|Soon after we got there Jonathan tackled Spencer with pillows. Whenever one fell on the floor Spencer flopped right on top of it. He thought they were pretty comfy.|
|We canned 26 jars of pickles one day. We smelled like garlic and vinegar the next.|
We also got to play a little bit. I visited a couple friends from my high school days. One of them had just had twins, so precious. Another was one of my best friends and a roommate in college. It was fun to talk to her and spend a little more time getting to know her husband.
|Just a comfy spot to read a book. Like I said, a true vacation.|
|Charlotte loves the sand.|
We relaxed, played, worked and just generally enjoyed taking a break and being with family. It was a good vacation, a real vacation.
|The kids and their new friend. They were covered with chalk. I hope her parents still like me!|
|The kids make chalk paint. They think it's hilarious. I hate trying to get all the blue tint off their faces.|
|Digging a tench.|
|Spencer just wandered. He'd find a shovel and just sit right down and dig for a while. He was happy just to be outside in the sand.|
|Filling buckets and splashing in the lake.|
|The view across the lake from the beach. It was a really nice day.|
|The kids enjoyed their corn out by the fire pit. They followed it down with some s'mores.|
|We had to have our girl's night. Polka dots ruled this time. Next time I want to try chevron stripes.|
