Bass Lake - Round one

I say round one because Lane and I are going here in two weeks for our TEN YEAR ANNIVERSARY!  Ten years.  Woohoo!  

Lane went out of town on a business trip this last week, so last minute the girls and I packed our gear and headed up to Bass Lake to meet my parents for a few days of camping.  I used to go to Bass Lake almost every summer when I was a kid.  And it was even more beautiful than I remember.  The water is so clear and so warm.  And the smells!  Oh the smells!  Pine and fresh air and dirt.  It's so good.  And I got some serious relax time in.  The girls played and played all day and I got to read and nap and lounge.  It was amazing.

We stayed for three days and the girls were in heaven.  I think we'll definitely make it an annual thing.  Can't wait to take baby brother with us next summer!

Isn't it gorgeous?

This little deer hung out a lot.

 Willow Cove.  My favorite part of Bass Lake as a kid.

 The girls and I built a super legit elephant enclosure with a pool (not shown).

Rest time after a looong day of swimming.

4th of July Weekend & Photos!

  We had a big bash at our house on the 4th.  There were tons of people, huge amounts of good food and about a million kids running around.  We even had a camp out in our front yard with just a few of us.  I hardly got any pictures... as usual.  The ones I did get were taken on my iPhone, outside, in the dark... so I'm not even gonna try with those.

The day after our party we packed up and headed up to the lake.  Aaaahhhh.  Four days of doing nothing.  Isn't that the best?  We love Lake San Antonio.  We found a spot where we pretty much have our own private little beach the whole time.  The weather is usually about 100 degrees and the water is perfect.  The girls could live there for sure.  Lane and I could too.  We love to camp.  We're getting better and better at it too.  The only thing missing was our little guy.  It's getting harder every day without him home.  

Here are some pictures from our weekend.  Enjoy!

So nice, huh?

Bridgette just doin' what she does.

Sisterly love.

 I'm so thankful that these tiny ladies love each other so much.

Happy Monday everyone:)
