Bear Lakey!

We had a great return to the Lake! It was Casey's first year, and I think he managed to have a wonderful time amongst the crazies.

Casey golfed every morning and did better each time. I went to the beach every morning and got more sun each time. It was perfect! We even scored some quality floaties for the water, and also caught some rays sitting on the giant island floaty via the Welch family.

Casey's favorite part was of course the wave runners. He got to go out all by himself! And then there was a small almost accident between some of the cousins but that is ok because it was a small almost accident. We also tried our hands at volleyball, which was a great success. Usually the fam isn't prone to such great physical feats but this year was different, and it was a marvelous time. 

Following the nightly dinner routine we spent some time at La Beau's because that is just what you do. And then we dabbled in some card games like Tribal Uno and Mormon Bridge. What a delight!

In the history of family vacations, this is the ultimate family vacation. It is better than Christmas. Every year brings new memories and better relationships than the year before. I am so happy Casey gets to be in on the fun now!

We really had a great time up at the lake and are already looking forward to whatever next year brings! 

Casey's thoughts on the matter: It was fun. I had corndogs.

Once uponst my blogging travels, I read of a couple having late night chats into the early hours of the morn. I instantly thought to myself, "How fortunate for these people that they have no regard for bedtimes or early morning work hours. I wish Casey and I could have such luxuries". And then BAM!

I don't know if it was our inspiring drive home from the lake (no radio or musica) or not, but all of the sudden we are the biggest Chatty Cathy's the world has ever had!

We've covered all sorts of topics including but not limited to:

  • Chubby Chasers/Pear shaped people
  • People who can afford to buy houses
  • Career options
  • The "new" BCS
  • Dream career options
  • Actual dreams
  • Past dating experiences
  • Wedding videos (we watched and discussed)
  • College football
  • Gingers
  • Admiration of  others
I am working these bullet points lately, like it's my job! Anyway...At one point or another either of us tried to go to bed but that is a major no no when trying to achieve late night chats. However, once Casey starts speaking nonsense like, "Did they climb the tree?", when discussing people buying homes...I know it is time for bedy-byes! 

Such fun memories. 


The making of our actual wedding video! Can't wait to see it!
