tea parties & crayfish

We were poor growing up but never knew it. My dad worked overnights and overtime Saturday mornings. Sundays were family days. My cousins' family was much the same - long work days for my uncle. We had three kids in our family; my cousins had six.

We used to drive twenty-five miles to go to this one park. It had a lovely lake with three beaches. The "main" beach had a snack stand and a play area with swings and other playground equipment. We NEVER got to go there. We always went to the second beach, no matter which set of cousins joined us.

We played in the water all day long. It was the best! We all got along and still do. The girls would play tea party. We'd take deep breaths and sit on the bottom, under the water pretending to pour/drink tea. In the evenings, the boys would catch crayfish and chase us with them. We often stayed until dusk. We'd change out of our swimsuits into pjs for the ride home.
