Memorial Day at the Lakehouse

We absolutely LOVE going to the Lake and it's wouldn't seem like a summer holiday unless we were out in the boat, eating great food and hanging with the fam.
Here's the house from the dock,

and the lake from the house

My kids have so much fun and we do a lot of relaxing which is my favorite part.

Even Ryan can't contain his smile!

GP let all the grankids "drive" the COOL GP!

Precious cousins

It's not pretty but it's documented. I can still ski-three knee surgeries later. :-)

Stacey and Ryan having fun at the neighbors

And these two munchkins couldn't get enough of each other

We also braved the "slab" which is basically a low water crossing that has a ton of granite and small currents. The kids of course loved it.

My little swimmer girl. She has NO fear of the water and loves to go swimming in the lake.

Ryan does too!

All the sisters ended up with the exact same cover up from Target.
I'm not sure what that says about us, but we thought it was hi-larious! I will forever remember this day because got some VERY EXCITING NEWS. My sister Caryn is pregnant with TWINS...TWINS y'all!!! For the whole story check out her blog here. And another amazing blessing is that my sister Kacey is also pregnant. To follow her exciting story click here. It's too much JOY for this sister to handle. It's pretty funny because I cannot tell you the number of people that have either congratulated me or told me that I need to get busy. Really funny stuff. Unless the Lord has a miracle planned for our family, we are done having babies but, I cannot wait to have THREE MORE nieces and nephews. It's SOOOO cool that they get to experience this journey together, and also SOOO cool that I can be the one to bring them crackers and orange drinks since they are both feeling pretty lousy.
This is Ally's excited face that she's going to have THREE more cousins in December!!!

We really cannot wait

Love it!! Especially Ally's excited face. :) I hadn't thought about all the comments I am sure you are getting. Not unlike all the "When are you moving to Waco?" comments I get - which I don't mind a bit, but just saying I feel ya! As much as I'd like to have you join the club we need at least one of us at full capacity or who knows what would happen!!
