Belated weekend report

OK, I miss one day of work and spend three days catching up.

We spent the past weekend at my brother’s lake house.  Some of the highlights:

Yes, we packed the entire bed of the truck. For a 54 hour trip.

The first requisite "must eat poorly when on vacation" meal.

Although K didn't get the memo. That's yogurt, a low-fat muffin, and the abomination know as turkey bacon. TURKEY BACON! Just the words make me a little queasy.

J works on his checkers killer instinct:

After arriving at the lake, city-kids J and A wonder why this water doesn't have the unnatural blue hue found at the swimming pool.

Catching fish off the dock:

A liked the catching, but not the removing from the hook:

This is as close as we could get her to the fish.

K and Nana took the paddle boat out for a spin:

Once the rest of the crew showed up, K convinced A to take a ride in the real boat:

While J decided to stick closer to shore

K cooked dinner Saturday night. I'll repeat, K cooked dinner.

I call this our Kennedy moment around the dinner table at the lake. Unfortunately, we were without the Kennedy's cooks, maids, butlers, and other various hired help.

After dinner, the kids put on a talent show, complete with posters and tickets.

A’s big finish:

Saturday night ends with the obligatory “shooting fireworks into the lake.”

Sunday AM started with smiley-face chocolate chip pancakes courtesy of Aunt K.

Then back into the lake

Of course, J's favorite part of the lake was throwing rocks.

We finally pried A out of the water.

No witty caption. I just thought A looked exceptionally cute in this shot.

J is never very far from his dinosaurs. They came in handy during a little rain.

Before we left, A created a picture for the lake house refrigerator, complete with house, sand castle, sun, water, and lounge chairs. And a rock for J.

Overall, a nice way to spend the weekend.

Oh yeah, it was my birthday too.

    I guess that was Jackie Robinson’s number, but it also “fit” the weekend at the lake. What more could you ask for: Cracker Barrel, fishing, water fireworks, and etc,

    A good time was had by all.
