our happy place...

we went up to the lake on saturday just to do our usual relaxing routine...swim and play in the water, cruise around on the boat, take naps inside the quiet peaceful lakehouse, and then eat dinner of mamaw's yummy chicken-n-dumplins while at the farmhouse before heading back home. it's always a good time. so i brought my new camera up and tried to test out taking some action shots. here are a few...jay can throw lyla up and out of the water all day long. and she absolutely loves it. as for abby? no ma'am. no way. she doesn't like to get the top of her hair wet. needless to say, i love their two different personalities.

later we all cruised around on the boat. this is our best attempt at soaking up some sun on an overcast day. the girls always want to sit in daddy's lap and help him drive the boat. honking the horn is always fun too, and let's not forget that thanks to tita karmie, it is always tradition now to scream while driving under every bridge...and the girls never forget to do this. here are some pics...we needed to fill up the boat with gas so off to rock creek marina we went. sammy was there with a friendly hello and a helping hand out of the boat as he pumped our gas. abby and lyla always head straight inside to get a bag of crackers so that they can feed the fish. today must have been a slow day of customers because the huge fish were ready and hungry for us. here are some pics...while we drove around and played on the boat, mamaw was inside the lakehouse watching baby jem-jem for us. we walked back up, changed into dry clothes, lounged around, cleaned up, and then drove to the farmhouse for dinner. while at dinner, the mitchelles called us and invited us over to their house for the night to just hang out, catch up, listen to music, let the kids play, and enjoy our favorite beverage. they even provided me with some mango smirnoff. i love those guys. we also played around with our new cameras. here are some pics...
