On the way we enjoyed some beautiful places:
And a view of the lake itself (isn't it absolutely gorgeous?:)
We stayed at the cute and inexpensive hotel with simple and cozy rooms:
The kiddos loved to spend time at the beach and dig in the sand even though my 2-year old was absolutely terrified of water and preferred to stay on the beach:
When we weren't on the beach (which was 90% of the time but no pictures of me in a swim suit...Sorry, not happening!!), we walked around:
...and enjoyed local raspberries and raspberry or smores shakes (SOOOO GOOD! But so not good for my waistline...):
On the last day we decided to go around the whole lake (hence extra expenses on gas). We passed a wild life habitat (pictures of the skunks are not included...):
My Baby finally overcame his scare of water and had an absolute blast with his brother digging in the sand, looking for seashells and splashing.
Overall, we had a grand time!!! I came back home very burned but so much more relaxed. We really needed this inexpensive, close-to-home vacation!! I already want to go back...Wouldn't it be awesome to live somewhere on the beach?
