By the lake with a boy and his dog

The lake in our backyard is one of my son's favorite spots. The fishing is good some of the time and even when it's not, well it's always a great place to relax, enjoy the breeze and the peaceful surroundings. Even with neighbors all around, it's surprisingly always very quiet.


Whether or not a friend or hubby joins him while he's fishing, my sweet boy is rarely alone for very long. In fact, he's usually joined by a small 4-legged companion named Lizzy.



Yes, our family dog loves to tag along to enjoy the fresh air and the company of her boy...


Aaah, to be as carefree as a boy fishing and his dog keeping him company!

Wishing you a relaxing day and week ahead. May we all remember to slow down and enjoy the scenery. :)

Oh, that sounds so good -- slowing down & enjoying the scenery -- and the animals! Well, it is a long weekend, so perhaps I will get to do just that. Glad to see you are doing it.

My boys would love to fish right along with him. :) What a beautiful place it must be to go down and watch the two of them.

Hugs!

The dog brings back memories - had a cocker spaniel like that as a kid!
