Lake Hamilton 2009

Some friends let us use their lakehouse for the weekend.. Amber and her fam went up and stayed Friday night, the rest of us met them on Saturday for a fun filled day on the lake!! Ben had to work so he wasn't able to attend, we really missed him!!

Amber and I after a loooong day on and off the lake.. the girls being goofy acting like Nonny (aka mom) in their matching hats!!
just Megan!!
Megan was terrified of the tube.... that is when it was hooked to the boat. I'm guessing it's because everytime someone fell off we'd all yell, clap, laugh, etc. I'm pretty sure she thought we were hurting them.. when it was on land she decided to get in, then proceeded to tell me, "get in Auntie!!"
Laci and her big catch - ha
Her daddy was there to get it off for her..

Megan with her life jacket on.. which she wasn't fond of!! Amber let the girls get in the lake with their floaties on, it made a world of difference!!
She's getting too old, tooooooo quick!!
me and my loves!!!!!!!!!
We had a blast @ the lake, we hope to do it again soon!! Only this time with Benny : )

Avery - 1 year old!!

Avery is a year old and getting so big... she now weighs close to 115lb!! She still sleeps in our bed, I've created a monster!! She really is a good dog, she loves Ben and I soo much!! Our family laughs because she's soo spoiled but she's all we've got for now.. she will always be our #1 baby!! This is Avery's pool she LOVES!! It's also become a water dish.. I clean it out and put fresh water in it a couple times a week..

It's so funny that she always goes to the shady part of the grass.. she's like a human I swear!!
This is her play mode.. she's either about to pounce or start chewing on a toy..

typical Av position.. we say she's "airing out"


Our close family friends, the Burton's have been out of town the past week.. we were told to use their pool as often as we'd like... we took them up on their offer!!

Laci has been a swimming fool this summer!! She's now jumping off the diving board with no floaties and swimming to the side.. she attempted a front flip and belly flopped.. she reverted back to the floaties for a few more jumps.. she's now back to no floaties!!
Wes will be attending Georgia State in the fall to play baseball.. we are soo proud of him!! Here Laci is cheering for him, "Go Georgia State Panthers!!" Laci was wanting me to get off the floatie and play in the water!!

Benny update

I have to brag on Ben.. he's had two micro tests thus far which he's made a 125% and 120% on.. did I mention the tests were only worth 100??? He's been working four 12 hour shifts a week plus going to class Monday & Wednesday nights from 5-9 and studying... oh yea, hanging out with Avery and I in his spare time : ) I couldn't be more proud of him!! We are both eager for him to start actual nursing school.. only a few more weeks!! Keep him (us) in your prayers!!
