Lake Fun

leave a comment »

We enjoyed wonderful weather for anything we wanted to do at the lake yesterday, starting with a run to town to buy a replacement screen door for one that wasn’t holding its shape anymore. Yes, we measured first but upon arrival back at the house, we discovered they sawed an inch off the old one to make it fit.

Had to borrow a saw that will allow us to complete the installation today.

Gave us a chance to hop on the pontoon and venture out on the lake for a picnic lunch.

After some beach time and swimming, we played cards out on the deck. I built a fire in the firepit for cooking a flank steak dinner.

That gave us a chance to finally sit on the benches I built from wood left over after our deck rebuild at Wintervale, which Mike helped us accomplish.

Topped off the evening with a triple-game that Barb introduced as, “Fishbowl.” Each participant writes a word on three pieces of paper and tosses them in a bowl. You form teams and take turns playing “Taboo,” charades, and “Password,” reusing the same batch of words each time.

You’d think that would make the solutions easier, but the belly laughs came from how many times people goofed up despite the obvious answer if we don’t stray from the 15 choices we created. Simple pleasures.

We are having tons of fun! Now it’s time for a waffle breakfast before cutting the bottom inch off the new screen door…
