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)….

  The boys ordered oysters at the restaurant on the lake one night. What’s cooler than a restaurant you can drive your boat to?? Love it.       Charley gave Jackson lots of hugs and kisses on the trip. I think she’s getting the hang of this big sister thing!    The best part of grocery shopping was the awesome car carts they had! She was one happy shopper 🙂  We spent a lot of time on the covered porch playing with babies and watching the boats go by.     It rained the whole trip down to the lake, but by the time we got to Lake Hamilton, a rainbow was waiting for us. It’s like it was saying “welcome, the weather will be beautiful for your trip!”.      This little cowgirl sat on a saddle for the first time    Kissing his piggies!    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.  IMG_3739 IMG_3713 IMG_3708GQ pose IMG_3737 IMG_3736Charlotte loved the boat!
