Hello From Lake Hamilton!

Hello from Lake Hamilton!
We are having an absolute blast.
As I said 2 years ago when we last visited as a family, the lake house is a boys' paradise.
They're in their element.
Sweet boys.
Lots of UNO games taking place as usual.
And LOTS of time on the boat.
Doesn't get much better!
Trysten and I
Brothers!
Food on the grill at the lake is perfection.
The usual minor surgeries are taking place.
What kind of surgeries you ask?
Why getting splinters out from the deck of course.
We brought both of our dogs,
which means dogs from all over the hood are at our back door wanting to play.
Speaking of the neighborhood dogs,
2 of them are obsessed with giving the boys "piggyback rides" as Carter says.
Observe:

Trysten is keeping us entertained as always.
Such a sweet kid.
Ryan once again managed to surprise me on vacation.
Seriously.
How did I get this damn lucky?
A card?
On vacation?
Yes, please.
I'm a lucky girl.
We ventured away from the lake house for a bit of action of a different sort.
We're quite a large crew.
Time for some go karts!
"The Teenager" has been so much fun to be around this trip.
Such a handsome kid.
Sweet little Carter.
Trysten was so excited that he was tall enough to drive all by himself.
Maybe next year, Preston!
Next up, bumper boats!
This is Austin's friend, Ryan, that came with us.
Great kid.
Love these boys...
Miniature golf, anyone?
Okay!

We took the boys to eat at The Fisherman's Wharf right on the lake.
The fed the ducks while we waited for our food.
Love =)
Herb encrusted talapia, grilled shrimp, catfish, clam chowder, oysters
Let's eat!
I heart this family!

More fun on the way tomorrow
with another big day on the lake!
See you later, friends!
