We had a great last weekend at the lake over Labor Day. I feel like we were just putting the boat in over Memorial Day and now it is already time to take it out. The summer always flies by, but it completely flew by this year due to a certain little girl that was born smack dab in the middle of it! We didn't get to the lake much this year, but I am thinking next summer we'll make up for it!
It has changed colors over the years, but it's still the same bench where the love began! Ha! This was Craig and I right after we got engaged (don't we look young and skinny! HA!) And on the right is us the night before our wedding.
I think it is pretty amazing that we can now sit at our special bench with our kids. I would have never dreamed that someday we would be blessed enough to have a son and daughter to bring here with us.
Kerigan's first trip to the lake! She loved it! She's a lake girl already!
With Ga Ga and Papa at the seawall.
It was so special bringing my daughter to the place that I grew up and love so much. Clear Lake holds countless memories for me, and I started coming to the lake when I was about 9 months old. I am beyond blessed to get to share our love of the lake with my kids. I am so happy that they love it so much!
Playing at the park by the beach... (Andrew was making faces through the holes!)
Usually Andrew loves to play in this fountain over the 4th of July, and he thought this weekend would be no different! Ha! It was super chilly outside- a perfect "fall" day. I had to literally keep him from running straight into the water! I was a little nervous he was going to when I took this picture! Ha!
After spending some time downtown, we headed out for lunch at one of our favorite spots- the Barrell Drive In. It is one of those neat old places where you actually still order from your table by phone! Andrew is always fascinated by this. We have to hold the reciever down because he picks the phone up constantly and says "say hello?" It is pretty funny. I'm sure the staff listening to the buzzer go off the entire time we are there are thrilled too. Ha!
After lunch we headed to check in to our hotel. We got a bigger room this time that is a suite so they have a separate smaller room attached to the big room so Kerigan waking up in the night wouldn't wake up everyone! It worked out perfectly for all of us to stay.
I think the hotel is pretty much Andrew's favorite thing! He loves jumping on the beds and singing "Five Little Monkeys!"
He loves snuggling in bed with his sister too! If he had his way, he would sleep with her every night!
We bring her into his bed when we say prayers and tuck him in and he always wants her to stay. It is so sweet. I'm sure someday these two will sneak and play lots of tricks on this mama!
This little bathing beauty hung out with mama in the pool trying not to get splashed by big brother! But when she did get splashed, she didn't seem to mind! I think she's a water lover already! She is my daughter, after all!
Proof that I was there and I did get in the water! See, I don't spend the entire time taking pictures! (Just most of it! Ha!)
Those chubby legs crack me up! I am so not used to having a chubby baby, I love it! I just hope she's not bigger than her brother in a few years! Ha!
More to come on our Labor Day fun!!
