Gone Fishing!

Posted by in all posts

My kids and I went the the lake.  A beautiful little lake in the middle of Wisconsin to visit my Sister, Mom and Dad for some quality family time, lots of nature, fishing, swimming and boating.  I had intended to post while I was there  – but the wireless connection was not working and the Verizon network was spotty.  So, it ended up being a technology-less vacation.  No iPads, Mac Books, Androids, PSP’s.  It was pretty nice.

There were lots of good old fahsioned lake activites.  I grew up in Wisconsin which has tons of lakes.  Virginia has almost no lakes.  So I really like for my kids to get this classic small lake experience.  We have made it a tradition to go each summer to visit Auntie Dana and Uncle Matt’s lake house.

Here are a few pics.  It was all about the kids!

Brinn got really comfortable in the lake this year.

The water trampoline was lots of fun!

Eagle sightings, elk, lots of fresh air.  It was wonderful.  Now on to the unpacking, soggy lake laundry and catching up on 400 emails.  Back to reality.


  1. Awesome! Where were you? If you were close, I would have hooked up with you. Looks like a fun time was had by all. Those kids are beautiful!
    Enjoy the day!

  2. Thanks for sharing – Looks like a wonderful time! It’s good to disconnect the ‘electricity’ every once in a while and take in the world and people around us. It’s usually much more beautiful and rewarding than ‘cyber-time’ could ever hope to be! And, I agree w/Erin above, your kids are lovely – wish mine son was still this little at times,..the teenage years are upon me and it’s a whole new world out there now! LOL!!

  3. Looks llke a fabulous time and I think we all need a break now and then from the immediacy of technology and it’s demands. Beautiful photos!!
    We used to have a party barge- loved it- we camped out on it on Lake Mead. Miss it terribly.

  4. Wow, Looks amazing! Your children are so adorable!
