Labor Day

This past weekend was the last "official" summer holiday...sigh...

Dad was at the midwestern regional tennis tournament the week before labor day and stayed at Crooked Lake in a quaint little cabin on the water. So, at the last minute we decided Davis, Matthew, & I- along with our parents would go spend a few nights at the same cabin at Crooked Lake near Angola, IN. I planned to lay out and play with Davis at the edge of the water b/c we were on a sand bottom but it was FREEZING COLD! For real...the high on Saturday was 63 and it was so windy I couldn't even have a conversation outside b/c it was soooo loud. Really, it was bizarre. We'd all brought one sweatshirt so we were a little shmaggy by the end of the long weekend. We decided to go out and explore and garage sale. It was definately warmer and less windy inland. Dad even got an autographed Barry Mantilow picture. Who can't use one of those for two bucks! Sunday was pretty nice felt like fall. We went to the state park and local inn and did some nature hiking by the lake. It's such a great family inn...called the Potawotamie. It reminds me of the place on Dirty Dancing. There were boats for rent including kayaks, paddle boats, pontoons, etc. Just so charming. We even got Davis his own loon to take home and remind him of his first vacation. I was totally lame on the pictures but here's what I've got.
