I always write about how special family is to Mark and I and sometimes we don't always feel we get to spend time with all our family. Everyone is different and everyone feels family is different, but to Mark and I family is each other, our children, our parents, brothers, sisters, cousins and Aunts and Uncles. Yes close friends are amazing and we couldn't be who we are without them, but your family is something that should be cherished. We are probably the luckiest because we have both sides close to us and we get to balance our time with both. As I stated in a previous post, this summer is about slowing down and being with our family.
The lake is a place to do this. This past weekend we stayed at my parents place. I went down early Friday morning, so my kids could see their cousins...
This little face says, "Aunt Sarah, stop taking my picture!"
Then it was time to have a dance party!
Lucie told my mom a secret at the end of the weekend and said, "Uncle Mark is a rock star!" I may not agree all the time, but realizing how much he does I might have to agree with my niece this time:).
I wish everyone saw family as important and we do, but I guess they are missing out! We can't wait for more adventures at the lake this summer!
