It’s Summer – Life is Better At The Lake

Quote

D Magazine just published a good article about summer at the lake.  Click here to view it.  We all need to slow down our lives.  We are a busy people and our children burn out just like we adults do.  It’s time to relax, put down the devices and computers and get outside.  Let’s take some time to go swimming, fishing, jetskiing, boating, sit around the firepit, grill and catch fireflies.  Life is Better at the Lake.
