Lakeside Memories

Early June, Kingston and I were invited to go to Lake Ouachita, AR with our great family friends the Mahone's! I was so excited! I have gone almost every summer since I was 14 with Michelle. This would be the first time to be back there and have both of our boys!

We were off... Kingston and I drove the 3 1/2 hour drive! Just like his Mother, Kingston slept the entire way. What a nice drive it was!

We finally made it... and we couldn't get to the "GREAT COBALT" fast enough! Kingston's first time to put on the orange life jacket... Let's just say it was like putting a stray jacket on a cat that just got a bath!

BUT, after much distraction... snacks and of course BALLS... KHK knew he would be OKAY!

One loaded down banana!
Starting from the front: Maylee, Ella, Hadley (Michelle's Nieces,) Leigh Anne (Michelle's sister-in-law), Kingston, Me, Landon, and Michelle!

After tubing, Captain Wesley took us to a cove so the kiddo's to take a dip. I have never been one to swim around in the lake! I tried to keep Kingston in the boat, but that lasted all of about 2 minutes after he saw everyone else. What the KING wants... the KING gets!
BUT, let the record show... I AM STILL NOT A LAKE SWIMMER!

After a yummy dinner, at the Shangri-La Diner, we took the boys for a wagon ride.

Kingston telling Landon some Baby Jokes!

Back out on the water...
We retired the banana... Moving onto THE MOLECULE!!!
Kingston was never scared (he gets that honest!) In fact, he fell asleep on this ride!

Picture Break with Mama!

We still can't believe that we were here with OUR BOYS! Oh, how our lives have FOREVER changed!

Kingston and I had so much fun making"NEW Lake Ouachita Memories" with the Mahone Family! Thanks again for taking us for the ride...

What a great way to kick off Summer 2010!
