We are in the middle of extending our boat dock to accommodate our new pontoon. The existing dock is in fairly decent shape but needed to be a bit longer. It happens to be a perfect spot to catch some sun and relax so when Wayfair asked if I would like to create a childhood memory using a few of their products, I jumped at the chance.
When I was a kid, my mom was constantly filling little baggies full of snacks for us kids and we would all sit around on the grass giggling or poolside and share our food. I find myself now as a mom, doing the same exact thing. I love to pack a basket or cooler full of our favorite drinks and snacks and find a cozy spot to sit and enjoy the goodies.
I decided to also add a few tiki torch lights around the dock as well. They give off a warm flicker light which looks fabulous at night.
My son especially loves when we pack a picnic cooler full of our favorites and hang out for snack time.
It’s amazing how life comes full circle as you grow older and remember things from your childhood. I often wonder if he will remember these moments as I do my own childhood memories. I guess I can only hope, right? Our lakeside campsite has been so much so far this summer. . It has been a tremendous blessing in that it offers the peace and serenity we were looking for. Guess what, Wayfair is giving away a $100 gift card to their site via our instagram page. Be sure to check out our instagram page where I will be sharing one of these images above and asking you to leave a comment (on instagram) sharing your favorite childhood memory. A winner will be chosen at random by the end of the week. Good luck!
