Well, we finally did it. We made it one whole year! And what a day to celebrate! The morning started off horribly stormy and the air was so thick… I tried to make a cake. Once. Twice. Failed. Too much heat. And Nolan was in the worst mood ever. And then a funny thing happened. It stopped raining. And the sun came out. And it turned into one of those perfect summer days on the lake. We invited everyone to the beach club at the end of our street. Pat made burgers and dogs for everyone, the families showed up, Nolan wore a sailor hat… the day could not be beat.
