|Elkhart Lake, Wisconsin|
Being on a boat in the lake totally brought me back to my childhood. My dad and step-mom, Pam, had a boat and when my brother and I were with them every other weekend, we would always take a camper, a tent, and the boat out and spend the weekend at the lake.
I have many memories from those days. Tent-sleeping in lightening storms, riding my bike so fast down a hill and wiping out, having an accident in my swimsuit because I hated using the nasty lake bathrooms, frying up freshly caught fish with lots of salt, pepper, and lemon in a cast iron skillet on a campfire.
For some reason one of the things that stands out most to me from the boating days is eating raisins and the ball shape cheese puffs. My step mom would always bring those as snacks and I remember sitting on the floor of the boat munching away on those cheese puffs. Next time I get the chance to go boating, I am totally picking up a canister of cheese puffs!
