The Lake 2013

The Dad's boss has a piece of property on a lake up near the Hood Canal.  We went the first weekend of September, for the third year in a row, with my parents and my sister's family.  It was for sale by owner last year, but this year he's got it on the market through a realtor, so it may have been our last trip.  Sad.  It's an amazing spot.

The kids thought they had died and gone to heaven.  They were all old enough this year, (minus Baby), to be off exploring and pretty much doing their own thing the whole time.  They chose to spend every waking moment in the water.

Here's our weekend in photos:

The three oldest kids went fishing with my BIL in the morning on Saturday, and they each reeled one in.

The rest of the day, they played.

The boys made a run into town for seafood (and the football game), and we had a big ol' feast for dinner.
Including the fishies that the kids caught.

Sunday was the nicest weather of the three days, of course, so the kids were back out in the water until it was time to head home.

I had to take a picture of this nasty slug.

Worth the weekend away from the kitchen mess.


  1. What a wonderful spot! To bad its up for sale! And what a great feast of food. YUM!

  2. What a great spot! Looks like everyone had a blast. I just adore those pics you take of the baby from behind. So sweet :)

  3. I love the Hood Canal but it has been awhile since I have been up there. I am so glad you had a wonderful time!! Your photos are beautiful!


I love and appreciate all your comments. So don't be shy, just say it!
