The Lake

The boys playing skee ball trying to win AK more tickets!

I debated about which blog to post this but decided it had more info regarding the fam versus just Abby Kate.  We had a BALL this past weekend on our LAST vacation as a family of three.  Oh it was SO great to get away!  We got to leave Wednesday and stayed until yesterday so it was a perfect amount of time to rest and renew.  We have been going to this lake every summer since I can remember.  My parents talked this time about buying a condo there (it is about a 4 hour drive for us) but I tried to talk them into a putting in a pool at their house instead.  However now that I am home, I am already missing it!  This place holds SUCH great memories for me.  Each place we go is awaited all year long in anticipation.  My favorite being a restaurant called the Blue Heron which is fancy and delicious.  Abby Kate was wonderful this time as we all feasted on batter-fried lobster.  Yes, it is as decadent as it sounds.  We went to the boardwalk and watched B play in the batting cages and AK got to play skee ball for $.25.  We watched fireworks on the 4th while eating Randy's famous custard (another tradition).  We actually started a new one this year by going to a super fun indoor kids place that had a HUGE arcade and then a small roller coaster and HUGE maze/playground.  She literally played for hours with her exhausted, sweaty Daddy climbing behind her.  It is directly across from the mall so we know what future vacations will hold now :)
B and I got to see 2 movies while Sweecie and Poppy watched AK.  We sat out on the deck each morning watching the boats, feeding the ducks and fish and eating breakfast.  It really was heaven!
We weren't sure we were even going to get to go but went to the doctor on the way out of town and I was dilated to a 1-2 so we thought it was safe seeing as I was dilated to a 4 for 4 weeks with AK.  I did have a ton of contractions on the trip but God brought us home safely!  Thanks for all who prayed that we would get to go.   It was a PERFECT trip!
