A Day at the Lake

Last Sunday, the hubs and I were discussing how we just couldn't wait to start celebrating the warm weather months with barbecues and beach trips. We've been barbecuing with several of our friends for the last couple of weeks now, and we decided it was time to get to the water. Instead of trying to a make a large trip to the beach, we just loaded up and headed over to a local lake instead.

It was GORGEOUS! We had some thunderstorms the last couple of days, but today was full of bright sunshine and nice breezes. We didn't have to worry about the kids getting dragged under by the waves, it was TONS less crowded than the beach, just laid back, easy FUN.

Even Calvin got in on the water action. He LOVED it. He just kicked back in his little boat and splashed in the water, and just enjoyed himself. While us girls were swimming with the kids and soaking up the sun, the boys manned the grill and cooked up some hamburgers and dogs.

We munched on some snacks and played in the sand. We just had ourselves a grand ol' time.

Right before we loaded up to leave, some ducks made their way over to the shore. The kids went nuts and threw them an entire bag of puff corn, which made for some very happy ducks.

All in all, it was a simply fantastic day and yet another reminder of why I could never move away from here. I LOVE my friends. We have a great time wherever we are and the company is always enjoyable. I can't wait to go back. We are all thinking of buying some season passes so we can head on over whenever we want.

Great pictures. It looks like a good time was had by all! (Given the alligator situation, you know how I feel about lakes, but this looks fun.)
