It’s finally the dog days of summer. Some might think yuck get me out of this fire-ball. For us it’s time to hit the lake and living so close to a few of our favorite watering holes is heaven. We never planned to live in our current home as long as we have, but it has proven to have its perks. We can work all day and sneak off to the lake just in time to enjoy a few hours of fun in the sun. In honor of our glorious lake life I am sharing my favorite lake essentials.
