Family Vacation to the Poulson's Lake House

This weekend we had an opportunity to go to some friends of ours Lake house. It was so nice to get away from the Chaos that the weekends bring and spend sometime as a family. We also celebrated Brody's birthday when we were out there. Our whole goal of going was to just focus on the kids. And that is exactly what we did. We went fishing, kayaking, played board games, ate yummy food, made cupcakes, sang happy birthday to Brody and had a blast.

As soon as we got to the Lake house we were unpacking the kayaks and both Brody and Blake jumped right in. They were ready to go!
" Let me show you how this is done, says Blake to Brody!"

Cuddling on he couch with the boys!

Tommy and Blake just being goofy!

Brody sure was fascinated by all the fish we caught. He wanted to be right down there and a part of the action. Here he is checking out one of our great catches!

Tommy making silly faces at the camera. This is when I know that I have taken to many pictures.

Eric and Brody found a huckleberry bush and Brody decided he loves huckleberries. Him and Eric picked a bowl full and we put them in his pancakes this morning.

Eric getting the fishing poles ready! I love this picture!! He is so dang handsome!!
(not to mention the funnest dad ever!)

We caught a lot of fish, and some seaweed too!

The boys were checking out the fish, and Eric scared them by pretending it was alive and about to bite them.

All together they caught 3 fish. Tommy was proud to show us his BIG fish!

I would say fishing was the boys favorite part of the trip, but kayaking was a close second. Tommy is really good. Much better then me, he is in full control of that boat.

Brody, Eric and Blake- ready to go fishing!!

Celebrating Brody's birthday with pumpkin cupcakes! (yes his candle says nine- I am a bad mom, it was the only candle I had!)

Brody jumped right into his cupcake without any coaxing from us!

Making a cute silly face at Eric!

Opening one of his presents. He got a cow- bubble maker! He loved it.

Here he is trying to pop all the bubbles!!

Got IT!
This was such a fun weekend and I am so glad that we were able to get away and spend time together as a family!!
