All Good Things Must Come To An End!


 Hello, friends!
Despite the fact that our family vacation did not take us to some exotic locale,
it was by far one our best ever.
Why, you ask?

Let's see:
1. Lots of family togetherness relaxing and goofing off
2. The kids got along REMARKABLY well
3. The backdrop was a perfect for a family of active boys
4. Did I mention the kids got along really well?

The boys loved that the neighbor's dogs were all over the place! 
And I do mean ALL over the place.
Going out on the boat never got old.
Just hanging out
I love these boys!
And this man.
Be still my heart. =)
When not on the boat,
the boys were still on the lake.
Pushing each other in:
But then helping each other out
And finally passing out at the end of the day...

It truly was a blast.
Even the car trip home was fun.
I was a little nervous about not having the DVD player to keep the boys entertained during the ride,
since our rental car {mine is STILL in the shop} was without one, but it was great!
Get this: 
We actually laughed and talked as a family instead of driving in silence
while the kids' ears were attached to headphones.
Amazing.
I know.
One thing that really touched me was when Austin told Ryan how much he loved him being his step father.
Friends, it was awesome.
Our little family has come a long way over the past 4+ years.
It just keeps getting better.
When you're a blended family,
the time you have together is precious because it doesn't happen every day,
and taking the time out to talk about the good things is priceless.
Warmed my heart for sure.

Until next time, Lake Hamilton...
We love you!!

Do you guys only go to the lake house once a year? I guess it's kind of a long drive.
So glad it was a blast! You know we love the lake!!
