labor day.


the life jacket...orange and uncomfortable with a faint smell of lake water was my uniform for time spent at the water.  i remember standing at the boat dock fishing for perch with frozen corn as bait.  i recall riding an inter tube behind a boat...flying off only to gain a mouth and swimming suit full of water and a lot of laughs.  and mountain man has his own memories of time spent at the lake.

so, it seems only fitting that we do the honor for our children...

life vests that squeeze too tight, stinky fish, wriggly worms, the smell of boat exhaust mixed with sunscreen...

and...

catching fish, jumping waves, sunning, laughs and tons of memories!!


happy labor day!
