hume lake!

 A few weeks ago my family and I spent a wonderful week at Hume Lake for our family vacation. The whole week was so peaceful, and relaxing. The lake and mountains were absolutely beautiful this year. We were able to do many fun things such as kayaking, hiking, and swimming. 
 
 

 
 
 

 
 
 
 
 
 
Through the week we had the privilege of running into deer, two different times. We were able to see some babies, which were so adorable because they looked like little mini Bambi's with their white spots all over!  I have seen many different wildlife in Hume such as a bear, blue jays, road runners, bald eagles, and wood pecker...but to me there is nothing like seeing deer!
 
 
 

 One afternoon we were down at the lake just floating and relaxing, and as the time started to pass by many dark clouds came our way. We were able to hear thunder and even see some lightning (which was scary yet amazing.) Thunder storms in the mountain seem to be my absolute favorite because they come and go within hours! Plus the view of the lake when the storm comes rolling in makes it look beautiful. So as we were in the water enjoying the sounds of thunder and the wind through the trees, it began to rain. It was the most amazing experience ever. Being able to float in the lake while it raining was so peaceful and calming. I loved the way the rain drops would touch the water making little ripples all around me. This for me was the perfect time to marvel at Gods creation!
