We went to Lake Wilson this weekend with our good friends the Scotts. It was the half way point between our two houses. It is a lake made from the damming of the Tennessee River. It is located just south of Florence, AL. The boys were in heaven and had a blast. They pretty much swam in the lake for at least 6 hours each day. They just kept getting in and out. They probably burned thousands of calories with all the laps they made in our little cove. They caught quite a few fish right off of our dock and some in the boat too. We didn't spend as much time fishing in the boat as Jeremy and Paul would have liked but it was so hot they couldn't stay out there very long. The weather was gorgeous as it was in the mid 90's all 3 days. And despite our best prevention efforts every one of us managed to get a little too much sun. The house we rented was a little older but was the perfect retreat for our two families. It had a game room in the basement with ping pong and other games that the boys had a blast playing. We ate way too much good food from steaks to brownies. I am pretty sure Aidan survived the weekend on cheez-its, cookies, and smores. When we asked the boys what there favorite part of the weekend was they both said catching fireflies at night. My favorite part was the lake itself it just makes me feel so calm and relaxed. Lots of grilling, swimming, sun and awesome camaraderie with old friends. It was the perfect way to start the summer off and a great way to end our time here in Alabama.
