Family Lake Trip 2012

We had an amazing time at my parents place at Tablerock Lake. It was so cool that they actually LIVE there now! We got to try new restaurants and shopping because they know the inside scoop now. It truly is paradise and I am so happy for them for taking this plunge so early in life! There home looks beautiful, but I never remembered to take pictures. The grandkids definitely took over the "decor" while we were there. I will remember next time...

Our pace and agenda was different this time as compared to years past. We sat around more, skied less, and went to bed early. Beau wrote a song called "Geriatric State of Mind" to sum up our laziness. So funny!!! While it was different, it was still perfect. Exactly what we needed.

Sorry for the picture overload, but I just couldn't edit it down any further!

Next generation of flip-flops!

My sister and fam on the giant tube. Her kids are fearless!


The deck was the perfect giant playpen for Tripp!

Cricket hunting...important work being done here!


"Mom, are you sure I don't look silly...I feel a little silly."

This girl was a little reluctant of the huge lake. She preferred to stay on the dock most of the time.

Sweet Bennett!

RT on the wakeboard. He has still got it even in his 30's!

Beautiful cousins

Yes, we know we are in trouble. DRAMA!


Tripp and Ya-ya...one of my favorites!

Let's just say, this did not end well!





My parents found a great beach for the kids to play on. They were having so much fun!

One of their neighbors had a whole train room. The kids (and dads) were in awe!

Date night! My parents took the kids to Veggie Tales Live on the 4th. We went to great area called the Landing.

Me and my sister. LOVE her!

This picture cracks me up! Richard with my diaper bag and the boys in the same shorts.  Work it!

  1. I absolutely LOVE the picture of you and Tripp in the water. I have a picture of me and my Dad when I was around Tripp's age in the water at TableRock and I had on a white little sun hat. So sweet. Glad y'all had a good time!
