2007 Offers More Time to Relax!

The year of 2007 allowed us some reprieve from all the nonstop work at Loon Lake Lodge. We were able to just sit back and relax and enjoy the lake much more.

The only major project was reroofing the garage out back. On Memorial Day weekend our "young crew" came up for their yearly lake visit. This is our daughter, son-in-law and their good friends. On this particular visit, the guys volunteered to help Poppy get started on this big task. Within just a couple weeks Poppy was then able to get the roof reshingled and it turned out great! Thanks again guys!

I think the reason we were not so involved with projects at the lake, we were busy overseeing our new home being built in the Indy area. We did travel to the lake every weekend, but we spent each evening during the week going to see what they had accomplished on our new home as it progressed. Little did we know we would only call this lovely place home for six months. But, we loved the whole process and enjoyed decorating and being there for a short while, not to mention all the wonderful friends we made in those neighbors.

On the weekends it was fun watching Elizabeth grow and come to love being at Grandmommy and Poppy's lake. She loved to "help" mow the lawn and tackled the lake on her own terms. Just beware, don't drop her "eyes" (sunglasses) in the water!

Elizabeth sports her "eyes" to protect from the bright sunshine.

As 2007 came to a close, we made a December visit to the lake. On that weekend we enjoyed the very, very quiet night as snow fell and blew into a winter wonderland overnight. We woke to this sight and we happy we could still get out to head home after our visit. Although we have had quite a winter this year, we have yet to see this much snow and drifting in one night again.
