Christy invited us to her lake house for fall break. It wasn't too cold yet and Abby and I were thrilled to be able to go. We felt bad leaving Benjamin behind, but he doesn't love water sports, so we figured that he wouldn't be too jealous.
It was so nice. I can't even describe how nice. It just felt like a vacation. It was very relaxing and peaceful. I loved getting to go. The girls played and played all day every day and I barely saw them except for our structured activities.
This was the view from the beach/dock.
|Abby quickly got herself muddy. I couldn't keep her out of the water, even though it was a little bit chilly.|
|Abigail's highlight of the trip was driving the boat. How fun to get to be at the wheel and to feel completely in control.|
|G. is so sweet with the little girls, he is a great big brother and Abby loves him.|
|This photo was staged. They had been cuddling and then separated. I had to ask them to cuddle back together for a picture. These two have practically been like sisters this year.|
|It was so fun to see turtles sunbathing on our slow drive to the marina.|
|We even had a bonfire with s'mores and ghost stories.|
We also enjoyed some fun off-roading with the ATV's and UTV's
|Seriously, this was a luxury vacation. So much fun.|
The only downside was that after a week of nonstop play, the girls weren't as excited about having to do a structured preschool the next week.
