Life is better on the lake
Hands down, best FHE. We love going to the lake with friends, but were itching to have an outing with just our family, and an empty lake on a beautiful evening was just what we needed. Without the distraction of friends, sports, TV, wii, computer, legos, dance and homework, Kylie and Jayden discovered that they are still best friends after all. I loved seeing them laughing and talking together. I wanted to bottle it up. I wanted to bottle up the whole evening. The Beastie Boys robot dance party, riding the tube with Kylie, the two babies rocked to sleep by the waves, Jayden's totally rad hair when he goes on the tubes, the picnic on the beach, the kids going on a nature walk and then being informed by a passing boater that the area was infested with skunks (apparently the rustling in the bushes weren't birds after all), Jason swimming after the boat since I was too busy analyzing pictures of me in a swimsuit (I was tan for all of one week this summer) and didn't notice it floating away and a beautiful sunset reflecting on the water. I'll leave out the fighting on the way home and the groundings and skip to them deciding to be buddies again. Snuggled up on a chair with their feet propped up by an open window, doing their homework and discussing the scientific evidence that wearing 3D glasses with the frames popped out really do make you smarter. Yep, definately a bottled up worthy evening.
