Found it.

Summer that is. It's at the lake.
Not here at home. Already today it's cloudy with very dark clouds.You best stay away rain! We have Jeff coming over to help with the deck tonight and we left a beautiful lake day early yesterday to get supplies...just warning you.

I am also warning all of you readers that this post will be a little heavy on the photos! What can I say I love photos and apparently my family is very photogenic. :) 
PS. These are all iphone pics so if the quality is off that's why.
So this weekend we had Justin's Mom Debbie, Crystal, Troy and Emerson join us at the lake with my Mom and Dad. (We missed Jeff and Jolie though).
Side Note: 2 sleeps Jols - 2. Can you believe it? You better be ready to see me Friday!!

 Emerson reading books to her tired cousin...
So cute!!
Troy, Cruz and Justin enjoyed a beer at the end of the pier - a couple times!
Emerson's favorite face to make for photos.
But still looking super cute in the life jacket my Mom got.
Beach babe!!
Mom and Dad bought a little pool for all of our little guests to play in this summer as the lake is very deep this year. Our first little guest LOVED it. She spent many hours in there and we had lots of fun! Cruz joined her a few times too!
Emerson and Troy went for a quick swim and dunk in the lake and then she was ALL DONE and needed hugs!!
Morning play time. 
Playing with Uncle Justin.
Cruz cuddling with my Dad in the boat.
Justin & Cruzie.
The Dicks.
Crystal and Emerson.
Cruz reading with Debbie.
Emerson and Troy went for a paddle board ride.
Amazing what a difference a year makes!!
Looks like this will be our new tradition each summer! 
Emerson and Auntie.
Cruz likes to sit on my lap.
Emerson enjoyed the boat rides. "Yay yay" as she says.
It was a wonderful weekend. The weather was AMAZING and we had lots of family time. We played catch phrase, had great meals, enjoyed the sun, went to the market and for boat rides, played lots with Emerson, had a bonfire, played washers, Troy and Justin went on many bike rides, watched a wicked thunder and lightning storm we had one night, etc, etc, etc. We were busy!!
We LOVED spending so much time with Emerson, she is so fun right now. Talking up a storm, mimics whatever you say, loves to play and is busy busy busy. 
She sure makes us laugh!!

Mom and I also finished the JUNE AB CHALLENGE! YAY. More on that and our next challenge to come.

Well back at work today - 4 days and then I am DONE. 
Have a great Tuesday!!

What a perfect time at the lake! I am so craving some boating time! But I must admit... I'm very jealous of your dark clouds at home! Utah is in a serious drought and we are in desperate need of clouds and rain!
