Nichole and I got a vacation away from the kids thanks to our parents, so we went with some friends down to a beach "cottage" courtesy of Mike and Connie Cook (thanks guys!). It was definitely no cottage. There were three levels, four bedrooms (each with their own bathroom), our own dock, and a view of the lake that was breath-taking. The only bad thing about it was the 82 step climb at the end of each day!
The days were spent on the boat or playing golf, and the nights were spent eating out and having fun. It was a great time right up until the long drive home, but we were happy to see the kids again (although they had been spoiled greatly and weren't necessarily glad to see us!).

You have never truly experienced the lake until you put on a life jacket upside down and "bob" in the water!
