Some Time Away

Our family has been crazy busy with everything from sudden bouts of horse illness to car and air conditioner break downs to the stresses of finding a new job and a host of other things.  Last weekend we were too busy with life to give Dad a good Father's Day so we decided to celebrate this weekend.  We all needed some time away from the craziness that is life, so we packed up some fried chicken and all the fixins and headed to our favorite camp spot - Shores Lake.

First up, we had a WONDERFUL time swimming in a great spot we found in the creek.  Jake had such a blast!  I was so glad he enjoyed it so much... I felt like he really deserved a special treat after living with chickens day in and day out without eating a single one!  He's such a good boy.  :)



Then we took a little hike down a back road.  I snapped a few pictures of the flowers and Ben took a few pictures, too!
Hiking!
Mimosa tree.





At the close of our beautiful day, we fixed up some cold chicken sandwiches and had a little picnic on the side of Shores Lake.  It was so pretty!!  A truly relaxing way to spend a Saturday.




Oh how I love the great outdoors filled with all of God's creations!

  2. What a beautiful place to hike! Nothing like that here in Indiana. We get excited about a couple of hills and creeks at the state parks, but that's about it. Of course, your pictures are fantastic, and really make me want to visit Shores Lake! The dogs are adorable, and so happy to be out in nature, too.

    1. Thanks! One of my favorite things about "getting away" is getting to take pictures of new and different things. Jake and Arwen were thrilled to get some free time in the wide open spaces!
