Back From The Lake!

We just had an AWESOME week with our best friends, at the lake, somewhere else in the south! We met our friends, 10 years ago, within a few months of moving to the city we live in and we've been great friends ever since... Our kids have grown up together... The adults have grown up together... We go to church together... Scott and R. work together... L. and I are in Bible study together and we live 3 houses apart (we hired a sitter and went looking for our houses together!)...

They've ridden the ups and downs of our lives with us and they are such a blessing to us... I've lost track of how many summers we've gone to the lake, but every summer, L's parents are so generous to let us come to their lake house for a week and we have a BLAST! It's an extra treat when her parents come and hang out with us some... I LOVE her mom and dad...

But anyway, this was an extra special year since it was Abby's first trip to the lake... The girl is a trooper! She tried it all! Swimming... Tubing... An impossible photomosaic puzzle (L and I do puzzles every summer)... And get this... Fishing!! She LOVED fishing!!

I'll post some of my favorite photos here and put a bunch more on my photo blog...!

2 Years ago, we did a family trip to the beach... My uncle S. (from a Tribute to Pocket T's) challenged Nick to a bet... Whoever caught the next fish, the other had to eat the eyeball (Totally gross!) So Uncle S lost the bet and had to eat the eyeball... Nick of course accepted the re-challenge and lost the second time... So this next photo is a tribute to my uncle!!

Love, love, love the photos of the kids. Both these and the ones on your photo site. The shots with them on the tube and the movements of the water are great. I felt like I was there!

Wow, wow, wow, the roses are beautiful. I think #'s 1,6,9, and 12 are my favorite.

So glad you all enjoyed. Love you,
Mom

Love the photo of the kids on the tube! And I hope Nick removed the hook before swallowing that lure. ;)

Sharla,

Your pictures are amazing. I loved them all especially the roses! Those are worthy of being framed and hung on the wall. I love Abby's picture with her missing tooth too!

Hugs,
Robin
