A few years ago, Jim’s parents purchased a lake house. It had been a dream of his Mom’s for ages, so it was really exciting to get to see her dream finally come true!
Their lake house is a place to relax and unwind, for family to gather and enjoy each other, for special memories to be made with the grandchildren, and a home away from home to savor all of the wonder and creation around it.
Many memories have already been made in the few years that they have owned their lake house- playing in the snow and fires in the fireplace, taking walks through the trees and playing in the leaves in the fall, fishing from their dock and blowing up a kiddie pool and splashing the days away up by the house in the heat of spring and summer.
But their most recent addition is sure to bring us the most fun and memories of all:
