We are really excited about our autumn family getaway later this month! We’ve been talking about this for several months and it is almost time for us to take off for a few days to a rustic lodge on the shores of a lake in central Indiana. We don’t take time off for a vacation in the summer because all we would do is stay inside where it is cool . . . none of us do well in really hot, humid weather. So the month of October works great for us. A few years ago we went to northern Michigan and stayed in a little cottage by Lake Michigan and we were able to climb the sand dunes, walk on the beach and hike out to the lighthouse.
It rained and was misty and foggy for the whole time we were there, but it was still fun. We played board games and did a jigsaw puzzle, and just stayed together without TV or any other distractions. It was great! This time we didn’t want to go so far away because we didn’t want to spend so much time driving, so we found an old fashioned lodge where we will be able to go fishing, have a bonfire at night, walk on the beach or along the trails, or just read a book and play games. And it won’t be hot and humid!
It might rain, but that’s OK with us. We bought a couple new games we are going to play, along with some of our old favorites, and we are planning on just having a fun time together, just our little family. We’re looking forward to our upcoming getaway, and I’ll be sure to share photos with you when we return. In the meantime, I hope you will join us for this week’s Thursday Favorite Things Blog Hop and Linky Party. I’ll do my best to stop by and visit as many of you as I can!
