Saturday at the Lake House

Our neighbors have a lake house at Lake Mattoon and when they extended the invitation to spend Saturday at their lake to celebrate Stella's birthday, we jumped at the chance. We were all so excited to be away on the most beautiful Memorial Day Saturday!

Alaric and Stella get ready to get on the boat.
Sylvia gets ready too
The children were wonderful on the boat- the life preservers, the water- everything!
Sippy Cups and Beer= heaven!
Alaric was SO excited to be on the boat- he could hardly contain himself
Look at the perfect weather we had ( oh, and the cute guy in the picture too)
Sarah and Sylvia were so relaxed, they even tried to take a catnap!The kids rotated on the boat to be with all the different adults.
Right across from the Miller's house there is a sandbar area where the water is only a few feet deep. We threw our anchor in and played in the water some.

Not all of us got in all the time. Stella and Alaric manned the boat for awhile too. They also served as beer fetchers when needed.

Happy Fifth Birthday, Stella!
The Miller's Lakehouse!
Amara, who hardly ever goes to anyone but me and Brian, loves Matt. She snuggled with him for a few minutes and pointed out every boat that passed by!
We hung out for awhile, had an amazing dinner with the Miller's family, opened gifts, and then decided to get on the boat one more time before we had to leave.
Less kids with us this time ( The Miller girls wanted to watch a movie but the Fulton kids were desperate to get back on the boat), we were able put the tube on the water.
Brian was awesome

Sarah was the best though. Matt kept trying to throw her off but she held on and was a rock star the whole time!
We watched the sunset from the boat and I got to snuggle with each of my babies!
Millers...thanks for an awesome day on the lake! You have a beautiful home and were amazing hosts to us. Thanks for making our weekend extra special!
