Whitney weekend

Gary and I look forward to our adult "Whitney" weekend every year.  It is always a good time with good friends on the lake.  We ride in the boat all day long.  We float in the water at the private dock.  We play silly games at night and just get away from the hustle and bustle of life.  We usually don't have good cell phone reception and that is a blessing.  I get to fully relax!  This year I even limited my camera time.  GASP!  It really was a good thing.  I needed to completely disconnect.

In the years past we drop our kids off at my parents house and head down to Lake Whitney on Friday afternoon.  This year two other couples took their kids to ride in the boat on Thursday so we thought Layla and Hayden would have fun hanging out with them.  We are glad we did.  We all had tons of fun as families and then the next day all the kids got dropped off at the grandparents houses.

Layla was super brave and jumped off a cliff right by the dock.  
I was so nervous for her, but proud too!

Hayden likes splashing in the water, but he doesn't really like deep water.  We had to beg him to get into the water.  Finally he did, but he wasn't happy.

I love this picture of Layla and her daddy!

Layla loves tubing.  She was all smiles tubing with Mia, Macy and Lexi.  Oh how I love all these girls!

I had so much fun on Thursday taking tons of pictures of the kids.  I also went a little overboard snapping shots of the sun setting.  I just love that peaceful time of day.  

Friday through Sunday I made myself put the camera away.  I did take a few pictures of the husbands doing the Sky-ski, but mostly I just had fun catching up with my friends.  We only see some of the couples once a year, so it is always a great reunion.

I am so thankful for my friends and thankful for the time we get to spend with them at the lake!
