Dan and Friends at Lake



We arrived at the lake house late Friday night... Dan and his friends all the way from Buffalo...we were all exhausted after a grueling 4 to 5 hour trip in the pouring rain and fog....and went straight to bed....
It continued to rain all night long.....and all day long on Saturday....



It was a stay indoors day...
Michele worked on a puzzle while the rest of them played a marathon trivial pursuit game...



The rain let up once or twice....



But for the most part....it was a miserable day outside....fun and games inside...



Sunday, however, the sun shone! After breakfast...the "kids" took off in the boat to go water skiing and wake boarding....There they are in the boat....by the time I got to the dock to snap a picture...they had taken off down the lake...



I got them to pose for a picture just before their trip back to school....with a quick detour at The King of the Frosties for ice cream cones....they were off....

Law students, dental student and nutritionist in the making...it was great fun for us and for my parents to have these smart, articulate and fun loving young people at the lake for the weekend!

Hello Laura, how fun! So many of my blogger lady friends spent the weekend at the lake... I am envious! Looks like so much fun, sometimes a rainy day spent indoors is the best day of all... Bisous... Julie Marie

That is the best. I have very fond memories of my daughter bringing home her school friends. One of the guys wanted to cut the grass because he "missed" doing it for his parents. We were happy to show him how to work the mower!!!

What memories they must all have of your lakehouse :) Mine don't incl. a lakehouse but a huge trailor that slept 8-10 of us :) Can you imagine 6-8 kids of all ages talking till 3 in the morning and then ready to go to the lake or river by 7am...Goodness my parents must truly have loved us to have put up with us like that every summer :) But the memories I have in my heart are forever...Rose
