What a fabulous time we had on vacation last week! The weather was beautiful and hot which gave us plenty of water time. If you ever plan a vacation again, try to find a private lake that you can have all to yourself. There is nothing better, in my book. We spent a lot of time fishing (mostly caught bass), and a lot of time swimming/floating around the lake on our air mattresses or on the water trampoline. Ahhhh, sweet bliss! In the picture above, my Dad and my sister Becky are taking the 2 little ones, Kristy and Nathan, out on the lake for a little fishing.
What appears to be a tipped over canoe is actually a "brilliant idea" from the masterminds of my Dad and my husband. Apparently, they thought it would be fun to try to canoe around the lake...UNDER WATER!!!!
After several attempts, they finally made it to the trampoline and back. We are all so proud of you two!!!
This is a picture of one of my nephews, Bradley. If you look closely, he is holding a snake that I caught. He loved that snake so much!! Too bad his mommy wouldn't let him take it home.
All in all, it was so nice to spend some relaxing time with the family. Usually are visits are so crammed in and a bit stressfull, but nice. This week though was just what I needed. Lots of games, swimming, eating, laying out, fishing, and best of all- FAMILY!!! In the picture above, I caught the newest member of our family, Emma, sleeping in the hammock....so precious!!!
