Fun at the Lake Part I

One of our highlights this summer is visiting and enjoying a lake house. My parents bought some land near a lake in Tennessee, and my brother whipped them up a beautiful house on it. When I say "whipped up," I mean it. He's so talented. It's beautiful, and he built it in a couple of months.
It's on a steep incline, making a great place for a swing.
It's a great place to spend time with cousins. Thanks, Grandma and Grandaddy, for sharing it with us. Thanks, Uncle Tim, for building it! I'll post some pictures of the house later.

Summer houses . . . . Ahh. My kids have memories of a rented summer condo on the beach every year with my mom and dad. I have memories of "summer houses" (if you want to call it that) down on the bayou in Louisiana during the summer . . . (Trust me that is a totally different experience than beach or lake.) My grandparents were from Louisiana. I wouldn't trade that for anything . . .

My grandfather lived on a houseboat on the Mississippi River with seven brothers and sisters when he was growing up . . . Running trotlines and catching beaver and squirrel for their skins. :) In fact, my grandparents spent their honeymoon camped out on the river bank.

That is what this posts reminds me of . . . More wonderful memories for you and your kids!! Thanks for sharing these things.
