our day at the lake




This past week #3 and I were fortunate enough to be invited to spend the afternoon with our dear friend Melaine of My Sweet Savannah fame and her family on the lake they live on.  After the intense heat we have been suffering through, it was quite a treat to spend time floating on their beautiful and very quiet lake, with its private beach.  Heavenly~






Our lovely hostess~

That looks so refreshing. What a treat for kids, going to the lake... all that wonderful mud squishing between your toes. And a private beach... sweet :-) I wonder if you wore a pretty vintage bathing suit? Pleasant weekend, friend.

Well I have the aussie chills right now also.. but it's not too cold. But come our summer I am sure I will be wishing for something like this also. Looks like you had a glorious day and just what was needed during your heatwave! Keep Cool. Julie

I thought that was a picture postcard, the first shot. How totally dreamy.

Would love to have a lake like that one.

How fun! I would love to live on a lake in the summer. My aunt and uncle had a place on the lake and I remember spending time there in the summer. I have such great memories from being there!

Now if only an iceburg would have mysteriously appeared to lay upon & give you a dose of sweet relief.
I so feel your pain Kim. This is only my second summer in AZ & frankly YUCK!!!!
I'd love to live in your neck of the woods ...just need the right Powerball numbers...
