Our Weekend at the Lake

We spent this last weekend camping at the lake with 3 other families. It was over 100 degrees every day so to keep from dehydration and serious grumpyness, we rented a pop-up camper trailer with some cool A/C. This is sooo my kind of camping! We spent Friday evening and Saturday on the boat having lots of water fun and at night, after roasting some mallows and making smores, the kids went to bed while the adults stayed up and got really tired. It was a great weekend and was nice to get away and get the kids unplugged and have family time. I was really proud of Ethen for getting all the fishing stuff together and catching a fish all on his own.
He was sooooo happy to come show me his catch. I am pretty sure that will count to pass off a scouting merit badge or at least an arrow point :)! I was also so proud of Phoebe for getting on the boat and even taking some rides. It was her 1st time back out after splitting her chin open. SHe brought all her nail polish and lotion and painted almost everyone's nails and gave foot massages. Much fun was had by all :)
