It's easy to relax at the lake, as demonstrated by Jim.
The Williamsons spent some time with us, and Nathan loved the water.
Jamalyn and Margaret cooling off on a hot day.
Nathan enjoyed the WaterMat, which we purchased last year. It was fun for all, and we had lots of folks asking about it as they passed by on their boats.
An attempt at a Williamson family photo on the WaterMat.
Some more of the group arrived on Saturday, and dinner was prepared by Jennifer and Bryan, the newlyweds. Delicious chicken...
and pork tenderloin on the grill.
And when I say it was prepared by Jennifer and Bryan, you can see by this picture that it was
mostly all Bryan.
Looks good enough to eat!
Lake days seem to all run together, but I think it was Sunday morning that we saw these two young moms taking their kids for an early paddle board ride.
The lake has an 'idle only' rule before 10 am, which makes the mornings quiet and peaceful. It's nice.
Another beautiful day on the dock...
and in the water.
Here, Princess Margaret is being attended by her footman, Matthew.
A royal wave from her water carriage.
Ella and her daddy were relaxing on the dock, when we noticed a runaway boat floating our way.
Our neighbors were painting their dock when the boat got away. Andrew and Matthew held on to the boat while the neighbor boy swam out to hop on board.
Alli and Haleigh played together in the oasis.
Ella is getting better and better at walking, even with a life jacket on.
And don't worry, she's not drinking that beer, but she does like playing with the empty bottle.
Emma had a good weekend at the lake, and had fun on the dock and in the water.
Haleigh and Aunt Fer on the WaterMat.
Aunt Fer taught her how to make a fish face.
Cooling off in the baby pool on the dock.
Emma spent some time floating too.
She tried out the WaterMat as well.
So much fun...
walking on the water.
Cousin Dara got into the act, and had a good time playing with Margaret and Matthew.
David and Shylah,
Darci and Haleigh,
and Kyle (David's fraternity brother) and his wife Kristen.
Stay tuned for weekend, part II, coming soon.
