Vacation: Lake Style

Ahhh, vacation! We have looked forward to this trip since last year when we went with a group of friends to Lake Hamilton in Arkansas. We decided then that this will be a yearly tradition. This year, it was just us and our good friends (more like family, really) and their little guy. It was a perfect mix of relaxing and adventure. We were fortunate enough to stay in Jenn’s parent’s BEAUTIFUL lakeside home, AND ride on their pontoon boat! Here’s a little rundown of the trip in photos (and no, they’re not in order)….

It’s like it was saying “welcome, the weather will be beautiful for your trip!”.Vacation: Lake Style    Vacation: Lake Style  This little cowgirl sat on a saddle for the first timeVacation: Lake Style  Vacation: Lake Style  Kissing his piggies!Vacation: Lake Style  Vacation: Lake Style  We were so impressed with how well Charlotte did on the looooong road trip. We left at 7:30 a.m. Thursday morning and didn’t get to the lake until 6:00 p.m. We pulled out all the entertainment we could, including learning how funny TWO binkies in the mouth is.
