It was time for our annual Lake Weekend. .
We usually go south to a large lake in northern Oklahoma. .
but, to make sure we weren't missing out on anything. .
we deviated from our normal path and went north. .to northern Kansas. .
to spend the weekend at Wilson Lake instead.
It was a loooooong way. .
taking us nearly 4 hours by the time we stopped to eat lunch and get the rest of our supplies. .
It was enough car time to develop a profound need to move around. .
in whatever form that took on. .
We were glad for a nice paved road for Devin and Cami's scooters. .
but the big bonus was the hill angling down toward our camp. .
that just screamed at everyone. .kids and adults alike. .to try and take it on!
The temperatures couldn't have been better for sitting around enjoying friends and nature. .but they weren't really good for watersports. .although most of the crew engaged in waterplay anyway! Not this old woman. .I deemed it WAY too cold. .besides. .the majority of the weekend was spent with my sweatshirt on. .and there is just something wrong about putting a lifejacket on OVER a sweatshirt. .am I right?
While some of the crew played in the water. .others of us sat, visited, read, napped, and played on the shore! I finished the book I was reading. .Courageous. .an excellent fiction story!! And Cami made some new friends on Sunday. .from across the state. .that happened to know some of Jeremy's extended family!! A small world or WHAT???
It is always a lot of work to load up. .
and even more work to UNLOAD. .wash. .and repack our tubs to be ready for the next trip!!
But it is worth it to enjoy a weekend reconnecting with friends, family, nature, and simplistic living!
So, Bye for now. .
Hope you enjoyed the excursion via photo!!
Blessings for you week. .
and thanks for stopping in!
