Lake Days and Friends!


Here we go again, a big long post. Sorry about that we just can't help it. We like picture, we take so many, so I am doing good just showing you 13 pictures. So all excuses aside, may I present to you Pearson Parker! Look how cute this little boy is. I really could just eat him up! His parents are our good friends Greg and Dru from college. They came up and spent the night with us on Friday and Pearson and BellaRose had a blast playing in the sandbox and the pool. They almost look alike with their blonde hair and brown eyes. Such sweet babies!
Thanks for coming to stay with us Greg, Dru and Pearson! Our door is always open so please come on down (said just like in The Price is Right).

One of my best friends, Margaret, had a birthday last week and to celebrate we went to Lake James over the weekend to camp! This lake is gorgeous. Mountains surrounding the whole thing. I seriously could live here. Worth's sister babysat BellaRose all day Saturday and she spent the night with them too so Worth and I got to camp. I love my baby and I missed her the second I dropped her off, but I gotta tell you, I needed that. We have not camped in so long, and the camping we did this weekend was on a dock, but hey it was in a tent and our backs were sore in the morning. If that is not camping I am not sure what is. We aren't one of those brave parents that are willing to take the baby camping yet. We thought about starting off in the backyard to see if it is even worth the effort. Here are a couple of pictures, lots of jumping off the dock, and only one back (Matt) that smacked the water so loud I think it was heard in Black Mountain!

Worth's sister and her family just happened to be getting a boat Sunday morning at Lake James as well so they brought us BellaRose and we got to go on the boat with them for a little bit. I can tell you with full confidence that BellaRose DID NOT like the life jacket, at least she could still get to that thumb!

The pontoon went all of about 10 mph, but the kids (read-Worth) had fun none the less. Ethan saw Noah out on the tube and wanted to go out there and show his older brother up. He popped up on that tube as soon as he could. We were all amazed and it sort of looks like he was as well.
Just look at that view with Shortoff Mountain in the background.
Next post we will be talking garden, fishing at the beach, and some cupcakes that I made for Margaret. See this post is not as long as it could have been!

Your pics are always so amazing. That little boy with the freckles is adorable. That pic could be an ad somewhere. I am now dying to go to the lake. Emerson is doing swimmies and now loves them! We need to come up and visit!

Seriously, Sun. Try to look a little more 'I have a one year old at home and it's kicking my butt' ok? :)

Great photos- sounds like a great trip on the water. It's hard to go wrong with a lake and a bbq and a bunch of friends... and cutie kiddos!

What a fun weekend! I'm so glad you guys got to do all that! Margeret would have a cool b-day like that, she is just always cool!
BellaRose may not have liked the lifejacket but she sure looked like a super duper cutie tootie pie in it! ( I just decided to go way overboard with the cutsie adjectives they made me laugh)

That's what I've missed most- well besides a good Jack and coke- is the lake. I have not been brave enough to bust out maternity swimwear.....It looks like fun!!! Maybe next year the St Jude dream home will be on Lake James and you can win it Sunday :-)

I know you probably will never read this, but I just saw this blog and the little guy Pearson looks so much like Ryland in that pic. I seriously had to look twice to make sure it wasn't. Very cute. You guys are making a lot of great memories this summer that will last forever.
