I couldn't figure out how to record our time at the lake house for Lucas' annual work-cation. I didn't want gigantic, rambling, cluttered posts. So I decided to divide it up into our favorite activities, and maybe throw a story or two in there.
First story: It was a somewhat disastrous get-away. Within minutes of getting to the lake house, Ryan fell down the stairs (only the last few - his little hand slipped out of daddy's), and ended with Ryan and I making a trip to the doctor. In between Ryan got his fingers shut in the door (if I had known where the nearest emergency room was, we would have been there before I realized it actually wasn't that bad), Allie fell and cut her head, and Allie slipped & fell on a stick (which, if it had not been for her double stuffed cloth diaper, would have been disastrous). We got covered in black fly bites, and there were innumerable other bumps, scrapes, & bruises. At one point I actually prayer that we would all just survive the trip! But, somehow, as I look back through the pictures and our memories, these events pale in comparison to the fun and relaxation we had at the lake house.
One of our favorite activities: exploring. The twins loved looking for exciting things and collecting pine cones. We loved watching them discover.
"Isa pike cone!"
"Buddy, you forgot yours!"
"No, I didn't. I found another!"
"Let's check out the field!"
"Oopsies! I can't see!"
Time to head back
