My parent’s lake house is a couple of hours outside of Chicago near Starved Rock and is the perfect place to disconnect from devices and have fun with the kids. We run on lake time and the kids’ focus is on spending as much time at the beach, pool, or down at the dock as possible! We agree with our messy kids and try to plan easy summertime meals so we can be outside!
Stella, Sophia, and Eleanora kept grandpa jumping as the fish were biting! The girls would scream with excitement over every bluegill they pulled from the lake. I screamed as I tried to help my dad take the fish off the hooks and the fish flipped around. The bluegills were so little but the girls didn’t care. They loved it all. I loved that they were having a blast outside with their grandpa. Once the girls collectively caught 16 fish Holly and I decided it was time to go up to make dinner.

"From an early age my mom and dad, Joanne and Ted Taylor, ingrained in me the imperative of leaving the world a better place. One of the greatest pleasures of our success since I started Taylor Fresh Foods, has been the opportunities afforded to us to make a positive impact on a larger scale.”
