Happy Memories

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 told them not to give any to poor Beefeater.  I have him on a vegan diet right now and who knows what those nasty things would do to his system!

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.
