We spent 5 days at a Lake House we rented this past week. We went to East Texas on Lake Palestine and took the boat to enjoy a relaxing time on the water. Our friends the Garrett's came with us and that made it even more fun. The house was really nice and had a dock right there where we could pull the boat in and go in and out as we pleased. We needed some essentials (milk for the babies, and bacon for fishing)when we got there so Amanda and I headed to the closest grocery store we could find and it was like stepping back in a time warp to the 70's. Maybe it was the lime green panelling, or maybe the lettering on everything. Isn't it just so fun?!
Here is Phoebe with her friend getting all ready to head out. See how perfect that glassy water is!
Ethen was back at his fishing again on this trip and decided to put a line out while we were out boating. He got it all set up and then tied the pole up so that when it caught a fish it wouldn't get dragged in. When we got back he had this pretty good size catfish hooked. He was pretty excited and everyone was impressed. (No, we didn't gut it and eat it. we are nice and put him back) Now that is a true Texas catch!!!
My 4 toeheads :) Paisley even took a ride on the tube and didn't want to get off when it was over. Ethen and Phoebe like to shake things up a bit on the tube and ride the edges. It makes it harder to hold on but they are laughing the whole time :) All tuckered out! There is something about the hummm of the engine that just puts them to sleep. Here is Phoebe getting up on the surfboard. I have to keep reminding myself that she is only 7.
