Summer at the Lake

 Summer at the Lake

Sharing some pics of our summer at our lakehouse cottage....

Spending Time on the Water!
As always, swimming is the best way to stay cool!
Our dogs love the boat rides!! (Blankets mandatory.)
Family gatherings
 Swimming and kayaking 
 Hubby kayaking on the lake.

Enjoying campfires and food!
S'mores, of course
Fresh strawberries for dessert!

 i made a new sign for our porch/entrance. 
Hubby is a BIG rock collector...this year he added these giant rocks as landscape around our yard lighthouse.
 Hubby built a new table for our pontoon boat!
I love how he customized the cup-holders to hold our favorite cups.

Gardening is a favorite pastime.
 Our back patio and pergola.
 Our Wisteria had lots of blooms!
 Many annuals in our baskets and pots.
 My mini-fairy garden...with a camping/fishing theme.
 My mini-flag says it all!
