lake harriet

It's not Disneyland.
It's not a glamorous summer vacation or a long-distance road trip.
It's Lake Harriet and it's free and it's just a hop skip and a jump away from where we live.
It's simple picnic, a lazy afternoon, and dip in the lake.
It's cool summer breezes, sandy shoes, and strawberry stains.
It's a little boy who loves to splash and wants to drink the whole lake. Mmmm...
It's a break from the daily grind and a time to just be a little family.
Yet somehow, it's just as magical.

What a great place to kick back and hang out with your two boys. I love watching dads/sons play with each other--looking at their faces tells me that they are so full of love for each other. God bless your handsome men and here's to many more fun trips together!

Looks amazing! :) (and Disneyland has been in the high 90's...not a place to be in the dead of summer!) ;)
