First Lake Trip

Nathan had off work all last week.  We didn’t tell anyone until a couple of weeks before because we didn’t want to plan anything and we didn’t really plan anything ourselves.  It was AMAZING.  We hung out at the house a lot.  We actually got things done around the house, hung out, did fun things … Continue reading
