Growing up we would go visit my grandparents every summer.
It was my favorite time of year because my grandparents had the coolest house.
They lived right on the lake and had boats and toys for us to play with. Spending the summers out there every year really did make me so happy. We always had a giant calendar and would mark off the days until we would be able to go out and stay at their lake house. However, there was one thing about the lake house that we all hated, and that was the HVAC system. They didn’t even have a properly working HVAC system. So we would spend all day out in the sun and come home to a warm house. My grandparents had small air conditioner window units in each room but they didn’t have central air conditioning. It was the only miserable part about going out to my grandparents every summer. We would complain about it all year long and my mom said she would talk to them about getting central air conditioner, but we all knew they never would. I hoped they would change their minds, but all the years we spent there as kids and there wasn’t any air conditioning. We just played in the lake when we go too hot and tried not to think about how sticky it would be at night. I really do miss those days and I hope my kids get to experience things like this one day.
