We spent a week at Beaver Lake, in a cool, comfortable, sprawling lake house with my immediate family (and our extended family down the road). There were early morning ski sessions, triple slalom sessions, naps, too many carbs, a race, an all day canoe trip, a spectacular family-run fireworks show and plenty of time with the fam. All in all… it honestly did help my summer attitude improve.
Make no mistake, despite my improved summer attitude I still came home and enjoyed a nice chilled coughahembottle of wine. OH STOP JUDGING. I shared it with Edder. He had like a 1/4 of a glass…
In more heartbreaking news, I lost my memory stick from all of our summer vacations so far. That’s what I get for taking it out of one camera to put into another. I am still really upset with myself over it. So frustrating. At least it was a vacation with 20+ other people so there are plenty of photos to pilfer. For now, a few shots of last week from my phone.
*started vacation by running a ridiculously hilly 10k in bentonville arkansas with my sissy. side note: northwest arkansas races have, hands down, the best swag of any races i’ve ever done. i guess if you race where wal-mart and all its vendors are based, you get good race swag!*
