We went away last weekend to have a family vacation with my husband’s side of the family. It was a wonderful weekend and we had lots of fun but we missed sharing the weekend with Mark’s father who recently passed away. We scheduled this vacation before he died and felt that we should go ahead with our plans and I’m glad that we did. I love Mark’s family and enjoyed the time I spent with them and the children loved playing together. Oh to have that much energy again and love for life without concerns.
We went to Potawatomi Inn in Angola, Indiana. It is a beautiful place and I loved being near Lake James.
One special addition to our weekend was that seaplanes landed on Lake James for the fly-in and then came up a ramp on the beach and onto the grounds. I LOVE planes and I just stood there grinning with delight watching them land. I couldn’t help it. I loved hearing the engines. My father passed along his love of planes to me.

The children also got to do crafts in a craft room at the Inn which was totally awesome and we could have stayed there all day but wanted to go outside to enjoy the trails, the beach, and the play area.
It was a weekend I will always remember and hope we can do it again another year.
