Beaver Lake Retreat


Beaver Lake Retreat



Family get-togethers can be tough.


We all live in different places,


so when we all get together,


We never have a big enough place to hold all of us.


Rather than overwhelming one person


by trying to have everyone stay at one person's house,


This year we tried something different.


We rented the entire facility at Beaver Lake Retreat.


It was great.  The place was big enough.


We could all eat together,


hang out,


enjoy the hot tub, 


have a bonfire with s'mores,


watch the hummingbirds,


and still have a place 


for everyone to sleep at night


without kids sleeping 


across every feasible inch


of floor and couch space.


The adults could still stay up and chat. without fear of keeping the little ones up.


We all had a wonderful time.
