We received a phone call from dear friends this weekend inviting us to come up to their lake house for a few days. This family is precious to us and of course my kids would drop anything for a fun time at their lakehouse. After juggling appointments, previous commitments and throwing in a few clothes, we headed off Sunday afternoon.
Only a handful of family friends, excluding relatives, have ever invited ALL of us over. I think many would be overwhelmed at the thought of entertaining our crew, but believe it or not, my kids are unusually very well-behaved when we try endeavors like this. I was very proud of them this week. Our friends had relatives there as well and there was a total of 16 kids and 5 adults. It was a total blast. The kids all got along well, there was only one fight that I know of, and it was two of mine at bedtime. (K and ME scratching each other, but that's another story)
A huge thanks to our friends (the L's) for inviting us, putting up with us, and entertaining my kids for hours on their boat. What a blast and fun memories my kids will have.
Enjoy viewing our fun times.
