This wasn't Eddie's first boat ride ever. That was last year. (there is more there about how we know this super family, if you need the background) Seriously...I can hardly remember how little he was then! Well, it's been nine months since then, and we find ourselves right back on the Crystal Lee. This time Eddie is big enough for a life jacket.
Cort took the "max and relax" attitude about the trip. Wait...so did the rest of us. Seriously? The lake was like glass! It was such a smooth, soothing ride!
We loaded up the dingy and in about five hundred trips, all of us (9 adults and 3 kids and 2 dogs) were hauled up to the beach.
I am kicking myself right now for not bringing my little "point and shoot" camera along, and I wasn't about to take my zillion dollar camera on the beach with all the sand and water, so I missed out on taking pics of Eddie's first beach day. He was SOOO cute! Loved the sand (ate his fair share of it) and didn't mind the water (although it was pretty chilly). He crawled and played like he OWNED that beach! And man did he woo the ladies!
And about two seconds after the motors fired back up, this little guy was out like a light! BIG day of sun and fun for this one!
Seriously...he was O U T out.
When we got back to dock it was time to eat! Jason fired up the grill and we had burgers and whole spread.
We all had such an awesome day!
I don't think we can express enough how much we love days like this. We are so graciously taken in by people we love for a beautiful day on the lake--a place we love. A place where we come to be with family. And boy howdy, did we feel the family love this weekend!
And it's just the start of summer!
