Katie kicking her feet in the water with her friends
Katie did great swimming around the lake today. She got so excited when I told her it was alright to get in, she jumped in and forgot to close her mouth. She came up all big eyes and spitting. After that she made sure to close her mouth and she didn't jump like that again.

She loved this blow up - I guess it was fun to jump around on and it had a slide
Took this picture from the step going up to the house - Katie was in the blow up with her buddy, "T"
House was up on a bluff - Took picture further up towards the house..
Connie and Keith had a nice boat house. I loved their house! She's an interior designer and trust me, I just took in. I'm wanting to paint our Kitchen-Dining Room-Living Room (warmer color). Connie's has the same open area (Kitchen,Dining Room & Living Room) and she had her area painted with the warm stone look, just like I had pictured in my mind. Her walls were much darker than I would like, but I loved her stone tile wall.
Their house was practically on a bluff. You should have seen the steps that we all had to walk down and YES, up to and from the water. It was easy going down to the water, but you had better rest a good while before heading back up to the house. SHEW! By the time I got back down to the water, I felt like jumping in myself. Us older folks had to take a break half way. After the fourth time of climbing these stairs, my legs felt like jello. While standing in line, I told Mrs. Katie that my legs were jerking. We both had to laugh because hers was doing the same.
I think everyone had a wonderful time today. I know I had a better time than I initally thought. I have to admit that when I heard we were going to the lake for our year end party, I got a little nervous. There are so many things to take into consideration when you go to the lake. You have to think about boat traffic, snakes, possible trash in the water, etc. I was pleasantly surprised and felt more at ease by the time I checked everything out and spoke to the owners.
The kids had a blast and hated leaving soon after lunch. Connie and Keith went all out to show us a good time. They were very hospitable and enjoyed getting to know them a little better. If you ever need a great interior decorator, I'll getcha in contact with her. HAHA!
