The Lake

Yesterday the girls and I discovered the lake access we have for the lake across our street.  We were pretty sure we had spotted the driveway earlier in the summer, but due to the chaos of the summer we didn't investigate much further.  We had a quiet day and the weather was "Pure Michigan" so we hopped on our bikes and went for an adventure!  I love this neighborhood in the summer!  There are three lakes all around our subdivision.  This is the first one as you enter/exit:

This is the entrance point...very cozy!

At first they were unsure of the dock...notice the "wobbly" stance :)

It took approximately a minute to get over that fear and they were running!

It was SO peaceful and you felt like you were floating because the dock was so close to the water.

I love the simple country life!!

Collecting lots of  rocks and smelly shells :)

It was such a great morning. We took dad back that evening to show him our "discovery"...we also brought life jackets for the girls because they have several paddle boats and fishing boats for the association to use!  The girls were paranoid about a baby "alligator" that was spotted by a fisherman...we got a newsletter about it and I made the mistake of reading it out loud!
We have big plans of getting fishing poles and taking a blanket out to the dock at night to watch stars come out. 
Nehemiah 9:6
   You alone are the LORD. You made the heavens, even the highest heavens, and their starry host, the earth and all that is on it, the seas and all that is in them. You give life to everything, and the multitudes of heaven worship you.
