there is no time to just laze away the morning. Oh no. The children must quickly begin their chores. First up: securing dinner.

Despite valiant efforts, the fishing team was unable to catch a suitable dinner. Somehow, we suffered through. There was much gluttony involving hamburgers, pulled pork, potato salad, banana pudding and zucchini bread. Many mouths received quite a workout on this day--all in the name of lake living of course.

After lunch, some were scheduled to continue their industrious ways lakeside. There was much to be done including digging...

and rock skipping.

There were a few however that were forced to lounge about on the deck and take in the mountain air.

What can I say? It's a rough life.

    Nice recap!

    Love all the pics and commentary. After such a busy day, I needed time to relax like Gran....alas, it was not to be.

    Thanks again, for having us. I had a great time!

  2. Thanks for humoring me and my silly stories. I'm sure most people wonder why I can't just post a picture without all the blab. lol

    Naps outside are one of my most favorite things in the whole world. But, as I'm sure you're aware, small children make them darn near impossible. lol

    I'm glad that you were able to come. Hope you can make it next time too!
