We even managed to get the boat into the Garage:

Sharing a Day on the Lake

BJ took his nephews and Dad out on the boat while I chilled with Gamma and the little ones on the beach! It was a wonderful Saturday:)

Sammy excelled at making sand castles and soon there were little towns and cities. 


Katie joined in the fun: 


Jackson helping Kate fill her bucket: 


Sammy made a river and over time built walls to direct it down to a little boat:

Kate, Frank and Sam filling the basement with Lego creations: 



Labor Day Weekend

Our boat didn't stay in the driveway for long, because BJ planed a holiday weekend we will never forget: 


We went camping at Mark Twain National Park and boated everyday on Mark Twain Lake!


While I worked on packing the tent, boat, and Jeep Kate was resting up...under her bed!



Ray didn't crash until after some time on the boat: 


Here we are at the Dam: 




Over look at the Visitor's Center: 




This was in the museum that was built around Mark Twain's childhood home: 



Grandma Copus, this one is for you! There was everything they used to make cloth:


Night Shirts! Because that is just about all the clean laundry we had when we got home:)


In all, we had a fantastic time together!
