Summer at the Lake 2017 Round 3

Jaaten asked for a mermaid tail for her birthday.  SOOOOO we give it to her a couple days early so she can try it out but she didn't want to get it dirty in the lake.  OMG!!!   7.9.17
 The paddle boat!!  Wow!  Our friends down the way at the lake had this paddle boat growing up.  Their parents just brought it to them to have for their kiddos.  So awesome!  We all loved it! 7.10.17

 Little evening fishing off our dock brought this catfish for Steel.  He was SO excited to get the biggest fish this summer! 7.10.17

Mom and the boys loving this hammock at our friend Jim and Sharon's dock! 7.11.17

HAPPY 8TH BIRTHDAY, Pretty Girl!  We all love you to the moon!  You keep this family on our toes. ;)  7.13.17  We went to Grammie and Papa's house for a little family birthday celebration in the morning.  Jaaten wanted to swim in their pool with her new mermaid tail too! HA! 

Someone lost a front tooth while we were at the lake....AND was SO EXCITED!!  7.15.17

Last night we were at the lake, this guy made it on to our patio!  Scared the pee out of me! AGH!!  7.14.17

Jaafe and the boys made the long drive back to AZ together.  They stopped in Yukon, OK for some cousin fun!  Soap on a trampoline = BEST FUN EVER! 7.15.17

Hudson singing Call Me Maybe....wish the video worked....funniest thing ever! 7.15.17 
She is getting so big!!  We came home to this big palomino baby....with no name. ;/ 

Summer at the Lake 2017 Round 2

Jaafe and I went back to AZ for a couple weeks to work and the kids stayed with Grammie and Papa's.  We have done this in previous years but the kids were smaller.  This year seemed to be the hardest for everyone.  The boys had a harder time than Jaaten and I didn't do well at all.  Ha!  They had fun with Grammie and Papa though.  They swam, played mini golf, went to Kaleidoscope, saw a movie, stayed up as late as they wanted and ate almost whatever they wanted.  Life is good at Grammie and Papa's house!

Jaafe and I got back to the lake on July 1st late night.  July 2nd we had a full day.  Our sweet neighbor Luke had a birthday party....then we brought the water slide/bounce house across the street fro the rest of the afternoon.  SO MUCH FUN!

4th of July doubled as donut day since we missed it Sunday. ;)  Biggest donut ever! 7.4.17

The morning of the 4th was rainy for the ski show and kiddo activities at the club but turned out fun. ;)

Temp tattoos!

Potato sack races....LOL....Jaaten won second place.  She was so mad!  LOL!

We didn't find a turtle for the turtle races this year and Steel was so bummed!  He was so happy to hold this turtle after the races though!

Fireworks at Grammie and Papa's is always a favorite for the kids.  It makes me nuts! 


Love this boy!  Nighttime boat ride to watch the fireworks at the dam. Love!

Our sweet friend Jess came to the lake for a week this year!  The kids absolutely love her and we always love to have her. ;)  Too bad the kids woke her up EVERY morning and wanted her to make SnapChat videos. HAHAHA!  She is such a good sport!

Daytime pontoon ride with Papa. ;) Heart content. ;)  7.6.17

We went out ONE night the whole time we were in Missouri!  Life at the lake is a little better than the bar!  ;)))  7.8.17

Extra Large beer pong game turns into a turtle house. ;/  7.9.17

Jaaten and these glasses!  Grammie found these gems....shocker!

Animal LOVER!  I thought he was going to squeeze the life out of this little frog!  Ha!

My long time friend Zach and his awesome wife Katie brought their kiddos to the lake!  What troopers they are!  The packed up FOUR kiddos (including a new baby) and brought them out to play!  LOVE!  7.9.17
