We just got in from a long weekend at the lake celebrating my sister's birthday. These are some instagram shots from all different perspectives. Rachel had two of her lovely friends come up with us, which was so fun. Overall we had a total of 8 humans and 4 canines. That bottom picture with the pups cracks me up. The weather was so un-August like. There was this incredible breeze, the water was cool, and the air felt different. We made s'mores (and s'more brownies - good grief) and did a lot of grilling and swimming. I even managed to get in a nap. We played bananagrams (my new favorite) and enjoyed the company and relished in how lucky we are to be a part of Rachel's life. She is quite simply, the best.
