Lake Life

A few weeks ago we packed up the girls, something we are now quite exceptional at,
and headed to the Lake for the first time this summer.

A shot of Gracie practicing for our upcoming 4th of July parade in a sparkly top hat  
and the big girls posing at the pool.

Dressed in her fun new 4th of July outfit I made her, Gracie developed a new smile.
I named it the “Popeye Face.”
She is hysterical!

A “hands on the hip" pose in their new dresses  that I made  using this fun tutorial.
I cut off old tank tops and used some fun red, white & blue fabric.
So simple, yet very cute!

Our parade in action.
Gracie drummed & Papa played music.                    Sophie scooted.

A layover at a fun restaurant which was a deck right on the lake.
(There may or may not have been several happy carp with bellies full of French fries
after we got done eating there.)

Back at the condo, Nana and Gracie relaxed on the swimming dock.

Gracie couldn’t get enough of the boats.
Every time one zoomed by us, she shouted “BOAT!”

Thank you Nana & Papa for a wonderful 4th of July weekend!
It was definitely one of the best trips yet.

Hope you all had a fun and memorable 4th of July weekend!
