For Corey's sister's birthday, we took a trip to the lake house. It seems in Tennessee, you can talk to any group of people and mention "the lake house" as a common place. Everyone seems to know someone with a lake house. Ours originally belonged to Corey's grandparents. It's a 3-bedroom, A-frame brown cabin with blue trim on Lake Barkley in Kuttawa, Kentucky. The cabin is next to a large dock and has a long back porch fit for late night board game marathons, grilling competitions, and low country boils.
The boys put on an incredible low country lobster boil with lobster, shrimp, potatoes, mushrooms, and corn on the cob. It was all cooked in an old Anheuser-Busch keg somebody got from their neighbor. Dogs ran around. A breeze blew in from off of the lake. We ate with our hands as the sun slowly sank below the horizon.
Man, I love a good weekend at the lake house.
