Last week, early on Sunday morning, my parents, the girls and I loaded up in two cars and headed out for a 10 plus hour trip to Indiana. My dad's sister lives in Fort Wayne but also has a lake house not far from there in Columbia City...and that's where we were going.
For the most part the trip was uneventful. We stopped a few times for potty breaks or to switch passengers and/or drivers along the way. We were more than ready to get out of the car and when we arrived to the lake house, the adults were left standing at the cars while the kids had taken off in search of some fun.
My sister and her family had made the trip west a few days earlier and were already enjoying lazy days at the lake. It was a nice time to get away from Pennsylania and to visit with family that we have only seen once a year for the past 10 years. My aunt and uncle were gracious hosts and we enjoyed ourselves at their lake home.
