Lake Whatcom

     With all of the rain and the grey skies, we tend to forget that we live in an amazing place. There is a reason everything is a vibrant green and the air smells like trees. It's called rain. Lots and lots of it! And in the summer I am so thankful for it because everything looks so alive. No brown grass here, we get to lay in lush green grass as we watch the clouds roll by above us. In the winter we get pretty cynical around here, but this time of year hits and we all forget why we complained so much. One friend put it like this:

 "We drink the sun Kool-Aid and we forget."


 We spent the day on Lake Whatcom with our friends last week. It was a much needed day of rest and fun. In fact, it was a hazy day, but we cared not. It was perfect. Havensong loved being in the kayak and Autumn and Chase had a blast learning how to paddle board.

     It didn't matter that the sun wasn't shining. The water still felt refreshing and the fog rolling across the tops of the hills was pure beauty. It was a weekday and we were the only ones out there. The kids played with their friends all day and we had a wonderful dinner before heading out on the boat to go tubing.
     The kids smiled the whole time. It was an amazing day! Thanks to our friends the Bargens!
