Beach Time!!

Pin It
I have a picture of Lucas hanging in the hallway at home from when he was about 10 years old at the beach.  He is sitting with a buddy with their backs to the camera and the lake in front of them.  It is one of my favorite pictures with the two of them enjoying the serenity of the water while discussing the complications of life.....well, it was probably more like the strategies of a video game but a Mom can hope right?

While Lucas and Sarah were here, we all headed to the beach on the first of July to enjoy the festivities but instead found a deserted stretch of water.  Around here most people own cabins and head up to them with family and friends which has greatly reduced the amount of people at the public beaches and parks.



Lucas and Sarah didn't mind.  They enjoyed the quiet.  Sarah had been wanting to go swimming for a long time and this was her chance.....however, she doesn't know how to swim.  She still had fun playing in the water in-between some sketchy swimming lessons from Lucas.  

We enjoyed a picnic first and while deciding if the water was warm enough, both Sarah and Lucas sat on the edge of the water .... picture perfect once again!  I quickly snapped a shot.


Now this one will replace the other....or maybe hang side by side.  There is something about this shot that warms my heart.  

And this shot, well this shot will be printed upon canvas as a Christmas present for them I think.  


Remember to give your loved ones a hug!

    Such a trubute to you as a Mom that a simple easy day means so much to him. Sarah seems to really make him happy.

  3. Ahhhh ... those lake pictures tug at my heart. I so miss Minnesota lake country. Not the mosquitoes or the humidity but the quiet and peacefulness of the lake. And it sounds as tho it is in your DNA as well.

    1. I am sure you do miss the lake. It was awfully humid today and the mosquitoes are those little tiny buggers that bite like crazy so I don't blame you for not missing them. :D
