This summer flew by at record speed. We were able to sneak away to one of our favorite places, Lake Eufaula, a few times this summer.
My husband spent most of his childhood summers at his grandparents’ lake house. He has the very best memories of that place. Anytime we have a few days to get away (which isn’t often enough), this is where he wants to go. Mark’s mother, step-father, and grandmother live in the cabin now. We don’t get to see them as often as we like so it is always nice when we go for a few day to visit.
The cabin is nestled in a cove on Lake Eufaula and has been a part of Mark’s family since the early 70’s. The cabin is beautiful, but my favorite part is getting away from everything. The internet is touch and go and it’s difficult to get phone service, so I make sure to take my bathing suit and a good book!
Tristyn LOVES it. She took her best friend, Summer, this year. They swam, fished, picked wild flowers and blackberries, and road the golf cart ALL DAY LONG. They spent the majority of the days outside…being kids!!
Tristyn and her cousins stayed a week with their Grandparents this summer, too, …and had a blast. I heard they had dessert after every meal….even breakfast! 🙂 Another weekend, Tori and Chad, met us there for a few days. I can’t believe I didn’t get ONE picture of that weekend.
I love the fact that we have “a place” to go to. A place to relax. A place to be with family. A place to create memories that will last a lifetime for our kids, just like their daddy.
I’m sad to see summer end, but I’m thankful for all the wonderful memories we created this summer!
