We Fled the Coop-But now we're back

This last weekend we decided to get away from it all, leave the cleaning, the laundry, the yard, everything--- and go have a fun at the lake. Thanks to Adam and Becky for splurging on a new boat!

Alexis was in heaven just being able to spend the day with Caleb and Zack. They both decided that they were brave enough to go on the tube by themselves-the best is when Alexis says to go faster and Caleb is telling us to slow down at the same time. Ahhh-the memories of me and Jamie and Ty doing the same thing on Grandpa's boat.

Alexis also loved showing off her new Ariel goggles, flippers and gloves.

Kyle has never been on a boat, so it was a first for him. He loved the sand and water and being able to get messy without getting in trouble. But my favorite part.....

was how his life jacket pushed his chubby cheeks together.

It was such a fun day, and I loved being able to get home at 9pm and turn the Olympics on. The fun was over the next day when Justin and I both woke up and realized we had muscles we had forgotten about for the past 2 years (YES-it's been that long since we've been on a boat, how sad is that?)

Looks like you guys had a blast. I can't believe that Caleb and Lexi got on that tube all by themselves. You'll be hearing from us hopefully tomorrow letting you know she's finally here!!
