What a fun weekend...

Will and Daddy...
Ready for a picnic...
This was the most aggressive duck I have ever seen.  You can see him watching Will's every move in this picture.  He snatched a couple of fries right out of his hand!
Cutie...
Chasin' ducks...
Just a swingin'...
Driving the boat...
Will and Mommy...
He loved it when the boat was moving...we tried to catch him with his hands in the air.  He looked like he was riding a roller coaster!

I feel like this was the first normal weekend we have had in a while!  The move, going out of town, Michael being busy with work, etc has kept us from having some family fun!!!  So this weekend we made up for it with a visit to the park and a day at the lake.  We went out Saturday late in the day with one of our friends on his ski boat and Will loved it and was so good.  Then Sunday after church we rented a pontoon boat and Will was okay.  His nap was obviously cut short, etc. so he was a bit cranky, but got a little better...  He really LOVED throwing his pacy, sippy cup, and cars (that sink) out of the boat.  He also tried to throw bear-bear in for a swim, but I was able to snag it before he did.  I think part of the problem was his life jacket.  It fits when he is standing but when he sits down it rides up around his neck, so it couldn't have been comfortable - but there was no way I was going to take it off of him!  It was a beautiful day and the water was gorgeous - crystal clear (which is how I like my lake water!).  Hope you all had a great weekend too!

LOVE being out on the lake! I keep checking for Emily-sized life vest gear but haven't found it yet.

Cute, cute. That is funny - he was riding around with his hands up in the air! That lake is one of the prettiest around. How did you like the pontoon boat?

sounds really fun! Not a good idea throwing all your toys in the lake, perhaps he'll have to learn the hard way.

I'm so glad you finally had a "normal" weekend. I know it's been very stressful with the move, etc. so what a great family weekend!

Good pictures of what looks like a great weekend! By the way, the Body Glove lifejackets that have two straps between the legs are the best (for Clark anyway)...they don't ride up much compared to the others we've tried. I love the picture of Will and you in black and white...so cute!

Jennifer said...

Sounds like a great weekend! I love being on a lake. Too funny about Will throwing stuff in the lake. He's a mess.

Glad y'all had a fun weekend, the photos are great. Will is sooo cute, I just love his hair.

you look cute as ever Courtney. I think will looks a little bit like Beau in that Black and white pic of you and him. Aggressive ducks scare me. One time a few years ago I took my neice up to the lake to feed the ducks and I guess they had not been fed or something bc they were chasing us. Really. We ended up running back to the car and leaving. Pretty funny. But they do make some scary noises. They don't always just say "Quack".
