Sunday At The Lake

Sunday was not as warm as Saturday at the lake. It was windy and only about 75 degrees. Not much swimming for Alexis on Sunday, as it was too chilly. We mostly just relaxed and enjoyed a day of not doing much of anything too stressful.




Well ... Billy did take time to uncover the boat to clean it and wipe it down after a long winter of being covered.
















He worked very hard and it was nice and clean when he was done.














I kept him company - on a nearby chair.


I supervised.
















Little Billy helped Daddy.

Both stopped long enough for Mom to take a picture.













And then ... Daddy took a break and Alexis and Daddy had some cartoon time together. Daddy loves cartoons almost as much as Alexis.












Finally, we see those older girls. They came out of their room long enough to make a cake.

















Daddy got up from watching cartoons to play with another one of his toys.



Mom tore herself away from the cake long enough to play with her toy.


















Little Billy was mom's chauffeur for a while - he's a good little driver.














Then ... he got tired of driving and so he jumped off to ride his Rip-Stick and show Mom some of his tricks.















So as to not exhaust himself, he grabs a hold of the back of the golf cart and lets Mom pull him along. He's lucky to have such a cool mom.











Even though the weather cooled off and the sun was scarce on Sunday, we managed to have a really good day.

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend too!

It looks like a nice day. Its overcast and grey here in the pacific nw and only in the low 50's

Pam said...

I'm glad that you had a good day anyway, even though it was colder. I love seeing pictures of you in your real like....so much fun!

Tammy said...

Ok, seriously. Now I am downright envious! lol! :)

I loved seeing all the photos of your family! Thanks so much for sharing them with all of us.

Kelli said...

Oh its really only 42 degrees out. I was wrong. I had guessed about the low 50's. Send the sun our way. Even in the 70's would be so nice for us. haha

jennwa said...

What a fun Sunday!!!!!

Brittany said...

Ohhh as soon as my kids can drive me around, I think I will let them! :) haha.

Looks like a great time!

Jen said...

It all looks like fun to me. I can't wait for some nice weather around here so I can spend some much needed time outside. Enjoy!

Jenn @ Juggling Life said...

Our next door neighbors sold their house and moved to South Carolina to live on a lake with all the cool toys. I guess if we're ever gonna do it we might want to wait until the San Diego housing market rebounds!

Looks like a mighty good time--especially the lounge chair part!

Crazy Daisy said...

Looks like a fun time! Happy to hear you had a great weekend

Kelly said...

Sounds like you're having a relaxing time!! I'm jealous of your weather though....we've only warmed up into the 40's here.

jen said...

the beginning of a very promising week!

MamaGeek said...

Now THAT is a perfect weekend. Especially with you at supervisor. Still sending well wishes for you on that baby.

Kami said...

Oh that golf cart reminds me of the Bahamas.... we had one to toot around the island on. What fun that was!

Glad you are enjoying yourselves even though the weather is not cooperating.

:-)

Dawn said...

I enjoyed seeing all the wonderful pictures of you and your family. It looks so nice and relaxing at your lake house. You are a cool mom.

Karen said...

I am so glad that you guys are relaxing. You deserve it.

But I have to say that I'm a tad jealous of your "cool" weather. Do you know how much chocolate I'd give up for the scorching heat of 75 degrees at this point?

Melanie said...

Looks like you're having a lot of fun!

bermudabluez said...

I so enjoyed looking at all your lake pictures! Reminds me of my place at the lake......ACK! I wish it would WARM up already...still in the 30's here. Your golf cart looks like a blast! Too bad you can't really zoom around FAST!! And yes, you ARE a cool mom, Kellan!!

Cathy said...

Love the photos -- especially those of you supervising! I try to adopt a similar role on our camping trips.

My Goodness said...

Everyone is all relaxed, how nice!

Now send some cake my way! :)

jennifer h said...

I like to supervise, too. Supervisors get to drink iced tea and put up their feet. Yep.

It looks like you're having a great time!

Kathryn said...

I'll say it again. That looks like heaven! Glad you are all having such a wonderful time! Great pics!

Shan said...

Great pictures. Looks like you had a lovely time away.

Angie said...

Ahhhh... Nice and relaxing. Not a care in the world - except staying away from the cake. That would be my vice.

I love lakes - skiing, boating, swimming, jet-skiing, playing, lounging, drinking, eating... LOVE IT!

KEEP BELIEVING

Joanna said...

I swear I heard "It's the good life" playing in the background as I read this. :)

JCK said...

Cake, cool boats,rip stick...what more could you ask for? Oh, a golf cart!

Ahhh, Kellan Renee...now that my volunteer duties have wrapped up for the year, I will now be free to stop by and pick up Lizzy on my way to your lake place! Beautiful! And such fun toys! Thanks for all the fun pix--especially those two handsome Billys, and the twins. Oh, yeah, and the World's Greatest Supervisor, too :)! That IS the good life, huh?

Have a wonderful day, Kellan Renee!
