my birthday weekend

We started off the weekend grabbing a cheeseburger for lunch.

We had fun eating and acting silly in the booth...I love my family!

We got to Lake Ray Roberts and set up our campsite.  We love taking the little swimming pool.  When we aren't at the lake we can still be in the water.  The kids got into the pool as soon as it was filled with water.  Hayden and Gary played catch and Hayden acted silly as usual.  He cracked us up with the silly bucket on his head.  

We had a huge lunch, so we ate cheesecake for dinner Friday night!  It was the perfect birthday dinner :)

Saturday we got up and ate bacon and eggs; went to the sandy beach and swam for a few hours.  It was a hot June day so we decided to eat our watermelon.  It was in the cold cooler so it cooled us down in no time.  For dinner we ate grilled jalapeƱos, hot dogs and beans.  And of course we had cheesecake again for our dessert.  After a nature hike to the not so sandy part of the lake we all took showers and the kids went to bed.  Gary and I had fun talking all evening long.  It was a fun and quiet time for us.

Oh...I almost forgot the most important part...the smores.  YUM! 

Sunday we got up and headed to the beach again for a few hours.  We were worn out, so we packed up and headed home.   We were so happy to be home in the cool air.  It was HOT all weekend long.  I am terrified of the August heat to come.

Our dogs stayed home all weekend, and when they saw us they were so happy!

Bogey is such a goof.  He passed out on the couch like this. HA!

I had the best weekend and I am so thankful our family will be able to pack up and go camping all summer long.   AND we have some friends that want to camp with us this summer.  YAY!   Camping with friends is always fun because the kids have playmates to hang out with!

  Sunday night I was doing laundry like a mad woman to get ready for a busy school week, but it is summer.  It is so weird for Layla to not have school 5 days a week.  I am really going to enjoy having her around.  I hope I don't run out of things to do to keep us entertained.   Momma has to get creative!

Happy Summer!!
