My apologies for the silence. We had our annual work-cation at the lake house – that time every year when Lucas spends a week planning, organizing, and preparing for the upcoming year at the church…while the twins and I enjoy a relaxing vacation. The one thing about lake house week is that we have no internet. I made sure to schedule some posts for the time we were gone (to continue the flow and prevent a large gap between posts - haha). I took the time to edit the pictures at the lake house so they would be ready to upload and go. I even wrote out posts in word documents so I could just copy and paste and publish! Easy peasy! Except…it turns out that I sort of love not having internet. It is delightful what I can get accomplished when I'm not distracted by facebook or e-mail or blogs! And since we had all sorts of busyness when we returned home, and it involved a lot that needed to get accomplished, I simply kept going as if I had no internet. Sorry, grandparents. I know you are the ones the long silences hurt the most…
And now the posts that I pre-wrote seem completely irrelevant, so I’m starting fresh (fewer stories, more pictures).
We had a blast! Our time, of course, involved a LOT of swimming:
This year we took some rides on the peddle paddle boat. The twins also enjoyed jumping off the back...
We also did a lot of hiking,
and playing in the grassy field.
This year we even took the time to get a picture next to the big totem pole!
Look at their excitement!
There was a lot more…but I discovered that, if I included it all in 1 post, it would have 26 pictures…and that is a little ridiculous. Hopefully this will tide the grandparents over until the next post. I promise it will pop up soon!
