Fun In The Sun!

After church on Sunday, we headed to the lake to spend some time with our family. Alex took Monday off, so we were able to stay Sunday night and all day Monday.

Amelia gave lots of love while we were there.

We played on the water...

This was right before I thought I was going to die! HA! Joy was enjoying every minute of it. :) My throat was so sore the next day. At first, I couldn't figure out why, but finally realized it was from laughing and screaming while tubing! (LOL)

The boys had a good time!

Joy and Cody won for hanging on to the tube for the longest period of time!

I took Amelia down to swim for a little while. She would just kick her feet...she did really well. :)

My Aunt Sandi set up this ball pit for Amelia to play in. She LOVED IT! We're definitely going to be looking for one of these. I think it would make a good 1st birthday present. :)

Amelia loved Kealee. They played together for a long time. Kealee was so sweet with her.

Aunt Joy gave Amelia her first taste of watermelon. She wasn't a fan.

I tried to give her a corn cob to chew on. She wasn't a fan of that either. (LOL)

After a long day, we had the best dinner. My Aunt Sandi grilled steak, chicken, & corn on the cob. We also had some yummy desserts! I made a flag cake for the first time. I think I will be making one of these every year, it was so easy and tasty!

It was a day of fun in the sun!

We love our family.

Love to all,

No worries, wait until she gets older, her southern roots will learn to appreciate some good corn and watermelon :)

That looks like such a fun day! I love the lake. I am laughing at Amelia's faces when she is trying corn and watermelon! haha I personally think that all sounds WONDERFUL! Some of my very favorite summer treats.

Ashley and I were just saying the other day that we both think Amelia is seriously one of THE CUTEST babies around! She is just precious!! :)

Lake days are so fun! That giant tube looks like it was a blast. Love the pics from your fun family day.

I agree with Betsy and Ashley - Amelia is just the cutest! I really hope that one day soon I can hug that precious miracle baby =)

Love to you!

Your family always looks like they have so much fun! I love the one when she was trying the corn on the cob. Her face is like, hmmmm I don't know about that one mom! Don't you just love the summer months? ((hugs))
