Every summer, my family meets at Jared's dad's lake house Lake Tenkiller. We always have a blast. With the move to NC, we weren't sure if this would be a tradition we could keep, but the stars aligned and Jared had a meeting he had to be at in the OKC office in July. We made the plans! We decided to stop at the lake on the way in since it would cut about 2 hours off of our drive the second day.
We got to the lake on Thursday and my family wasn't coming until Friday night, so Grandpa Mark and Stephanie met us there to hang out and see the boys.
It was a long trip...
This was his first year to get in the lake so we had to document:
Porter's theme of the trip was snacking. His life jacket made him grumpy and snacks were the only remedy.
Paxton had a blast. He stayed in the water pretty much the whole day. We had to force him to come onto the boat to re-apply sunscreen and make him eat and drink.
Jared bribed him to jump off the Lily Pad with the promise of a fire truck. Paxton wanted a fire truck so he jumped!
That night, we went out for our annual dinner at Soda Steve's.
But there were no tearful goodbyes because we were on our way to OKC!!
