Lakehouse mini-vacation

Sophia and Reece looking for fishies on the dock and making their Mommies very nervous!! Don't worry, we were holding on to them!
Daddy and Joe bouncing on the dock.

This is the view from the dock of the back of the lake house. It was an amazing log cabin and a great place to rest after our intense 5 weeks of training!

Hanging out on the porch. And, YES, we all have jackets on. It was cold to us Texans!

We got to celebrate Daniel's 28th birthday at the lake house. Here Reece and him are blowing out his fake candles on his requested fun-fetti cake with cream cheese icing.

The Daddies took the girls on a canoe ride.

Reece and her buddy Sophia reading together.

The neighbors were so nice and offered to take us on a boat ride on the Lake. Here we are: Joe, Me, Simon and Piper.

Reece fell right asleep as soon as the boat got moving. Sophia was sitting on the other side of Daniel, and she fell asleep right after Reece. It was funny to see their little heads bobbing the whole time.

Joe love the wind in his face! He did great, until he decided he wanted to get down and crawl and I wouldn't let him. He protested by crying and screaming, but at that point, the ride was almost over, so it wasn't too bad.

The friendly neighbor with the boat also has a little Piper Cub float plane. Ross and Daniel were really hoping to get a ride in it, too, but I guess the friendly neighbor wasn't THAT friendly :)

Reece and Sophia played SO well together! Reece happily let Sophia put lots of pretty bows in her hair. She barely lets ME fix her hair!!

Reece was in Heaven when we went back to the Charelton's house because Sophia has princess dress up clothes!!

Daniel got to speak at Moody Aviation, and then he hung out there most of the day. Ross let us practice our Segway skills in the hanger.

They are so fun!
Our friends, the Chareltons, really blessed us with their kindness and encouragement. They went to a lot of trouble to cook for us and make us comfortable. They are awesome and we love them!!
