The Lake


We went to the lake again. This time it was a small beach with no waves and a private area where I could actually relax and let the the kids- gasp!- play in the water. And go on boats and stuff.









Carter went tubing. Noah got a leech on his foot, and a little girlfriend. Gray loved his "suit" (life jacket) and insisted on wearing it the whole day long, even for the bonfire.





I could get used to this.

  1. Gray looks sooo grown up. It sounded like you had a mini vacation....I am so glad you were able to do this....It kind of breaks my heart to know that a little girl is stealing Noah's heart...Just kidding of course...just knowing he is growing up and how in the world did a leach get on his foot...reminds me of the movie "African Queen"...So glad you enjoyed the beautiful Saturday we had.

  6. That is the life. How nice to just be able to relax and not worry about the kids in the water or about the thousand other people on the beach.

  8. Nothing better than a fire on the beach! Looks like so much fun. I'm sad that we never got to do that this summer, and now it's over. I go back to work tomorrow:(
