Ahhh, the lake - view from the lake house of Lake Geneva
Haydon prefers the sand box, outside the cold water, or on the bench on the pier again safely out of reach of the splashing of cold lake water.
Dawson and cousin Noah were the swimmers and constructors. They only see each other every couple of years but they enjoy each others company and being at the lake together.
This was Roman's first visit to the lake, and he enjoyed playing with Grandpa on the deck. He also enjoyed walks and playing with cousins - well drooling and watching them play is a more accurate description.
Dawson getting launched by his dad on the Rave. If you have a big lake you should definitely get a Rave which is a trampoline on water and attach this new toy which is a big soft vinyl pillow for launching people up and into the water. I tried it and except for the cold lake water up the nose it is really fun.
Roman enjoyed great-uncle Peter's sermon at Lily Lake Congregational Church on Sunday. We also liked the treat buffet afterwards for the social hour downstairs!
Grandpa and Dawson on the lake path which goes around the entire lake (20 miles)including along the lawns of some very nice homes and mansions which are required to provide public access along the lake. Dawson is our super hiker and went with us in the morning and Uncle Sean all the way to Lake Geneva City in the afternoon. He walked about 10 miles I would guess.
A few pictures of the lake vacation to keep the sweet memories alive. If it wasn't way too far away in Wisconsin, we would go more often. As it is, we cherish the few days we have and thanks to everyone for a great time.
