Lake life

We here at the Lehman house know that summer is almost over. This past weekend we took our annual trip to the Kipfer cottage (my sister-in-law, Gwen's parents). There were a few snags to the beginning of our trip (long story), however, we had a great time.
We arrived on Friday, just in time for supper!! It was Landon's birthday, so of course we had cake and got to sing!
We woke up Saturday morning to a very gray and cloudy day. So our day of course began with more food. (That great picture is of Gwen and Grandma Cathy) (Sorry Deanie no picture of you helping with breakfast.)

After breakfast us ladies headed out for a walk. We saw so many beautiful cottages with such awesome flowers!! We stopped to talk to some friends and got caught in the rain. Once we returned home we played a game of Scattegories. Landon and Brier are always the team to beat. Grandma Cathy and Deanie lost by 2--they wanted a rematch however, that didn't happen. It was so funny it was three generations playing so a lot of the answers were totally different!!



We spent the afternoon in the water the sun was really wasn't out that much on Saturday, but we still had a lot of fun.


Saturday evening was our Mexican Fiesta!!! Gwen brought us supplies from The Party Gallery and she brought it all.



We enjoyed our tacos, beans, rice, salsa and guacamole (yes--I think I fixed my guacamole recipe, it isn't really very spicy, but it is really good) We used our plastic margarita glasses for our Dt. Pepsi, Mt. Dew, Ice tea, Lemonade or water.



Yes, Bre--I know Dr. Pepper--is the BEST!!!!!!!!!




After dishes we even batted at a Pinata!! It was a lot of fun!! (Sorry no pictures of that I was in charge of putting the blind fold on the kids and turning them around.--There is some video footage but not that exciting!!!)



Sunday morning was beautiful!!!!! We hurried, ate our breakfast had a short church service and were out on the lake. Swimming, knee boarding and tubing!!!!


Yes, Ubby tubed for the first time. I think this is Lexi's second year (or her third?). Ubby is with Landon on the tube on the right. Can you see his legs under Landon's arm?You can tell it was a beautiful day--all the chairs are empty!!! Thanks so much Stacey, Gwen, Bre and Brier for having us back again this year. Once again we had a great time--lots of really good memories!!
