A Day Away

Yesterday morning, my mom, Summer, Camryn, and I headed out to the country. My mom's best friend since childhood, Gail, and her husband Bill, inherited Bill’s childhood home, a huge old house on a lake, from Bill’s mom when she passed away.

Bill’s mom had a love of things fancy and ornate. The house is full of statues, antiques, crown molding… it’s kind of indescribable actually. Maybe some day I’ll ask them if I can take a bunch of pictures to share with you all.

One thing the girls loved was this old dollhouse. It had the neatest, fanciest dollhouse furniture you can imagine.

IMG_8347editIMG_8341edit IMG_8350editWe parked the boat on the shore and got out to take a dip in the water.IMG_8360editIMG_8353editAfter our boat ride, we came back to eat lunch and play some more. The girls found some treasures under the magic bridge!IMG_8377edit IMG_8379edit IMG_8387editIMG_8409edit We are so lucky to have all of these neat places we can go to get away for awhile!

I love that dollhouse!

I want a Pontoon boat. I've been trying to talk Kevin into buying one for years. We used to have a speed boat.

Have a good weekend.
