Well we are home and it is taking me some time get back in the swing of things. I think I spent all of Tuesday sleeping!
We had a wonderful time with Shay and her family, as well as our family who visited. The week leading up to our leaving to travel to the lake, I was just dreading it. So many things to think about and do, packing and shopping and cleaning etc. Two days of traveling with small children...
But as soon as we arrived, that all melted away. Even though we still had to cook and clean, we were doing it together and it was all truly relaxing. We had lots of lazy time, just soaking up the sun and enjoying the children's laughter. We ate tons of yummy food, including our weight in potato chips and I still lost 5 pounds (oops). Must be that point in pregnancy I guess. One of my favourite things was lying on my tummy on an inflatable in the water. Haven't laid on that basketball in months!
We all truly enjoyed each other's company, even when we were just laying side by side in the sun, reading. The men had a blast on the boat, pulling the kids along on the tube and wakeboard. It was a great vacation and we are looking forward to doing it again next year. Though I am sure it will be far from relaxing for me then with an 11 month old. yikes!

And no, I have no photos of either Shay or I in here. Isn't that the way it alway is? Actually there is one of me and Girly that I will put up on Immortality art, along with a bunch more shots from our holiday. Check it out!
And check out Shay's blog for more on our trip.
