Lakes have a great way of bringing families together. For generations, families continue to flock to the lakes to reminisce and make new memories. When Jon was 7, his parents bought a condo on Lake Wawasee. Throughout the years he enjoyed his time on Wawasee and eventually ended up in Pennsylvania with his beautiful wife, Tami. Fast forward a few years and here they are with 5 amazing kiddos and a yearly vacation to the very same condo that his parents bought when he was a kid. 

Seeing Lake Wawasee in the eyes of these kids is one to remember. Their love for this place is something that makes me so happy to have been able to document. This summer 4 of the 5 kids learned how to water ski. Definitely a big year for them! 

Tami and Jon, I hope you had an amazing 2 weeks at the lake! Hopefully you'll be able to sneak away for 3 next summer. :)
