Life on Cottage Hill: PAGES

weekends on the lake.

I'm sure my response to, "how are you liking your new house?" is reaching the point of being obnoxious. We love it! So much! And we are just so lucky. It honestly feels like we're on vacation every weekend and every evening after work for that matter. Somehow while work life continues to get more intense, living here helps balance it out. Having Amy and my mom here to take care of the babies is a big part of that too. I've been finding little surprises of folded, clean laundry, dishes put away, little things organized around the house after long days in the office. Those things are certainly not expected but they can make a stressful day turn around pretty quickly. 

Friday night at the beach. 

Boating Saturday afternoon with our neighbors. So fun! 

Jonah bear loved the boat ride, but not so sure about driving. 

Saturday night was outdoor movie night at the "big park" as Jackson and Audrey call it. 

Big Hero 6 was up on the big screen and these two loved it... until Jackson passed out half way through, exhausted from a day full of swimming. 

Sunday after church we had some friends over to play. The kids swam off the dock, went on paddle board and kayak rides, played in the sprinkler, you name it. I'm not sure who had more fun, the little kids or the big kids (aka dads). 

After all the fun Jonah was ready for an early bed time. While I was putting him down I asked Dan to give Jackson and Audrey dinner. When I came back downstairs Audrey was eating soup in the dining room on her own. Where were the other two? I looked around and finally looked outside and found this... they just couldn't get themselves to come inside for good and were outside again on the paddle board as the sun set.  

And, obviously, you cannot end a summer weekend without a trip to get ice cream... even if that doesn't happen until well after bed time.
