{Weekend recap on Wednesday}

Well hopefully these late recaps aren't a trend!! We had a fantastic 4 days at the lake. So thankful we could stay an extra couple days.
I will let the photos do most of the talking because:
1. We all know I always have a lot of photos. :)
2. I only have a couple minutes here while Delainey is napping otherwise she is climbing my legs and needing my full attention. Weekends away are always amazing but I find the first day back a doozy!
Friday we arrived at the lake and then soon after we did Grampa & Chris did as well as Jeff and Jolie!
Little did we know Jeff had a BIG surprise for mainly Jolie but it made for the such a fun night. 
A casual ride in the "squirt" (boat my Grandad built and Dad has kept in working fashion) to see if the motor was sputtering (all a big plow...)
Turned into this:
 It was the longest few minutes waiting for them to return from their boat ride while we were holding that sign. Mom and I were already in tears before Jolie even saw the sign!
SO fun and so incredibly happy for these two. So proud of Jeff and so excited that Jolie will now "officially" be my sister! And now it's wedding planning time!!! eeekkk!
This little love already loves the lake. I know it.
Chris and David having a chat with Delainey.
Mom filled the pool with balls and Delainey LOVED it. We got some adorable videos.
She was pretty thrilled with me cutting her nails also! 
 And even more pumped for a cuddle with Uncle Jeff!!
We went to the market and then Mom walked home with Delainey so Cruz and I took advantage of the sun!
It was a beautiful weekend weather wise.
 Sunday Jeff and Jolie had to leave early as Jolie was heading to LA to spend some time with her brother and parents. 
Walks with Cruz and Delainey
For the sole purpose of this happening...
 At dinner Delainey was getting antsy so Gramma gave her half her baked potato and Delainey thought that was great!
Delainey toy at becomes Cruz's bed many times throughout the day.
Justin, Cruz and Delainey - Father's Day photo! - No idea why there is a fuzzy spot on these. ;(
Justin had a good Father's Day that included a bike ride with my Dad and long naps.
 My Mom's Dad - My Dad and Delainey's Dad 
Great Grampa, Great Grandma Chris and Delainey and I
 Delainey played in the pool with water and the balls!
 And in her new bikini from cousin Ashley and Scott. It has matching sunglasses!
Waking up at the lake on a Monday is a great feeling. Even better when the pelicans join!
We went for her first kayak ride. She didn't love her new life jacket - it's too big so it wasn't a huge success. We will try again with the one she wore last time!
 She LOVES stroller naps.
 Me too.
We had good visits with Nana too with the toys she bought for at her cabin!
Finding more toys!
 Poncho baby!
 Packing up the truck - these two made sure they weren't getting left!
And then it was time to head home. :( Hate leaving the lake. But it was an awesome weekend: celebrating Jeff and Jolie, celebrating Chris's retirement, celebrating Jolie passing her thesis and visiting with Grampa & Chris along with the rest of the family.
