Mission Lake House...Complete!

We're back from the lake and I am so thrilled to report that it was an UN-eventful weekend.  In our world, uneventful is a wonderful thing!  Lucy has talked about this trip for a long time and I was tentative about how it would go.  She never got in the water but I didn't really expect her to.  It's usually pretty cool in late May.  She did, however have a great time riding on the boat, visiting with our friends, spending quality time with the fam and she loved driving the boat!  All in all it was a wonderful weekend.  (the only thing missing was my sweet grandparents who always spend this weekend with us)

I found myself saying "thank you Lord" a million times a day.  We all headed home with very grateful hearts.

I love their answer when asked "what happened to the tow rope?"

A trip to the lake just isn't the same without a visit with the Williams

Boat Captain!!

Lucy has found a new love for Chocolate

A teenager in the making.  Yikes!

My Dad had a mini-me all weekend long.  It was the most precious site.  Here Jack is helping him wash the boat.  

This is Jack's new pose.  He stands and walks with his hands behind his back.  Like a little man for sure.  I like how he is observing Erik and my Dad working and he seems to really be taking it all in.
