Granny's Lake House 2012

We had another amazing vacation in Virginia at Granny's Lake House.  2 day (20 hour long) road trip, followed by 5 days of swimming, reading, olympics, ipads, family, amazing food and fun followed by 2 day long road trip home.

So what do 32 people do all day in a 7 bedroom, 3 bathroom lake house.  Here is a little video snapshot of some of the things that go one while not swimming or reading on the deck:

What did we ever do before tv and ipads?

The girls knee boarded for the first time.  We couldn't have been more amazed or proud.  Brianna and Hadley both pulled up onto their knees on their first try and acted like they have been doing it their whole lives.   Mia was a little more cautious and decided she just want to ride on her tummy for a while.  However, on day 2 with daddy watching she decided she too was going to climb up onto her knees.  Awesome.  So fun.

Also after Bri's first time she firmly told me to get out of the water that she did not need help.  She could do it by herself and that she like going fast and could handle the bumps.  Heaven help us.

Hadley - Way to Go 3.5 year old!!!!

Note:  all fashion goes out the window for mom when being left to hang out in the middle of the lake.  However, the yellow hat was probably not necessary.  Because this lake is amazing.  It is a bit smaller than the Lake of the Ozarks however while out boating every day we maybe saw one fisherman.  So I was in no risk of being run over.  My bigger fear was being nibbled by fish.

Its like the brave, the wise and the joyous all wrapped up in your girls. I SO remember 10 hour long trips to Colorado when our girls were young...BEFORE all the electronics of today. Once they could read we stocked up with lots of books, played road games and colored A LOT!
