We had a great time at the lake this past weekend. It’s so relaxing. I’m still trying to adjust back to real life. There’s something about the water, the trees, the wildlife and the slow sonorous pace that just melts you down. I think I could have slept all weekend.
Madison had a blast. She passed her test and got a Missouri Boater’s permit. Which meant that she and her friend Hollie could go out on the waverunner by themselves. They went hard at it -tubing, swimming, sunning, boating and on the waverunner – which meant they were pretty much dead to the world by 10:00 each night.
Wendy and I enjoyed tooling around on the waverunner, too. But we generally go slower and like to look at all the houses and sights. Saturday night we took the boat over to our favorite restaurant on the water – Quackers. We played pool and listened to a great blues band until late. We motored back to the playhouse before midnight. The lake by moonlight is gorgeous.
And then there’s all of Grandma Jeanne’s sweets. Mmmmmmmmm.
