To celebrate this middle of summer season and the month of august, and just because we really really needed to, we set out last week to one of our favorite nearby lakes. Past the back of the lake, up the river, deeper into the forest.
For a while it rained, it poured, it hailed. Then it cleared up and we had a few of hours of sunniness by the river.
We stopped at the back of the lake where the river is flowing in (the lake is very very low right now) on our way home so the girls could could have a little extra running around time. Jason and I watched from a distance. I am so happy for all the days like this that they get to have.
Earlier when we were sitting beside the river I said how nice it was that we got to enjoy the sun and the storm too on this day. And then I hoped that maybe we would even have some fog later. And then we did. It was wet, rainy, and grey all the way home. It was all wonderful.
It feels so good to be in this later part of the season. I hope you have all been enjoying beautiful August days too!
