The one at the beach house

A couple weekends ago we headed over to Anderson Island with our good friends, the Rigtrups. Their friend offered them the use of their beach house. And Seriously, prime spot, right on the sound!! It had such a beautiful view, and the location was perfect. It was just the little get-a-way that our little family needed! Erik wasn't able to make it with us, his brother was in town, but we are hoping to go again someday! We had such a blast. We headed up Friday late afternoon,. Saturday, we headed to a local lake and it was definitely the best lake we have ever been to. They had a little kiddie slide and a bigger slide for older kids, farther out in the lake. There was also a raised platform dock you could jump/dive off of! So much fun! I showed off a little on the platform dock thinking Brooklyn and Troy would be totally impressed with their "cool" mom, but they didn't really care! lol Ah well. It was a great weekend spent with great friends, eating great food, and lots of R & R...just what the Dr. ordered. 

Sunset, Friday night. Beautiful!!

I was standing on the deck while the kids played below on the beach. 

Success!! They found tons of tiny crabs

These two have so much fun together! (Troy and Thomas)

Kiddie slide in the shallow area


Brooklyn swam out to the big slide...she's my brave one!

I think she changed her mind mid-slide lol notice the grip she has on the slide, as if she could stop herself! Going down once was good enough for her. :)

Troy, Brooklyn and Bryant playing in the sand. They have so much fun together!
