Time to put the books away and conjure up some fun. Kids know how to play inately, no matter what their Age!
So happy to have all 4 of the “kids” home for a visit after 7 months of our “Baby” living in the Big Apple.
The game starts out fun
With healthy competition
Cheering each other on with high 5’s And fist bumps,
Laughter and friendly banter.
There’s dancing and shouting with encouraging words and then losers get sore shouting obscenities hoping to score.
Quiet laugher turns to screams and the other team gets wild saying “it’s been awhile since I’ve taken you down”.
It’s in the bag or so they think
but soon the table turns and the wind has it’s way
The game’s over but they’re on to another for the chance of revenge.
Their hopes are high so they get their rally song on and do it again!
This is in front of our lake house in Lower Lake, California where we’ve been going ever since the kids were born. My parents went when they were growing up and we had many vacations there when I was young. The tradition continues with many family members and friends having houses on the lake. We feel so blessed to have this little oasis during Covid.
Lake County is a county located in the north central portion of the U.S. state of California. As of the 2010 census, the population was 64,665. The county seat is Lakeport. The county takes its name from Clear Lake, the dominant geographic feature in the county and the largest natural lake wholly within California. The first vinyards were planted in 1870’s which was replaced by pear and walnut trees. In 1960’s after prohibition the wine region took off and is one of the largest growing wine regions in all of California. It is near the base of Mount Konocti Volcano which is a great hiking spot. The soil is mineral-rich at high altitude of 1,370 to 2,600 feet, where ile summers and cool winter temperatures create ideal conditions for producing elegant, complex wines. There are over 30 wineries in the area, many places to hike, some of the biggest bass tournaments and Konoctti Harbor Resort will be opening again after restoration and new ownership with concerts and a spa. Whoo Hoo! We can’t wait! Some of our favorite concerts were seen here: Chicago, The Beach Boys, Kelly Clarkson, Tim McGraw, Toby Keith, Doobie Brothers, The Steve Miller Band, Willie Nelson, David Crosby, Elvin Bishop, Alan Jackson, Sheryl Crow and Reba McEntire to ZZ Top, Poison, Kid Rock, Tim McGraw and Toby Keith (the list goes on and on)
Aye Aye Mate
Not one maybe 2
It could be 3 or 4
No one knows for sure
Pirates drink rum until their dumb
5,6,7 8 and then they hit the floor.
Wake them if you can with Advil and a chaser
That’s right mate it’s time to get to work, don’t knock on my door.
You’d think they’d learn their lesson but it’s Saturday night and there in for more.
Oh the pirates life is not for me, so I’ll just take pictures and go out and explore.
Aye Aye Mate!
Have a Fun Friday and Great weekend!
Thanks for taking time to meet my family.
