|Geese family visiting the resort.|
Memorial weekend at the lake is a time for family. Everyone here had family at one time or another over the weekend. Saturday started a little cool and cloudy, but it didn't stop us from enjoying the weekend.
The grandkids never want to be inside, even the littlest one. Max is 17 months and really just finding his words. So whatever we did, wherever we went, "Wasit?" Like his older brother and sister, one of his favorite things to do is throw rocks in the lake (it really should be filled by now).
|First swim of the season.|
The older two, of course, wanted to swim. We held them off as long as we could, but when the sun came out, they went in. At first, they were the only two swimming, but it wasn't long before most of the kids were in the water with them, while the adults in beach chairs on shore and shivered just thinking about swimming. This grandma just smiled as they splashed about--you see, it doesn't seem that long ago it was me swimming in the lake on Memorial weekend. It was tradition--no matter the weather.

Sunday was HOT. So the kids swam most of the morning, but we did find a little time on Sunday for golf. We took all three kids--even little Max, who was just thrilled to get to ride in the golf cart and be outside.
|Kisses for Chloe|
Chloe enjoyed the weekend too. I thought she was going to shake her tail off when our youngest son and his family showed up Saturday morning. She was so excited to see he and the kids. And the kids love her, so all was right in Chloe's universe. It's pretty funny watching Max with her. Chloe is taller than he is, but so gentle with him. Well, sometimes she forgets herself and Max will get knocked down, but Max just giggles and gets up and goes to her again.
Chloe's a pretty good sport too, at these family gatherings. I'm not sure how she really feels about wearing the Barry Manilow shirt, but she posed for the picture anyway.
My favorite parts of the weekend were not the big things, however. They were the quiet moments spent with the grandkids, one on one. Finding out favorite books, talking about kindergarten, naming everything in the cabin. Moments not shown in photographs, but "heartshots" to remember and cherish.
