Friday was the end of the first week of school. I picked up Pumpkin and we got busy packing. Last minute Pumpkin’s Spanish class fell through and we decided to head to the lake Friday instead of Saturday. Heath worked late and then picked up Peanut and then helped finish up packing. We hit up Subway for 3 footlongs and got on the road.
We got there just before dusk.
We let the kids run around and we unpacked and found a room. Stooks and the Sanders were already there, the Dwyers were a bit behind us and the Pottebaums were coming out in the morning. We got the kids down then hung out on the porch and had some drinks.
In the morning we made breakfast and the kids played.
We were like the last family up and breakfast was cooking, Heath and I snuck in some quick runs before we ate. Then we took a little boat ride.
We just did a quick tour of the whole lake and let everyone take a turn driving.
It was pretty hot when we got back and everyone was ready to jump in the lake.
That made us thirsty.
and eventually hungry
After lunch we got little kids napping and big kids playing away from them and we went out for adventures
After our overloaded padleboat adventure we took the real boat to a cardboard regatta race.
Unfortunately our boat died right when we got there and we drifted right into the middle of it. We found a loose connection on the battery and got it running again and headed back after the last race.
The kids were up and it was time for tubing rides.
All the kids got a turn or two and many of the adults also.
We tubed and swam a bunch then we were starving and made up a giant Mexican dinner. It was really good. As the sun moved away we got out the football and started a pickup game.
I hurt my toe and had to call it quits and no one took my spot so we called it a game. Then the peewee league moved in.
We hung out and played and finished our sangria
Then got the kids in bed.
And started a fire.
The rest of the night we just hung out by the fire until we got too tired. In the morning Briana made cinimon rolls
and Jon made eggs.
It was great
Then we put on swimsuits and jumped off the dock.
We also jumped off eachother
We swam a bunch then grilled up a bunch of burgers
The kids were tired so we cleaned everything up and packed our stuff.
Then headed home.
The rest of Sunday we cleaned our house and unpacked and got ready for the week.
