Well it is time to share some of my favorite pictures. My oldest two grandchildren spent a week vacation at the lake and my granddaughter learned to ski and barefoot. My grandson had a good time cheering on his sister and friends to new endeavors at the lake. He wasn't much on trying out new things on the water. Though he does love to get on that big old tube behind the boat and go for miles! Hope you enjoy my grands.  My granddaughter is on the right. Her best friend on the left.
