Summertime! A time to gather up the belongings and head to the lake. I had a pile of things to take with us: Ski vests, tubing floats, some paddle and there was a cooler — of course there had to be a cooler. What’s a trip to the lake without a cooler? Will, our six-year-old, came out to toss his red plastic Lightening McQueen fishing pole beside the collection.
