Greetings from Arkansas!

We've been having fun all over Arkansas for the last week. I didn't intend to go this long without posting, but I've had (extremely) sparse internet access until today.

We spent most of today on Beaver Lake...boating, tubing, swimming, and soaking up the sun. SO much fun! Playing on the lake is something I grew up doing, and I love it. So do my kids...





We're heading back to Colorado soon, and I have a lot of catching up to do on the blog!

That's another thing we share -- a love for lakes. Growing up in Minnesota, I grew up spending each summer day in the water. Those pictures look VERY familiar.

I was wondering where you went. Glad to know everything is OK. Keep enjoying yourself!

Jenn said...

So good to see a post from ya! I knew we had not heard from you because y'all were having such a wonderful time.

I have been thinking about you this week in preparing for CO. I will email you this weekend.

Looking forward to hearing about your trip.

It's All Good! said...

That looks like so much fun!
Get home safely!
God bless,
Brenda

I've been wondering where you were! Glad you were doing something fun!

Joanne (The Simple Wife) said...

I love the lake too. Seeing your pictures makes me excited for our trip to the Lake of the Ozarks in August!

Can't wait to catch up when you come home. We'd love to play--Audrey and Emma keep asking for your girls!

Fun pix, Mer. So glad you're enjoying your vacation!

Becca said...

How Fun! I grew up on Beaver Lake-learned how to swim there and water ski. Good times!

Stephanie's Mommy Brain said...

Beaver Lake... you are making me homesick. = ) Can't wait to see more pictures of your trip.

Julie said...

Looks like you all are having a blast.

My parents live on the lake so each summer we go and have a blast there. They are about 3 hours away so we don't get to go that often.

I am glad you all are having fun.

Hugs,
Julie

Oh my goodness!!!! Picture #4 is a Christmas Card Keeper! Your family is so gorgeous. Sounds like an amazing amount of fun. And w.a.t.e.r.--that's something you don't see much of in CO. ;)

Enjoy!

Looks like you are having a great time in AR - and it hasn't even been too horribly hot - THAT is a bonus!

Angie said...

Oh, what FUN! I admit I'm a little jealous. That just looks so refreshing and relaxing. I'm glad you're having so much fun... why stop to blog when you can splash in a lake?!

Kellie said...

I've missed you but have been praying that your travel and vacation plans have gone well and that y'all have been having a great time!

The pictures are fantastic!
