family moments….

Let me tell you right now….i am not a fly by the seat of my pants type of girl.

I like routine.

I like organization.

I like a plan.

I actually have my planner sitting right next to me here at my desk.

So when we woke up on Monday morning…..i said aloud……let’s go up to Wisconsin….to a lake for

the day.

whaaaaaaaat.

did that just come out of my mouth?

me…..not have it planned and written down…..

so we flew around…gathered swimsuits and packed some lunches….

and headed north….

We spent all day at the lake…….reading books……building sand castles….swimming out to the dock…

{actually…i didn’t swim out to the dock…….somethings…i just don’t do….}

but the kids and bryan swam out to the dock…..and jumped…and dived.

It was a fabulous end to what most consider the end of summer.

My unplanned….unorganized self…….

my house is still a disaster……the suits are still wet on the floor……but i let myself go for a bit….

and in the car my children thanked us……

thanks mom and dad…..that was a great day.

I even thought on the way home that i indeed need a lake front cottage……nothing big or fancy….just someplace that we can take our kids every summer…..

with friends…….

and maybe a boat…..

now i’m getting carried away.

Have you ever seen the movie “the family stone”? That’s what i envision my home being like….lots of noise and fun….and being who we are meant to be…..

except….put that house on a lake….with a boat on the dock out back.

That’s not to much to ask for is it?

xo.

{Thank you so much for all the well wishes for my mom…she is finally home from the hospital..and i am going to print out the post with all of your comments and pop it in the mail to her….}

oh…and my pics were taken with my iphone…because someone…i’m not naming any names…left the battery charging in the charger for the camera.
