We arrived in the evening on the 21st, and the kids and Philip immediately went out on the boat (to do some swimming in the middle of the lake), while I chatted with Aunt Mary and got our room set up.
The next morning, Uncle Bob took Caleb, Moriah and I out in his sailboat - how fun!
Uncle Bob was very kind and patient to teach us all the things about ducking, moving the mast, etc
I like this shot Philip got with the other sail boat in the background
There was a LOT of kayaking this year!
Before Uncle Ty, Aunt Mary, Taylor and Davis left on Friday, Uncle Ty took us out to do some tubing...

Keenan and Moriah were first out

This is the life =)

Taylor and I did a few runs...and laughed a LOT!!!

I tried the stand up paddle board for the first time ever - it's harder than it looks! =)

Papa time on the hammock
We took shrimp boil and it was enjoyed by all!
Even Caleb wanted to try out the kayak!
He did Amazingly well!
Keenan is much better on the paddle board than I
On the 23rd, Caleb went for an early morning walk with Uncle Bob.
Here are some "nature things" that Caleb and Moriah collected
Dad took this shot down from the deck
Philip did really well on the paddle board, too!

What a little stud!
