Last Trip to the lake and we took friends...

Monday, September 22, 2014
My parents had a couple of family weddings this year and so there were 2 open lake weekends that they offered up to us for our use!  The first weekend we took Scott's sister's family and then this last time we took our good friends, The Porter's.  They go to Lake Okoboji on summer vacation so we knew they were vetted lake people!  Off we went on a weekend in August, boys in one car and girls in the other.  We stopped midway for dinner before arriving and playing before turning in for the evening.
Dinner break...

The next morning everyone got up early and despite the cloudy skies, the weather and water were warm and the kiddos were excited to test out all the toys!
The adults played and also enjoyed lounging while the kiddos hopped from the "heated pool" as Max referred to it (aka hot tub) to playing in the water, playing golf and whatever their heart desired.
The girls played in the sand for the majority of the weekend and loved it.
The boys built a tube house...
...and my mom even left a birthday cake to celebrate with!  How special!
We stayed up too late after the kids went to bed sitting on the porch by the fire and chatting...
The boys in the heated pool...
And my parents arrived home from the wedding before we left so we could spend time with them too!

It was a relaxing, no make-up, comfy clothes, lots of coffee and relaxation kind of weekend.  It was so much fun to share it with good friends!  And another lake season is in the books, we look forward to it all year and it is gone in a flash. Thank goodness for awesome memories that carry us through the year!
