Labor Day Weekend Starts at the Lake

Taking canoes out on Standley Lake is an annual tradition of ours that we missed last year because of the pandemic.

Happy Labor Day weekend, loves! I hope you were all able to find some kind of rest and relaxation over the past few days.

Chris had a friend visiting from New York and the two of them hiked a couple of 14ers over the week (more on that, later!), then came back to hang with us for a couple of days before Gavin flew back. On his last day, we all headed over to our local lake — Standley Lake — to rent some canoes and take them out on the water. We had been making this a tradition of ours each summer, but last summer they were closed because of the pandemic.

This summer, however, they were back open for business, and it was better than ever! We met some other friends of ours over at the lake and got one canoe and one kayak and spent two hours out on the water. The big girls loved it, while Em loved hanging out and supervising.

Supervisor extraordinaire 😉

Rentals were $40 each for life jackets and the kayak and the canoe, and you get two hours out on the water. It was time well spent, friends!

Little Grace tucked between Chris’s legs here … let’s just say she had more fun once we trusted her enough to sit in an actual seat!

Happy Labor Day, friends! Sending all the sunshiney, mellow vibes your way!

Bis bald!
