Every summer we go on vacation with my parents and my sister's kids. This year we went up to Lake LBJ. It was a looong drive, but the kids handled it better than Josh and I. We had fun.
The weekend was full of lots of swimming, lots of eating, lots of fishing, lots of playing ball in the yard, and lots of pictures. Friday night we got to feed a bunch of baby ducks and on Saturday night we swam with them and even got to pet one a few times! That was probably the highlight of the trip for me and KayTar.
Sunday morning, we went out in a boat and had a great time. The kids each got a turn helping my dad drive and we would drive around the lake for a while and stop to swim and cool off every once in a while. We worried about how it would affect KayTar, since she gets dizzy so often, but she LOVED it. She said, "I'm doing my PT on the boat!" because standing on it felt like the wobble board at therapy and she had to climb a ladder into the boat.
KayTar loved every minute of vacation, I think. This was the first year that she got to fish with the big kids and she was very excited. BubTar had fun learning to throw the baseball around and playing with his cousins. Josh had a great time fishing, even though they never caught the big fish that kept teasing them. I had a great time taking photos...all 513 of them. There was a lot of formless time and only one shared TV and no WiFi. I got a little antsy during the midday lull on Saturday...I'm not used to doing nothing and evidently it isn't my strong suit. Maybe the premed requirements should include a course on how to relax. ;)
There were so many photos that I absolutely love, I had a hard time narrowing them down for this post!! If you have dial-up, I apologize. ;)
Great photos!! And I love the itty bitty turtle:)
kyla these are great! looks like you had a lovely time.
These are really fantastic, Kyla. Together they tell such a great story, and many of the shots are just breathtaking.
I'm glad you enjoyed yourself, in spite of the forced relaxation!
Beautiful, beautiful photographs, K. I'm so glad you had such an amazing time together.
Maybe you should be a photographer? And a doctor, of course.
Thanks everyone! I really enjoy playing around with photography and I'm really fond of this particular batch of photos!
What great summertime photos! It looks like the kids had a terrific time.
Awww. Great photos. Gorgeous family. I really believe vacation, and just being in a completely different environment, expands little brains!
P.S. My word verification for this comment is "braini" - blogger agrees!
Oh, I love these photos. Your kids are beautiful, as always.
Oh my gosh, Kyla! How is this the first time that I've realized you have a blog too? I'm so glad to have found it--lovely! I also love your photography!!
I have too many favorite photos in this post to even keep track! Some of the ones of BubTar made my heart skip a beat. So precious!
