Our routine basically the entire week was pretty awesome. We did nothing :) Okay, we did more than nothing, but, I got up, worked out, came back, would nap or read while Connor napped, kids would wake up, eat lunch, go to the pool, come back, nap or read while the kids napped, then go out for supper. Pretty awesome, no? I thought so :) It's exactly what I wanted to do. We went shopping one afternoon, there was only one rain day which we spent at the giant water park for the afternoon, went out on the lake and even had a date night. Mom and Dad went out for an early supper then Joe, Krystal, Bryan and I went to an awesome steakhouse. We sat in separate rooms (hostess thought this was a little strange since we came together) to make it more of a 'date' :)
I will admit, I was a HORRIBLE vacation photographer. I barely have any photos. And as you can see, the bulk are basically on our way home or one day I was feeling guilty about my lack of photos and took a bunch of the kids on the deck. Boring. I know. Sorry. However, warning, this is a massively long post. Sorry about that :)
Okay, and now that I'm working on this post, it's going to be two posts. It's getting to be too many (somewhat pointless) photos.
so someone needs to invent comfortable, functional life vests for babies.
and two seconds later,wide awake. this happened all too frequently :)
the house with a really cool lake-supplied waterfall. Gave dad lots of ideas I'm sure :)
sweet Ashlyn and her beautiful mama. Okay, so Ashlyn isn't looking SUPER sweet here, but she still is :)
asleep when we arrived at the restaurant...doesn't look too comfy. Amazing how kids seem to be able to sleep anywhere.
Joe and Krystal
actually fairly happy with this one! However, my small camera seems to be having quality issues, not sure what's up.
Who you gonna call? Ghostbusters!
me and my cell phone obsessed baby.
Ashlyn and Krystal
the group...plus Captain Ron.
Joe and Connor. Connor is still a little unsure of Joe. He'll come around :) Once he sees the amazingly cool tractors that Uncle Joe has...he'll be sold.
pretty good example of the homes on the lake.
the following pictures are fairly pointless. I just thought his expressions were cute.
And, yes, we were 'that car' on the road. Thankfully, we made it there and back with everything still secure :)
Oh, did I mention the men got to fly? Yeah. Losers. One of Joe's neighbors is a pilot and is in the aviation program at MNSU, so he flew them there on Wednesday and picked them up on Saturday. Oh well, it made sense, why drive 10 hours to only be there two days.
An aerial shot. You can kind of see the formation of the lake.
Another new hobby of Connor, sitting in the drivers seat of the car.
