If I had made a list of everything I wanted from our lake vacation, I could have crossed off every one.
We swam. We laid in the grass. We ate good food and drank good drink. We spent time with people we love. We boated. I took lots of photos and daydreamed about upcoming work. Adam fished and watched a fair amount of Mets games (on TV). Most importantly, we stared out at Lake Ontario and thought about nothing at all.
I read recently that sitting beside a body of water will improve your mental health. This was just what the doctor ordered.
And somehow we made it through a 22-hour car ride with a one year-old in two days. Yes, we are insane. But I figure with our improved mental health from sitting beside the lake, we could use a little crazy.
Hands down, this was the best vacation I could have ever wished for. It. was. perfect.
