Wordless (yeah right) Wednesday

We made a little impromptu visit to the lake this past weekend. (Sardis Lake)
I remember going MANY times as a youngster but this was my kiddos first visit.
Sad since we only live 30 mins away . . .
They thought it was a real treat!
I love how my kids enjoy the "simple things".
Sometimes I wish that there were no computers, cellphones, nintendo wii's . . .
Things used to be SIMPLE.
I didn't have those distractions as a child and I turned out alright.
I THINK?
Didn't I?
Ok, don't answer that.
Anyhoo . . .
My kids enjoyed watching the boats, climbing on the rocks and enjoying the fresh air.
They even enjoyed the fishy smelling water as it misted us from the spillway.
ICKY!

It's good to turn the computer off for a day and make memories!

Awesome pictures, it looks like you all had a great time. Our family loves going to the lake and grilling out there. Nice way to spend the day, we do it often :)

Hooray for fun family time and making memories! Wish we had a lake close by! Cactus, sand, and hot wind.............

Mmmm...low tide. I grew up by the ocean and that's a smell I'll never forget. Somehow just being by the water makes it okay, though. Almost...

(Beautiful photos, BTW. I've never been to Mississippi so it's neat to see shots like this.)

Wow, it looks lovely there.

I have a similar post today... enjoying the simple things is definitely something we need to do more often...

Great shots. Looks like a great day at the lake.

Love the pictures--it sure is gorgeous there!

And I agree...things were sooo simple when I was growing up. Now with so much technology I get a little sad thinking about how much kids miss out on today :(

Glad you guys had a nice time--it's always nice to get away even for a short trip :)

Great photos! Looks like a wonderful day (all except for the stinky water of course)!
