Weekend at the lake!

We went to the lake last weekend. We left after school, and made it in time to go out for dinner with Justin's parents and to Arnold's Park for a few rides.

We even let the kids ride the train without us. :)

We went through the Tipsy House. It had probably been 6 years since I had done that. I could easily go another 6 years without going through it. 

Saturday was super windy and cloudy. Justin and I went for a nice run with lots of hills and lots of wind. I thought I might die.

We had lunch at the Gardens and did a little shopping.

Jayla loves to try on hats!

While we were at lunch, Jordyn dropped her new putty ball on the floor and it rolled under a little glass wall/fence into the lake! The water moved it just the perfect direction, and Justin was able to grab it and save the day. Ha!

We sat on the dock for a bit, but it just wasn't ideal boating weather.

We were suppose to be in the line of some pretty big storms, but they missed us! :)

After dinner, the adults played dominoes.

Talk about a HUGE disappointment when I lost by 4 whole points to Justin's dad. I would have won, but Justin messed up my last move, and I lost.

After dominoes, we noticed the wind had completely died down and it was super calm outside, so we took a late boat ride to Barefoot for ice cream! It was so much fun!

The kids had never been on the boat in the dark, and they loved it!

It was cold on Sunday morning (which we knew it was suppose to be), so after breakfast we packed up and headed home. We were bummed that we couldn't do much for water activities, but we still had a great time!

OH -- One last thing!!!
We bought two of these on Saturday ...

We have been looking at buying paddle boards for 3 years now, and we finally did it!! We bought the inflatable ones (very similar to the ones we used in Canada), so we are able to transport them from our house to the lake easily. They weigh about 40 pounds and fit nicely into a backpack.

I am pretty excited about this purchase!!

Making a library!

Megan and I are club coordinators for GEMS this year. Last Thursday, the two of us along, with Allison, Kristi and Madison, spent the evening making decorations for Theme Night. It was a bigger project than we thought, but our "library" turned out great!!

Jax & Mom!

Jax and I have had a lot of time with just the two of us since the girls started school. We have had fun!

First day of school!

 The girls started school last Wednesday ... 1st grade and Kindergarten! Ahh - why does time go so fast??!!

It was such a cold morning - coldest morning of the summer! It didn't seem right that the girls had to wear pants and boots on the first day!

Both girls had a great drop off! I managed to hold back the tears, as this one walked in to Kindergarten ...

... and this one in to 1st grade.

Jordyn has some super sweet friends from Kindergarten!

Both girls had GREAT first days and were all smiles when Jax and I picked them up!
