Fun at Lake Allatoona

Today the kids and I spent the day at Lake Allatoona with some friends. I had never been there before, so I was pleased to discover that it's a really nice place! There is a sandy beach, a very mildly-sloped swimming area, and even a small playground at the edge of the beach, so our kids played wonderfully together in all three areas, and we moms got to sit and chat.

David was busy hopping all over the place as usual, but after Abigail's laundry list of questions, like "Is the duck bad or good? Will he get me? Are there pretend alligators in there? Are there REAL alligators in there?" (etc), she finally waded in and she loved that she could both walk and swim in the crystal-clear water. She came out literally only a few times during the five hours that we were there!

We came home all tired out and a little sunkissed -- a wonderful day!

Beautiful day-is the water level where it needs to be for the lake this summer?

Nice calm lake. Is it far from you? It would be a nice place to visit during apple pickin' time.
