Lake Anne


Here are the ingredients for a perfect summer morning. Keep Sabrina home from day camp. Make waffles from scratch and serve them with berries and bacon. Drive to Lake Anne, a spot just far away enough to feel special and close enough for me to go alone with the girls. Have lunch at a little lakeside cafe with a child-sized counter and stools. Get ice cream and dip our feet in the fountain. Look for treasures in the used bookstore. Drive back home in time for naps.

This was last week, and that day while the girls napped I canceled this week's camp so we can fill our mornings with more such adventures.

Sounds like a great time. Nothing beats Camp Mommy so good for you for dropping the other camp.
