Here's a picture dump of our trip.
We're all packed up and getting ready to leave the house.
Joe and the kiddos in the hotel bed, we drove as far as Junction City, KS the first night and then finished the trip in the morning.
Girls were staying up super late and hanging out at the bonfire with us.
The next morning the view from our porch.
Joe managed to save this turtle off the road and bring it home to a very excited Austin.
Breakfast the first morning at Jolly Roger's.
Paddle boatin' with Dad.
When my parents got there the kids and I spent pretty much all our time on their boat.
Joe was able to put on a professional level fireworks display at the house.
The expectant parents. :-D
It rained a ton a couple of the nights and caused the whole lake to rise up over our sea wall. Which in turn caused the Governor of Missouri to declare the lake a no wake lake until the water drained.
So we went on very slow cruises. Complete with Jackson's jumpy seat.
And Austin driving.
And Goose and Helen laying out.
I kept him in the shade most of the time but moved the towel to take this picture.
These boys, it's always so much fun to watch lifelong friends hang out together.
Lord only knows what Moorehouse has on the other end of this.
