We had a blast! All of us! Even you, Wesley! You had many firsts that weekend. Let’s go ahead and talk about them. Ok?
We loaded up Friday, after Daddy finished his work on the new house and headed West to Nana and Papaw’s lake house at Lake Ouachita. You were so excited to see your friends Reagan and Madison! After having dinner with them, we went to bed to rest up for a big Saturday. You slept all night in your pack-n-play for the first time and did just as well as your comfortable crib.
You wore your first swimsuit and looked like a precious baby girl in it! We didn’t bring our boat with us (although that’s the only thing that we did not bring) because we don’t think you are ready to water ski;) Just kidding! We really like Nana and Papaw’s boat because it is all shaded and just our speed! Your first boat ride was eye opening for you and you just looked around with those big blue eyes the entire trip to find our friends. I do think it made you a little drowsy though because you fell asleep before we found them all. You dipped your toes in the water for the first time and seemed to enjoy it despite how bitter cold it was. We stayed out a few hours before heading back for another great dinner with the Shirron’s. While the boys were busy cooking dinner and using the sink, Mommy and Nana gave you a bath in the next best thing to the sink…a big green tub. Daddy got some great pictures of this! On Sunday we woke up and did the same thing again. Mommy could really get used to the lake “schedule.” We had a fish fry Sunday night and Aunt Lauren and Uncle Chris stayed to eat with us. We hope they come back and bring Campbell and Presley. Monday we had a delicious late breakfast before packing everything. You slept for two hours on the trip home. Those lake trips will do that to you baby:)
Oh! How could I almost forget?!?! You seemed to have really found your voice Monday. If only I knew how to upload a video. I could not believe what was coming out of your little body! So loud and for so long! You had your Poppa Wayne tickled! We could barely talk over it all! I’ll figure that out soon and post some videos.
Silly Daddy! Your life jacket won’t fit him!
Such a sweet face!
