It only takes us a little over an hour to get there and we LOVE it!! The kids seem to catch endless amounts of little bluegills and sunfish. (Grandpa and Daddy built an extra wide dock for the kids). We have a blast swimming, kayaking and soaking up the warm sun.
We love that fact that it is a place where we can get away from all the busyness of life. It is a place where we can let our "hair down" and just enjoy our family and have fun. It is a place where the kids can walk around with kool-a*d mustaches and where it really doesn't matter what you look like in a bathing suit or how your hair looks.
We are able to just be us...and that is a great thing!
