Harrison Lake revisited...

For the past few years...we have enjoyed a picnic at my most favorite lake every year...on or about July permitting.

The weather permitted...and so we spent a lovely evening at Harrison Lake on Friday night.

Uncle Tim spent some time in the trenches with Ryder...

...and the other birthday boy went for a long walk with his two girls. We did have fun celebrating their birthdays...and they had their cake pie...and ate it too.
Harrison Lake is a glacier fed lake...and therefore looks nicer than it feels! Ryder didn't seem to mind the cold...but Emme hadn't really planned on getting wet. Oh well!

We watched a dragon boat team in action...

...a wonderful display of teamwork.

The kids left for home once bedtime for the wee ones had come and gone...but the two of us walked the beach as the sun was setting. It really is a beautiful spot whatever the season...and I plan to return soon...definitely before next July!

Have a wonderful day...

  11. Judy. . your pictures of Harrison look so "family".. .you are wonderful at capturing the moments that make memories.
    The sunset that was set out for the two of you. . .beautiful.

  12. This is the third time that I visited your blog today just because the photos are so very beautiful and so different of a landscape than what I see daily. Especially the last three exceptional!!! Thank you for sharing them. The mountains and the body of water, plus the sunset...breathtaking.
