Even preschool has a spring break. We had two goals for the week. One, spend a relaxing weekend together as a family, and two, potty train Penny. First goal, no problem. (The second goal may be pie in the sky, but, moving on...) We took the kids to the lake for an extended weekend of slow-paced family time. We got to visit with Uncle Clint and some friends, shop, go for walks, feed the deer and throw rocks in the lake. With only a few hiccups, namely, Ralph getting sprayed by a skunk on the FIRST night, we were able to do exactly what we set out to do: Relax and decompress. Nobody wanted to go home when it was time!
|Brass Pro Shops is one of our favorite stops when we are nearby...|
The kids love the fish tank and Daddy and Mama can always find something to buy.
|Ice cream break! Penny said, "Look at my face! I mess!"|
|Throwing rocks into the lake is Coop's favorite lake activity.|
|Ralph and Brewster had fun too...|
(Poor Dooley didn't get to go. We couldn't fit three dogs in the car so she had to stay with Ma-Mas)...
|Old hat Ralph shows rookie Brewster a thing or two.|
|On our "dam" walk.|
|This shot wasn't as dangerous as it looks...|
|More rock throwing... OK so we ALL like to throw rocks...|
|But Cooper shows the most joy in it...|
