Priest Lake 2010

I wanted to get these pictures on the blog and will type some words later. Had a great time

Rebecca having some down time on the beautiful couch.

You have to watch out for these two together. They have so much fun together.

Aunt Sarah, Thomas, and Jonah

One evening after dinner, we took the kids out to get ice cream and sat on the dock. It was so nice to just relax. The lake was so calm that night. I had to fight the urge to jump on the jet ski and slice throught the water.

Noah always gets into his food

Great shot of the moon coming out at 8:00 p.m.

I'm really surprised that no one actually fell into the water.

Can't believe he is turning 7 on August 1st.

I'm not quite sure what to say about this picture other than Jonah is way to cool for himself. I'm sure if he had a facebook account, this would be his picture.

They always have a great time in the boat. They can't get enough.

Looks like he is in the mafia

Jacob loves to get buried in the sand because he said the pressure on him feels so calming.

Two fish

You never know what that kid is thinking.

We caught Sarah and Josh having a moment to themselves without any kids. I snuck through the bushes to get this shot. Yeah, I am a little strange.

The finished product. He spent so much time laughing, that all the sand fell off.

He must have been searching for gold on the bottom.

Jacob tried to bury Noah, but he had too many rules--no sand here or no sand there, or not near my ears etc. Jacob walked off. Too high maintanence.

Jonah and Noah did join another family reunion in progress and they played volleyball.

Always against better judgement, we let the kids drive the boat.

Noah does this tongue thing when he tries really hard. It is very cute. We haven't told him yet.

We must have towed the kids for hours on this thing. It was one of the best father's day gifts ever.

Jonah chillin.

Rebecca and I took the jet skiis over to Elkins Resort and sat on their lawn and had coffee one morning. It was beautiful there. I think we mapped out the next 5 years of family planning for our children in 30 minutes. It's amazing what you can do in 30 minutes uninterrupted.

Sarah pulled the two boys on the jet skit. It worked pretty well.

We did rent kayaks on two different days and it was a fun alternative. The kids loved it. I had to take a try and bring it over to them. They all did great.

It was tiring, but Noah pushed through and did a great job.
Jacob had a great time exploring on his own around the creek.

Noah was fighting hard to make it back once the water got a bit choppy. He was exhausted afterwards.

Jonah waiting patiently for his turn.

Jacob normally does some sort of project when we are there and this time it was a pirate ship. He worked on it for hours and went out to find the perfect pieces of wood.

Had to try and take a picture of the clear sky at night with the beautiful moon. Hard to capture.

Noah is quite the thrasher when it comes to sleep, so we always have to take pictures of him to prove ourselves.

Cousin, Charlotte, out at the pool towards the end of the trip.

Picture of Noah thrashed from two hours of swimming. he just doesn't know when to stop himself.

Papa with Thomas waiting on the edge of the pool.

Noah is so good with Thomas and Thomas really enjoys being with Noah.

Getting closer to the end of the project time.

Josh and thomas after he got back in the boat from knee boarding.

Jonah big thing this year was to knee board. He tried hard and had a great time doing it. He was so proud of himself

I wish we could rent this place for a month and hust hang out. A goal for the future.

What's not to love about this pklace?

Some pre-dinner play time

The place owns their own plane and so the kids ran out there to watch it take off.

This was right out in front of our unit.

The finished product. We did try it out and it did float in the hot tub.

Dressed just in case it turns arctic all of a sudden

Jonah trying to navigate the water ways

Noah couldn't take the wind anymore so he had to wear my sweatshirt.

Working so hard.

Teamwork people. Work together!! We had a great time this year and as always hated to leave, but we will be back next year. Good-bye Priest Lake.
