Our Weekend at the Lake

We spent this past weekend at the lakehouse with our friends. We were at the beach between lunch and dinner on Saturday, playing and having fun. The boys were playing King of the Mountain on the big tube. Isaac fell off two seconds after I snapped this shot.

All Daniel needed was a bucket and he entertained himself for hours!
And Lydia only needed a stick. She slapped the water over and over and over. . .

While the girls did this:
Isaac and Stephanie did this:Here's their driver:
Oh wait, that doesn't look right. I meant the tall one. He was the driver.

Then that handsome fellow took me for a spin. Woo-Hoo! He's a speed demon, he is!
This picture is really just for my CL friends:

So maybe we do grill in the summer. Sue me!
Sunday we spent more time relaxing. Here's our idea of relaxing at the lake.
Look at that cute boy! Notice anything different about him??? He's wearing UNDERWEAR! It's a miracle! Now I need to buy smaller shorts for him. Good grief!

Maya caught a 17" trout, but we showed him mercy and decided to take a picture of this one instead.
Aren't we gracious??

All I can say is you guys are super adventurous! I am glad you get out so much!!! It looks like the kiddos had a blast...good morning to the Clarks! Is your backyard cluckin' yet?
My mom and dad have finally starting reading my blog more than once every couple of months!! I feel almost as special as you--when I see all of your family commenting!---Well, maybe not that special yet, but close!!

Ginger said...

Are you kidding me?? My family almost never comments here. Puh-lease! Most all the comments are from friends.

Can you pass along some of that relaxing to me? I have gone crazy with third-trimester nesting stuff. Just read my latest entry, sad but true. I have told my body to just calm down, but try telling that to my hormones! Ha.

Then, it must have been a month or so ago that they have stopped--so sad! I saw your mom and your dad and your sister comment on your blog--or at least I used to:) Maybe they will start now-hint to Ginger's family!!
My parents are not commenting yet like I would love them to(every now and then they do), but I am just soooo happy to have them find it important enough to read-ha!

Looks like a fun day! Love the grilling shot, however, neither you nor your husband is grilling. It looks like you've passed the 'standing over a fire in the middle of the summer' to someone else!

We have had a cool-ish spring, only getting over 100 for a few days, so we have grilled a lot. We will not when it's 118.

Looks like a REALLY fun day!

Jenna says the creek looks far more fun than a lake. Although, having friends to play with would be fun.

Ginger said...

Poor Jenna. She's so deprived, she doesn't know what fun is!

Julie said...

It must be like 100 degrees over that grill! LOL

Looks like you had a great time!
