I have the Lake on the brain today.
We took the kids out on the boat last week. It was Baby Mikey's first time. We all had a blast! All three of the big kids were jumping off the back --
(man, Kelly is fearless)
I am sure I wasn't the only one thinking that Robyn (my mother-in-law) would have loved it too.
But today I am missing our place there.
I miss the casualness of it.
I miss the kids feeding the deer.
I miss the dog running around (and the dog)
I miss the view.
Maybe I am just feeling extra girly today, because to me, it was a romantic place to be.
My husband is a romantic guy who doesn't realize he is romantic ~
He is always doing things for me and never complains about anything I do.
And he just loves me.
So yeah, he and I are never really alone. Like alone without kids. I mean, they are downstairs right now, but they are here, right? The place at the Lake was small, so they were even closer -- but the Lake always makes me think of us. Like us as a couple.
I even miss driving up there.
(I am crossing my fingers that Mike doesn't figure out how floopy and girly I am right now. If he catches on, the rest of the afternoon will be unbearable with his teasing!)
