I was very lucky to be able to take a few days off of work and relax this past holiday weekend.
I have been under a lot of stress which isn't good for a crazy person like me.
Stress leads to anxiety and panic and that leads to trips to the emergency room
and the doctor who always seems to be there when I show up all hyperventilating and claiming a heart attack like the old guy from Sanford and Son
told me that I need to get a hobby
And I did
and so far so good!
But anyway we took a trip to Lake Harmony in the Pocono Mountains
My brother in-law and his family rented a house for the week
and we took them up on their offer to join them for the holiday weekend.
I am not one for bugs and camping and other things that you would associate with mountains
but being on the lake is amazing.
The company wasn't bad either
Our first day it rained but the rain on the water was calming and peaceful
Lucky for us there was a nice little shed/cabana that we could duck into to escape the heavy rain.
It also helped that we had a giant bag of Swedish Fish......yum!
After the rain the lake was beautiful
The sun started to peek out from behind the clouds
Because it was the 4th of July there was to be a big firework show on the lake.
As evening approached the boats started to gather waiting for the show. It really was very lovely.
It was an exciting end to a great day.
The next morning brought the sun
And the sun brought swimming.....not me I am a pool person
No Ocean No Lake
The boy had his first chance to kayak
I was nervous
He told me to stop embarrassing him
I told him NEVER
He rowed further away
Much to my dismay the boy asked if he could stay for the week without us.
it is the first time he has been without Chris or I.
I miss him.
He is having a blast!
