My family has a little tradition of visiting the town next door after dinner, which has a gorgeous lake (cleanest water in the state!), beautiful pier, and yummy coffee and ice cream shops. It’s something I have always looked forward to–if it’s a nice night, we head over there, pick up some treats, move a bench right by the lake edge, and chat. We go for a walk on the pier, look for fish, and if I’m around, take a lot of pictures. Fritz and I got a lot of pictures taken there after we got married. I just love hearing my dad ask, “wanna go to the lake?”, and the answer is always yes.
We took so many gorgeous pictures that I had to share.
Mom spotted a little bird peeking out of its house:
Here’s our spot on the bench:
Mom and I ran off to do a quick photo shoot because I told her I wanted a new picture for the front of my blog–sometimes serious, and sometimes not so much:
But always beautiful!
We caught a few fun moments and had a lot of genuine laughs:
And of course, Dad couldn’t get left out of the photo shoot entirely:
We meandered over to the pier as the sun was setting–the next picture is a little overexposed, but I still love it:
I love this next picture of my mom, because she looks exactly like she did in her twenties.
And the sunset made for such beautiful backlighting:
I had such a great day today–the only way it would have been better is to add in the rest of my family.
It was one of those days you know you’ll look back fondly upon.
Happy Memorial Day!
