I can’t remember the last time we were able to enjoy the long Memorial Day weekend at the lake. I also can’t remember when the weather was so great. We headed down on Friday and spent Saturday in Sioux Falls visiting my dear grandpa who had recently had surgery, and then spent Sunday and Monday soaking in the sun and the water.
Our time together made me feel very content and grateful. We walked Leo, played on the beach, skipped rocks, threw around the football, had a bonfire, watched sunsets, went for a few boat rides… It was the perfect way to bring in summer and I just remember feeling really happy. Maybe it’s something about when my kids are not on screens and actually enjoying the outdoors, maybe it’s just the simplicity of being together, maybe it’s the fact that we are making memories with them that they are not going to forget.
Here are a few photos from our two days. Darin even got a few of me with the kids. Looking forward to more summer days in this place with them.
