Our little lake cabin has been in our family for over 50 years. Now my sister, brother, and I share, maintain, and try to visit it as much as we can. It's on a breathtakingly beautiful lake in upper Michigan and there is truly nothing better than being "at the lake". Over the years we have seen the nearby cottages change hands a few times, but for the most part we have had the same neighbors for quite a while. The "Dad" of us all is Terry who organizes at least one gathering each year where everyone pitches in and brings something yummy to share. Tables are set up right next to the lake, and it's a great opportunity for everyone to catch up.
