The past week has been just such a blissful family centered whirlwind of fun. As much as I do love the beach, the lake house turned out to be absolutely perfect for my little family this year. We laughed and enjoyed each other’s company and just really unplugged for 7 wonderful days. Also, since it had wifi and a complete FIOS package, I didn’t miss a single minute of NOVA or other highbrow documentary type shows. The tv also got left on some network by mistake one night, or maybe two and I saw something called Bachelor in Paradise. Disgusting! I can’t imagine why people watch this kind of trash!
Last night was our final one at the lake. Röbert took the children out for a canoe trip/treasure hunt he had made up. They had to find things like “the tallest tree” or “the rock that looks like a bear”. Ridiculous, but it kept them all entertained for a bit. We had a campfire when they got back and Röbert had, in fact, bought hot dogs. Who eats hot dogs? I guess my kiddos did last night, along with corn on the cob and a potato salad. It was like a nightmare dinner, and I couldn’t watch them eat it without feeling like I was going to throw up, so I went inside and watched Dateline, which is also kind of trashy, but better than potato salad.
I could hear them out there, laughing and singing until late, then Röbert, of course, got them all wound up with a scary story. I don’t know what he was thinking. He had to get up all night to settle them down.
Anywho, I am exhausted now, and need a vacay from my vacay! I think I will maybe meet up with Cari and Krystyn tonight for some civilized cocktails at a new fancy lounge that opened up downtown.
