Lake Trip - Memorial Weekend

We love that our family has a place at the lake. Its a 3 hour drive for us, so we don't get to go as often as we'd like. But when we do get the chance to go, its always a blast. Lots of fun on the water, some relaxation, and always lots of food. This Memorial Day Weekend we loaded up the car (it seriously looked like we were moving) and made the trip on Friday after work. Of course it took us longer than expected, we had to stop too many times, and each stop lasted way longer than it should have. I guess with 3 kids I should be used to this, but I always seem to forget. But we eventually made it and had 3 full days of fun in the sun. 

Headed out on the boat the first day.
Brooks DESPISED his life jacket!!
Had to take his mind off of it. 

First attempt at fishing...
No luck that we moved on to this....
Brody and Matt tubing...Brody LOVED this.
So it was my turn to try it out with him. I was surprised at how much fun this tube actually was.
Not pictured...My sis Shelley and I rode together, and our little brother was driving the boat. Apparently he had lots of built up aggression towards us that he took out on us on this ride. I thought I was going to die multiple times.
I don't have any photos of day 2. After church, we headed down to the sandbar/beach area. We had packed a lunch and had a beach picnic. We spent the day playing in the water and out on the fast boat and tubes. By the end of the day, we were all pretty exhausted but it was loads of fun!!

On the boat ride back to the house.
Sleeping while sitting up
Carson didn't sleep, of course, so he got to drive.
On Monday we headed out for one more attempt at fishing so we could have a fish fry for lunch before we headed back home.

Waiting patiently....
And it paid off! They caught one at the same time!
Still examining his fish
Catching one more. The boys caught quite a few fish and were loving it. Looks like we have some pro fishermen on our hands. 
Not a great pic from my phone, but they also loved riding the golf cart around everywhere. 

Hopefully we'll get to head back to the lake again this summer!!
