this lake

Good morning! Alexi and I enjoyed some time together yesterday at Green Lake (he has this week off). Before we had children we did lots of running around this lake; even did the majority of our training for two marathons here. We rarely make it to Green Lake together anymore; even more rare to be here sans children. The foggy morning turned into another sunny, beautiful day.

Happy Wednesday to you!

My kids had a science teacher who taught them to make cattail pancakes. I am here to tell you they were GROSS. Same teacher always had a canoe, summer or winter, on top of her car. When asked why, she said: "you never know when you're going to need a canoe".

We used to live across from Green Lake and I never got tired of this view. Feeling a little homesick!

I've spent time in Green Lake, Wisconsin and for a minute I thought that's where you had been! The lake is beautiful! Glad you got to spend some time together!

Some of my fondest memories of living in Seattle are of times we spent at Green Lake. Your photos capture it beautifully! Thank you for the little walk down memory lane. :D

Ah...Sean and I have a place like that, too. Our lake is at Watkins Mill state Park, and it's where we trained for our half and full marathon two years ago. It's now a favorite place to slip away to when we go visit my parents.
